JETHRO TULL - Wond'ring Again Lyrics

There's the stillness of death on a deathly unliving sea,And the motor car magical world long since ceased to be,When the eve-bitten apple returned to destroy the tree.Incestuous ancestry's charabanc ride,Spawning new millions throws the world on it's side.Supporting their far-flung illusion, the national curse,And those with no sandwiches please get off the bus.The excrement bubbles,The century's slime decaysAnd the brainwashing government lackeysWould have us sayIt's under control and we'll soon be on our wayTo a grand year for babies and quiz panel gamesOf the hot hungry millions you'll be sure to remain.The natural resources are dwindling and no one grows old,And those with no homes to go to, please dig yourself holes.We wandered through quiet lands, felt the first breath of snow.Searched for the last pigeon, slate grey I've been told.Stumbled on a daffodil which she crushed in the rush, heard it sigh,And left it to die.At once felt remorse and were touched by the loss of our own,Held it's poor broken head in her hands,Dropped soft tears in the snow,And it's only the taking that makes you what you are.Wond'ring aloud will a son one day be bornTo share in our infancyIn the child's path we've worn.In the aging seclusion of this earth that our birth did surpriseWe'll open his eyes.
