JETHRO TULL - Skating Away On The Thin Ice Of The New Dayrate me
Meanwhile back in the year one --- when you belonged to no-one ---<br>You didn't stand a chance son, if your pants were undone.<br>`cause you were bred for humanity and sold to society ---<br>One day you'll wake up in the present day ---<br>A million generations removed from expectations<br>Of being who you really want to be.<br>Skating away ---<br>Skating away ---<br>Skating away on the thin ice of the new day.<br><br>So as you push off from the shore,<br>Won't you turn your head once more --- and make your peace with everyone? <br>For those who choose to stay,<br>Will live just one more day ---<br>To do the things they should have done.<br>And as you cross the wilderness, spinning in your emptiness:<br>You feel you have to pray.<br>Looking for a sign<br>That the universal mind (!) has written you into the passion play.<br><br>Skating away on the thin ice of the new day.<br><br>And as you cross the circle line, the ice-wall creaks behind ---<br>You're a rabbit on the run.<br>And the silver splinters fly in the corner of your eye ---<br>Shining in the setting sun.<br>Well, do you ever get the feeling that the story's<br>Too damn real and in the present tense? <br>Or that everybody's on the stage, and it seems like<br>You're the only person sitting in the audience? <br><br>Skating away on the thin ice of the new day.
