rate me

I'm floating over strange land,<br>It's a soulless, sequined, showbiz moon.<br>I'm floating over strange land,<br>And then stranger still, there's no balloon.<br>But I'm getting higher,<br>Wafted up by fame's fickle fire 'til the...<br><br>Chalkhills and children,<br>Anchor my feet.<br>Chalkhills and children,<br>Bringing me back to earth,<br>Eternally and ever ermine street.<br>(even I never know where I go when my eyes are closed.)<br><br>I'm skating over thin ice,<br>Upon blunted blades of metal soft.<br>I'm skating over thin ice,<br>While some nonesuch net holds me aloft.<br>But I'm getting higher,<br>Lifted up on lucks' circus wire 'til the...<br><br>Chalkhills and children,<br>Anchor my feet.<br>Chalkhills and children,<br>Bringing me back to earth,<br>Eternally and ever ermine street.<br><br>Even I never know where I go when my eyes are closed.<br>Even I never spied that the scenes were posed.<br>Even I never knew this is what I'd be.<br>Even eyes never mean that you're sure to see.<br><br>Still I'm getting higher,<br>Rolling up on three empty tyres, 'til the...<br><br>Chalkhills and children,<br>Anchor my feet.<br>Chalkhills and children,<br>Bringing me back to earth,<br>Eternally and ever ermine street.<br><br>I'm soaring over hushed crowds,<br>The reluctant cannonball it seems.<br>I'm soaring over hushed crowds,<br>I'm propelled up here by long dead dreams.<br><br>Still I'm getting higher,<br>Icarus regrets and retires puzzled.<br><br>Chalkhills and children,<br>Anchor my feet.<br>Chalkhills and children,<br>Oddly complete.<br>(even I never know where I go when my eyes are all closed.)<br><br>Here I go again.
