Skating Away...


I like Jethro Tull!


Skating Away on the Thin Ice of a New Day
(Jethro Tull)

Meanwhile back in the year one
When you belonged to no one
You didn´t stand a chance son
If your pants were undone

´Cause you were bread for humanity
And sold to society
One day you´ll wake in the present days
A million generations removed from expectation of
A being who you really want to be

Skating away
Skating away
Skating away
On the thin ice of a new day

So as you push off from the shore
Won´t you turn your head once more
And make your peace with ev´ry one
For those who choose to stay, will live just one more day
To do the things they should have done

And as you cross the wilderness
Aspinning in your emptiness you feel you have to pray
Looking for a sign that the universal mind
Has written you into the passion play

Skating away
Skating away
Skating away
On the thin ice of a new day

And as you cross the circle line
Well the ice wall creaks behind
You´re a rabbit on the run
And silver splinters fly in the corner of your eye
Shining in the setting sun

Well do you ever get the feeling
That the story´s too damn real and in the present tense
Or that ev´rybody´s on the stage
And it seems like you´re the only person sitting in the audience

Skating away
Skating away
Skating away

Hi June ~~ Jethro Tull is quite good
You sure have lots of music and love it so much. Your Thanksgiving all
looked wonderful and I am sure was enjoyed by you all. Thank you for your comments. We had a lovely day together. The three girls live in
Yarrawonga about 1 and a half hours
away. We are all about the same age, though I am the oldest. Take care,
Love, Merle.
