Skating Away On The Thin Ice Of The New Day

Lyrics

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 bred for humanity and sold to society
One day you'll wake up in the Present Day

Hey Steve B, I have the exact same memory from 1974! Love this song, love the album, love the band. I remember opening this up under the tree Christmas morning, 1974.
Brilliant song. I often feel like everybody's on the stage and I'm the only person sitting in the audience.
Catchy. Never heard this on before. Thansk, Pandora!

Classic Tull....
Love this song, love the album, love the band. I remember opening this up under the tree Christmas morning, 1974.
Years ago, no cares, sitting on a hill, stoned.
seems to me that this is my life ..
