ice age lyrics – jorma kaukonen

ice age
well i heard the news just the other day;
now i feel there’s something i must say;
well the darkness comes too often;
this time next year i’ll build my coffin;
made out of lead so x-rays cannot see;
we gotta be free.
political men they burn their lives out talkin’;
we people of the earth just keep on walkin’;
well we don’t know what to say;
only live our lives as slaves;
all we can do is race on to the grave;
well we gotta get away.
well they’re much too old to care about the future;
they’re sewing up the past with shining sutures;
it’s immortality they crave;
their days are done so now they’re brave;
their lives will live in books for fools and slaves;
we gotta get away.
