spiral lyrics – jethro tull

kilometers from nowhere on a scented avenue –
lined with poppy girls.
i didn’t stop, stop to say h*llo.
curious vendors – waving bric-a-brac –
looked me over –
thought it best, best that i should go.

don’t wake me… i’m falling.
slow spiral into morning.
who’s out there? can’t hear you.
ears covered – early warning.
alarm bells ringing.
time to make my peace with the dreary day.

i waited tables – i was tipped in roubles.
wine to water
was the best that i could do.
wild office parties split the silence.
loaves and fishes at an empty table laid for two.

down the spiral, spinning madly.
gathering momentum
on a disneyesque adventure ride.
i fly in colours from richer palettes.
famous artists running scared as worlds collide.
