Ice On The Wing

  • I am made of Sopwith Camel
    Sherman PT-17, sixty and cloudy, I go slow
    Compared to modernity I am a humming bee
    Sweater-weather and
    Hugs and drugs and movies

    But baby ice
    Is growing on the wing
    Baby ice is growing on the wing
    You rolled the dice but
    You didn?t know anything
    Underneath the oxide
    Underneath the oxide
    It?s all the same song

    I am made of no newspapers
    When the V-1 buzzing stopped
    Only prayers
    I am made of young curiosity, deluded piety
    Double-whiskey for the men
    Don?t talk to thy neighbour
    If they don?t take your same lord as saviour
    In a songless meeting house
    Proud to be the only ones
    Who get saved in the end
    From hugs and drugs and movies

    But baby ice
    Is growing on the wing
    Baby ice is growing on the wing
    You rolled the dice but
    You didn?t know anything

    What if I start now?
    Just like someone?s watching me
    Somebody?s watching me
    What if I start now?
    Just like someone?s watching me

    But baby ice
    Is growing on the wing
    Baby ice is growing on the wing
    Baby ice is growing on the wing
    Baby ice is growing on the wing
    Underneath the oxide
    Underneath the oxide
    Underneath the oxide
    It?s all the same
