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
A million generations removed from expectations
Of being who you really want to be

Skating away, skating away, skating away
On the thin ice of the new day, ay

So as you push off from the shore, won't you turn your head once more
And make your peace with everyone
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 a spinning in your emptiness
You feel you have to pray
Looking for a sign that the universal minds
Has written you into the passion play

Skating away, skating away, skating away
On the thin ice of the new day, ay

And as you cross the circle line, well, the ice wall creaks behind
You're a rabbit on the run
And the 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 everybody's on the stage and it seems like you're the only
Person sitting in the audience

Skating away, skating away, skating away
On the thin ice of the new day, ay
Skating away, skating away, skating away
