    When Thick as a Brick came out, I sat down next to the turntable and copied down all the lyrics. Still know them by heart, it's like poetry, man.

    Now let's have a cup of tea, and start a new day...

    Skating away on the thin ice of the New Day.

    And as you cross the circle line, 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 on the thin ice of the New Day.

    In dishonor of Monday, May 26, Memorial Day, the beginning of the summer invasion and destruction that makes Sandy look like a walk in the park, I present this for your listening displeasure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU8pTqVRTxQ

    We have duck season, deer season, rabbit season, and then there's benny season... so why can't we shoot them?

    I heard it the week it came out at a friends house. Sounded like a song for an ex, then for another generation, then it sort of tails off into intrinsic profund absurdities. But like a goulash, there's something for everyone.
