Jethro Tull lyrics : "Tundra"

Short Arctic desert day
and someone left their snow-shoes in the tundra.
Look around every which way

but I can't see just where the footprints go.
Is it a casual disappearance?
Plucked from the middle atmosphere

like straw wind-blown.
No speck on the horizon
no simple message scrawled

upon the snow.
Unearthly visitation
someone left their snow-shoes in the tundra.

Hungry buzzard flier

circling round and round

rattling death's tambourine.

Have to run it down the cold wire

late insertion in tomorrow's lost and found.
Should I spread out searching?
But I'm a little thin upon the ground.

So I raise my lips to coax
the last drop of brandy from the bottle.

Rest my feet and contemplate

the mystery that's haunting

this Siberian space.

Show-shoes they bind me down

I'm just one more parasite of the surface layer.
I begin to get the feeling
I've been on this stage before

and I'm the only player.

One more Arctic desert day

another set of shoes out in the tundra snow.
I make my fade to white-out
and you can't see me where my footprints go.
