Karine Polwart – Skater Of The Surface lyrics

Skater of the surface
Where the ice is thin
Without plan or point or purpose
You just spin and spin and spin and spin

Skater of the surface
You never, never cross the line
And if it's true that ignorance is bliss
Then you must be laughing all the time

You see what's before your eyes
And there's no lies and no disguise
A riptide's gonna pull you under

Skater of the surface
You have nothing, nothing to say
Without plan or point or purpose
You're just spinning your life away
