Will Stratton – Skating On The Glass lyrics
They took you by surprise, the ways that it had changed
Right behind your eyes, like somehow you'd been framed
"That's the new plateau" it said
"That's how you learn to see ahead"
You had read the signs when you were just a boy

When you'd get confused by momentary joy
As beautiful as it could be, it took away your will to see ahead
Skating on the glass like it was strong, impatient to be proven wrong
Impatient to be where you're not
And where you get you ask what you've got
What you've got

You'd bend the world to your will
Or you would learn to be
A bearing in a wheel in a dignified machine
Now the former is a joke
And the latter is a koan
And somewhere in between is where you are
Where you left and where you're going
