    Predefinito Jethro Tull - Old Aces Die Hard

    Light it is fading along the green belt
    As the millions weep for their children
    Sitting detached in the suburban-ness
    As politics brew in the cauldron.

    Dark ages, spilling no secrets from the old
    House of cards
    That stands immune as the great disease rages
    Through the pack stacked with jokers.
    Old aces die hard.

    And mother superior calls for the light
    To mark heaven's request for repentance.
    But the football crowds mutter and pray for the night,
    And march to their doom with acceptance.

    Dark ages, plant their last seed on the
    Withering land
    To grow in the dust of yesterday's images
    Underwritten by the pen of history's hand

    And the blue dawn cracks on the morn
    Of another day, ten thousand years away.
    And the seeds that were sown
    Into young men have grown.
    Fathers to their youngest son to place
    In the camp fire's sight, dead as the night
    That he can't quite recall.
    He can't quite recall.

    When he dreams in his head with the stones
    In his bed and the shouts of the sun as it falls.
    And the women wake and they laugh
    As they shake
    Their frosty sleep from their hair,
    And put that same old kettle on and sing that
    Same old pagan song.



    Dark ages, history karma is rattling its chains.
    Dark ages, civilisation's menstrual pains.

    The bone's in the china, the flat's in the fire,
    There's no turkey left on the table.
    The commuters return on the six o'clock flyer.
    Brings no bale of straw for the stable.

    Dark ages, spilling no secrets from the old
    House of cards
    That stands immune as the great disease rages
    Through the pack stacked with jokers.
    Old aces die hard.

    Dark ages, spilling no secrets from the old
    House of cards
    That stands immune as the great disease rages
    Through the pack stacked with jokers.
    Old aces die hard.
