Ice Age

(Mike Vallely / Matthew Ryan)

I’m riding through the endless narrows
Through the snow drifts on the road
Out of the seething city
With winter in my soul

Trophies, accolades, possessions
That energy burns you up
When you’re measured by pain and motion
You’re sipping blood from a paper cup

It’s an ice age
It’s an ice age
It’s an ice age
I know

On the edge of self-destruction
Raise a glass to how far we’ve come
If we’re on fire and alive
The oceans know what’s done is done

It’s an ice age
It’s an ice age
It’s an ice age
You know

Never mind the failures
If it be our final bell
If this defeat becomes permanent
Smile and travel well

Through an ice age
An ice age
It’s an ice age
We know

There’s still music, art and poetry
They are my headlights in the freezing rain
And if you knew me only as you needed to
Just know, you only knew my name

In an ice age
It’s an ice age
It’s an ice age
We know

Never mind the failures
If it be our final bell
If this defeat becomes permanent
Smile and travel well

Through an ice age
An ice age
It’s an ice age
We know

It’s an ice age
It’s an ice age
It’s an ice age
I know
