"Aqualung" as written by and Ian Anderson....
Battle cries
We make the swift retreat
Paradise
It don't come cheap
Square up to fight
Like dynamite

The flight is young
We're getting deep without an aqualung
Our will is strong
We got to work at where we're goin wrong

Buttercup
I think we missed a turn
Back it up
You'd think I'd learn
Your gelignite
Sets truth alight

The flight is young
We're getting deep without an aqualung
Our time is long
We got to find where we're coming from

Square up to fight
Like dynamite

The flight is young
We're getting deep without an aqualung
Our will is strong
We've got to work at where we're going wrong

Light years from here
We're gonna burn up in the atmosphere
It's crystal clear
We're coming swinging on the chandelier

    General CommentIt's about a couple who're having relationship troubles and battling with each other. The end stanza I think indicates that they're going to make up eventually.

    General CommentPS: "You drill at night

    Sets truth alight"
