I felt the wind shifting back on us.
Hold on. We have to run,

but we can't escape. There's no way.
They'll call our names through the speakers.

When they find you they'll retrieve you,
take you where sphered domes will freeze you,

but we can't esape. There's no way.
They'll call our names through the speakers.

Men would die at sea for you, but all I want is you.
Men would live and die for you, but all I want is you, you.

These beautiful moments we've shared together all end now.
They'll make me drink this potion. I'll sleep forever,
until I wake under the glacier ground,
the ground, the ground, oh yeah.

    General CommentI don't know who wrote it, but I think there are two books called The Ice People, and the one Stacy read is by a guy with a foreign-sounding name. In case you see a book called The Ice People and want to if it's the right one.

    General Commentthis is a little late but...

    the book is called the ice people and it's by french author rene barjavel. i found my own (used, of course) copy on amazon and i suggest anyone who wants to discover the true meaning of this song do the same.

    General Commentit's not on an album, they've only played it live. I think there's a live recording on an EP that's only available on iTunes--I think it might be the Golly Sandra EP.

    here are two pretty good live videos if you haven't heard it:
