"Rope Ladder to the Moon" as written by and Jack/brown Bruce....
You asked me to a party
To a house just by the moon
You gave me silver loving
The end was all too soon

You asked me to the theater
In a place quite near the sun
You gave me golden sunbeams
Your act was all in fun

Rope ladder, rope ladder
Rope ladder to the moon!

You asked me to a meeting
In a cottage in the snow
You gave me central heating
I can't forget the glow

You asked me to a weekend
Down by the stormy sea
You took me to a ceremony
And the sacrifice was me!

You asked me to a storm cloud
Up near the rainbow's end
Then you threw away the ladder
And gave me to your friend

You took me to a prison
And you said its chief was me
Then you locked me deep inside you
And thew away the key

Rope ladder, rope ladder
Rope ladder to the moon!

    General CommentThis track, like many Cream songs, was written by Jack's friend Pete Brown. To me, it's all about how nothing ever turns out to be all it's cracked up to be. They promise you mountains and deliver mole hills. The car commercial always shows you one vehicle burning up miles of scenic highway on a beautiful day... but after you buy the car you sit in bumper-to-bumper rush hour traffic on a roadway filled with smog trying to get to work on time so you can pay for it! It's about deals that always fall through. It's about pie in the sky fantasies that come crashing down. It's a reality check. It's a Rope Ladder to the Moon!
