In Arcady, your life trips along
It's pure and simple as the shepherd's song
Seraphic pipes along the way in Arcady
In Arcady
Never saw I such a scene
Such maids upon such a molten green
They employ their holiday with dance and game
And things I may never name
In Arcady

You said he was your teacher
Taught you so true and so wise
But now you know more than your teacher
I see nothing but cool self-regard in your eyes
In Arcady

So you see how twisted it becomes
See how quickly twisted it becomes
When the cat gut binds my ankles to your bedstead
That ain't love, no that ain't love

Said he was your teacher
Taught you so true and so wise
Now you know more than your teacher
I see nothing but cool self-regard in your eyes

In Arcady, your life trips along
Pure and simple as the shepherd's song
Seraphic pipes along the way in Arcady

    General CommentWell I think its come from "Arcadia" as Pete & Carl used to say "Albion is the Ship, Arcadia the destination" Arcadia is basically your idealistic view of the world, "Its pure and simple as the shepards song"

    I think really he goes on the refer to Carl, as the teacher and how "twisted it becomes" could refer to their relationship; seems to be a contrast between the idealistic view Pete and Carl once held together and how now, their paths have become torn and Carl in Pete's view has been left behind "Now you know more than your teacher"

    General CommentI just think this song is like Albion. If Pete is describing how Albion is, he's describing how Arcady is here.

    Arcady is the world Pete made. That cigarette grows from trees and stuff like that. It's really nice because Pete is just telling us here that if we can't have a world that we want. We could just make one on our own. :)
