In the 1970′s, Frederic Hoyle wrote a book entitled “Ice”, which proposed a possible mechanism for the triggering of ice ages. His work was years ahead of its time. This song was written when it became obvious that he was not far out. Possibly all a bit passé now, with global warming and all … however, chaos theory supports Hoyle’s work, and the possibility of another “cold spell” in the next 100 years is still on!


Do you believe the oceans will save the world
From being plunged into another deadly ice-age
When light relief of summer snow and winter rain
Will freeze the smiles of mortals racked with pain

And as we walk the ice is thick and strong
The blades pierce the surface as we sing along
And when the ice is thin we’ll never see
Just how close to destruction we have been

If diamond dust is thrust into the upper air
Your thesis states a recess will result
And when the waters cool the tears will freeze
And those exposed will fall to their knees

And when the Iceman comes to rearrange
The face of land and of sea and of man
If all you say is true we have no choice
Just one man, one vote, one voice

Ooh - but I remember you, it’s nice to see you all again
Ooh - are you happy now, aren’t you scared enough of men
Ooh - yes you know it all, you profess to tell us all of lies
Dream - dream of science friction, have you invented lies!
