      About "Thrasher"

      Lyrics for Neil Young - "Thrasher"

      They were hiding behind hay bales,
      They were planting in the full moon
      They had given all they had for something new
      But the light of day was on them,
      They could see the thrashers coming
      And the water shone like diamonds in the dew.

      And I was just getting up, hit the road before it's light
      Trying to catch an hour on the sun
      When I saw those thrashers rolling by,
      Looking more than two lanes wide
      I was feelin' like my day had just begun.

      Where the eagle glides ascending
      There's an ancient river bending
      Down the timeless gorge of changes
      Where sleeplessness awaits
      I searched out my companions,
      Who were lost in crystal canyons
      When the aimless blade of science
      Slashed the pearly gates.

      It was then I knew I'd had enough,
      Burned my credit card for fuel
      Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
      With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
      And my suitcase in my hand
      How I lost my friends I still don't understand.

      They had the best selection,
      They were poisoned with protection
      There was nothing that they needed,
      Nothing left to find
      They were lost in rock formations
      Or became park bench mutations
      On the sidewalks and in the stations
      They were waiting, waiting.

      So I got bored and left them there,
      They were just dead weight to me
      Better down the road without that load
      Brings back the time when I was eight or nine
      I was watchin' my mama's T.V.,
      It was that great Grand Canyon rescue episode.

      Where the vulture glides descending
      On an asphalt highway bending
      Through libraries and museums, galaxies and stars
      Down the windy halls of friendship
      To the rose clipped by the bullwhip
      The motel of lost companions
      Waits with heated pool and bar.

      But me I'm not stopping there,
      Got my own row left to hoe
      Just another line in the field of time
      When the thrashers comes, I'll be stuck in the sun
      Like the dinosaurs in shrines
      But I'll know the time has come
      To give what's mine.
