Freezing Steel

I’ve flown the house of freezing, the house of freezing steel
And though my body’s back I know it can’t be real
‘Cause I’ve been on that house without a guiding wheel
The house of freezing steel
Oh! Where’s it going? Picked me up at 7
When my eyes were weak from the light of the morning
Oh sister won’t you tell me what a man might want to know
This madness is fine, yes, if you’re mad at the time

Back on the house of freezing, the house of freezing steel
They tied my body up; I’m forced to eat my meal
A cold plate of lamb – and cold potatoes too!
Now what’s a soul to do?
Oh, Lord above! Brother won’t you tell me
Is this a Eucharistic dove?
‘Cause I’ve been waiting for the right one to appear
But I’ve seen it in your face, and baby this ain’t the place

Up on the house of freezing, the house of freezing steel
I made my mind up then, to get me to the wheel
I made the cabin door, the pilot turned around
He said, “We’re Venus bound!”
“Oh please take me home,
After all I’m only human and the Earth is where I belong.”
I must have looked pitiful to this freak without a face
‘Cause as he touched my head I saw myself back in bed

I’ve flown the house of freezing, the house of freezing steel
And though my body’s back I know it can’t be real
‘Cause I’ve been on that house without a guiding wheel
The house of freezing steel
