Liner Notes

Please click here for connecting post.

The following liner notes were originally (c)(p) 1971 by Chrysalis Records for the Jethro Tull album "Aqualung".

1} In the beginning Man created God; and in the image of Man created he him.

2} And Man gave unto God a multitude of names, that he might be Lord over all the earth when it was suited to him.

3} And on the seven millionth day Man rested and did lean heavily on his God and saw that it was good.

4} And Man formed Aqualung of the dust of the ground, and a host of others likened unto his kind.

5} And these lesser men Man did cast into the void. And some were burned; and some were put apart from their kind.

6} And Man became the God that he had created and with his miracles did rule over all the earth.

7} But as all these things did come to pass, the Spirit that did cause man to create his God lived on within all men: even within Aqualung.

8} And man saw it not.

9} But for Christ's sake he'd better start looking.

    1. None. This is what I wrote on a friend's Christmas present one year. Apparently his mother took great offense to the gentle mocking of religion.

Originality. Is. Good. Be original. Be thoughtful. But most importantly, make me think.
