thats the wrong one.
its by someone else...that one is a TOTALLY different story, but its still good.

the escaping song book is about how they dig up some big sphere in the antartic or somewhere cold, and they learn about this crazy civilization that used to be on the earth,and the story is a combo of the dude falling in love with the girl, and what happened on the last day of the civilization.


That sounds very similar to The Martian Chronicles

The Martian Chronicles was a horrible book.
i was really confused the whole time.
the moral of the story seemed more important than the story making sense.
my english teacher agreed with me when i did a book report on it.

Right there I almost imagined you as Virginia Woolf Confused

I'm off to bed. This tiredness is clearly getting rediculous.

There's two books called The Ice People, and I think the one the song is based off of is the one written by Rene Barjavel.

The lyrics fit the story:

"I felt the wind shifting back on us
Hold on we have to run"

-The two lovers ("Elea and Paikan, 'the ice people'" ) are running away because if they are captured they will lose each other

"But we can't escape there's no way
They'll call our names through the speakers"

-Their captor is calling their names through loud speakers making attempts to seize them

"When they find you, they'll retrieve you
Take you where sphered domes will freeze you"

-Like Paikan speaking to Elea (they are frozen in an egg-like stucture)

"These beautiful moments we shared together
All end now
They'll make me drink this potion; I'll sleep forever
Until I wake under the glacier ground "

-They surrender to their captor, Elea drinks the "universal serum", and she sleeps until she awakes 900,000 years later beneath the ice of what is now Antartica


But I've never read the book by Maggie Gee, so I could be wrong?


Thanks! That's why I kept asking. The one by Maggie Gee (according to what reviews I read) seemed to have nothing to do with the lyrics so I didn't think that was the right one.

The only similarity I can think of is how both civilizations destroyed themselves Question

I liked The Martian Chronicles.
