Jethro tull aqualung

The lyrics convey a story of a homeless man named Aqualung. In verses 1 and 2, he is shown as a dirty tramp, who can't but evoke a sense of hopelessness and disgust, as not a single person in the world would ever help him. Aqualung is lone and sick, doomed to "bend to pick a dog-end" (British slang for a discarded cigarette butt). In verse 3, he sees a light of hope for compassion, arising in encounter of the very storyteller (Aqualung my friend, don't you start away uneasy). But still, in verse 4 the inevitable seems to happen, and a poor creature is "snatching <his> rattling last breaths". The indifference to grief is nevertheless reigning on earth, "and the flowers bloom like madness in the spring".
