    Hurray I awake from yesterday
    Alive but the war is here to stay
    So my love catherina and me
    Decide to take our last walk thru the noise to the sea
    Not to die but to be reborn
    Away from the lands so battred and torn
    Forever forever

    Oh say can you see it's really such a mess
    Every inch of earth is a fighting nest
    Giant pencil and lipstick-tube shaped things
    Continue to rain and cause screamin' pain
    And the arctic stains from silver blue to bloody red
    As our feet find the sand
    And the sea is straight ahad
    Straight up ahead

    Well it's too bad that our friends can't be with us today
    Well it's too bad
    The machine that we built
    Would never save us that's what they say
    That's why they ain't comin' with us today
    And they also said it's impossible
    For a man to live and breathe undrerwater
    Forever was a main complaint
    Yeah and they also threw this in my face they said
    Anyway you know good and well
    It would be beyond the will of god
    And the grace of the king
    Grace of the king


    So my darling and I make love in the sand
    To salute the last moment ever on dry land
    Our machine it has done it's work played it's part well
    Without a scratch on our body when we bid it farewell
    Starfish and giant foams greet us with a smile
    Before our heads go under we take our last look at the killing noise
    Of the out of style
    The out of style out of style oh yeah

    So down and down and down and down we go
    Hurry my darlin' we mustn't be late
    For the show
    Neptune champion games to an aqua world is so my dear
    Right this way smiles a mermaid
    I can hear atlantis full of cheer
    Atlantis full of cheer
    I can hear atlantis full of cheer
    Oh yeah
