From the first to stand
On the fields of Waterloo
Through the two world wars
And landing on the moon
The search to find forgiveness
And to bury all my shame
Got to let this burden go
Got to shoulder all the blame

One day
I will lie down
And rest here forever
Till then my heart beats
Heart beats

I'm here to stay
Till the Martians land on London Town
Won't fade away
Till the science world takes cancer down
I'm here to stay
Till they synthesise the ozone layer
Won't fade away
Going to hold out for an answer to my prayers

They fall
At the hands of dark corruption
From saintly deeds
To poisonous intentions
Living with remorse
On Purgatory Road
Keeping me alive
Watch the evil grow

One day
I will lie down
And sleep here

I'm here to stay
Till the Martians land on London Town
Won't fade away
Till the science world takes cancer down
I'm here to stay
Till they synthesise the ozone layer
Won't fade away
Going to hold out for an answer to my prayers

I'm here to stay (I'm here to stay)
Till the Martians land on London Town
Won't fade away (Won't fade away)
Till the science world takes cancer down
I'm here to stay (I'm here to stay)
Till they synthesise the ozone layer
Won't fade away (Won't fade away)
Going to follow all my prayers

I'm here to stay (I'm here to stay)
Till humans walk the ocean floor
Won't fade away (Won't fade away)
Till man can find an end to war
I'm here to stay (I'm here to stay)
Till the polar caps freeze up again
Won't fade away (Won't fade away)
Going to hold out for an answer to my prayers
