Hooray, I awake from yesterday
Alive, but the war is here to stay
So my love, Catherina and me
Decide to take our last walk through the noise to the sea
Not to die but to be reborn
Away from lands so battered and torn

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 screaming pain
And the arctic stains from silver blue to bloody red
As our feet find the sand
And the sea is
Is straight ahead
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 coming with us today
And they also said it's impossible
For a man to live and breathe under water
Forever was their main complaint yeah
And they also threw this in my face
They said:
You know good and well it would be beyond the will of God
And the grace of the King
Grace of the King
Yeah yeah yeah

So my darling and I
Make love in the sand
To salute the last moment
Ever on dry land
Our machine, it has done its work, played its part well
Without a scratch on our bodies and we bid it farewell
Starfish and giant foams greet us with a smile
Before our heads go under we take a last look at the killing noise
Of the out of style
The out of style
Out of style

So down and down and down and down and down and down we go
Hurry my darling we mustn't be late for the show
Neptune champion games to an aqua world is so very 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
