Story

We are hurtling through space on a little blue rock. Out of control. Your control, at least. It's OK.

Lyrics

                 Living on the Sun

 

Dark is the day, where the dream shadows play

Jambalaya’s day is done

And all that was hope, now it swings from a rope

The passing tide was fun

Now, how did it happen ?

We had the action, we had it won

Day, day after day

There in your face, he stared and he shone

Now, now here we are boy

Alive in the stars

Here on the sun

 

Standing here parched, ‘neath the bridge rainbow’s arch

The glory that was the West

You turn to your neighbor, and say “Who's this saviour?"

Who lives in infinite jest

But, it’s not the same

We’ve not seen rain these last fourteen years

Now, at this late hour

See desert flowers bloom in your tears

Now , here we are boy

Alive in the stars

Here on the sun
