lyrics

I wonder if they'll ever find we're out here
The colors stretch as far as I can see
And I'm feeling like the lot of us will die here
But at least I know it's not all up to me
The hull is taking on all sorts of pressure
And at any moment it's all about to breach
So get your women and your children all out of here
Before there's no air left for them to breathe

I'll find a way to keep you safe
From everything that we have made
For today we'll hideaway
I'll keep the light on til we're safe

Captain, I've been thinking of our time here
How oxygen is all we really need
The deck is now our graveyard and we all fear
That death is coming sooner than we believe
So gather up your family and your belongings
The fire makes it hard for us to see
And if god herself had word in all that's happening
She'd say earth is where the human race should be

I'll find a way to keep you safe
From everything that we have made
For today we'll hideaway
I'll keep the light on til we're safe

Flying high at night, we found the light
It burned our eyes

I'll keep you safe
