lyrics

I took a walk along the streets
Of the new Atlantis
The only person walking
And as the cars go gliding by
They stare out of their windows
Like it was something shocking

The new Atlantis
The underwater city of tomorrow

Locked away from warmth and sunlight
In the enormous compound
In the sub-arctic chill
The mothers wonder why
The children aren't speaking
Their faces strangely still

And oh my eyes have seen your buildings rise
Your palms stretching to the skies
What a rare and lovely view (my eyes have seen)
In the hour of your widest arms, your glory and grandeur
Before the waters come for you
They're rising too

You'll make a plan
To save the ones you can
And build your castles higher
Over fast-eroding sand

So many questions I could ask
Before your voices are lost to time
Did you see it coming?
You wage your battles on the body that supports you
But never fear
She'll take you back again
She'll take you in
