The countdown has just begun
All aboard the chosen one

Say goodbye to all your friends
All beginnings must have ends

One by one
We march onto the shores

Breath the air
Before it disappears
Breath the air
Before it disappears

The countdown has just begun
Moving out beyond the sun
Now we're leaving it all behind
We are leaving it all behind
Torch the earth, destroy the sky

Two by two
We walked onto the ark

Breath the air
Before it disappears
Breath the air
Before it disappears
Before it disappears

Breath the air
Breath the air
Breath the air
Breath the air
Until it disappears
Until it disappears

Now's the time to make amends
All beginnings must have ends

    General CommentSuch a good song, one of JSB's best. Obviously about the end of the world, since the entire Weight Of The World album seems to have an apocalyptic feel to it. Seems to kind of be commentary on the current state of the world as well.
