Sad songs and lullabies
Are singing the world goodnight
Sleep tight, little world

Sirens on Christmas Day
Bad luck is here to stay
I'm watching the world go by

I'm counting out the seconds
Between thunder and lightning
The rain is nature's copper wire
It's wrapped around my feet
And I'm standing, in a field
The widest open field

Pack my bags and I am on my way
One last look at how things used to be
I'll burn a fire that you can see
You'll swim ashore and rescue me
We'll build a ship and sail to sea
And start our very own country

I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!

I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!

I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!

I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!

I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!

I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!

I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!

I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!
I'm taking Abalonia!

    Abalonia was a WWII ship that was purchased in the 60s by a group of people who aimed to wreck the ship off the west coast by San Diego in hopes of founding their own country. Unfortunatly, strong waves moved the ship unexpectedly, and it sank to the bottom.
