"Till the Ocean Takes Us All" as written by and Felix Riebl Henry James Angus....
I love you like oil
Coming down hot
Need you so fast
Need you so right away
Like a road train
I need you babe
Let's burn it all away
But I love you like water
You give me ardor
It's getting hotter
Believe me when I say
That like a spring rain
I need you babe
But nothing lasts forever after all
I'll love you till the ocean takes us all

This is the story of two lovers like twins
They would do lovers things, blame original sin
Look into their eyes only for the meaning of the hour
As if there only everything existed in their power
Lo and behold they drifted on a stream
Humming, how does it go? Oh: 'life is but a dream'
Well the stream became a river and the river started to tow
They, they didn't notice at all

I love you like oil
Coming down hot
Need you so fast
Need you so right away
Like a road train
I need you babe
But nothing lasts forever after all
I'll love you till the ocean takes us all

And on this black day the people shouted from the shore
Screaming 'Stop gazing and swim to save us all!'
But the twins they didn't hear at all they whispered nothings
Down the waterfall
And for what? Why did love become the void?
When the ones we love are the ones we would destroy
Have you heard about the phrase says 'Ignorance is bliss'?
Well, what bliss could lead to this?

But I need you like water
You give me ardor
It's getting hotter
Believe me when I say
That like a spring rain
I need you babe
But nothing lasts forever after all
I'll love you till the ocean takes us all

I love you like oil
Coming down hot
Need you so fast
Need you so right away
Like a road train
I need you babe
Let's burn it all away
But I love you like water
You give me ardor
It's getting hotter
Believe me when I say
That like a spring rain
I need you babe
But nothing lasts forever after all
I'll love you till the ocean takes us all

    General CommentI love this song, its one of my faves from the album ^-^ i think the line "I'll love you till the ocean takes us all" is just so sweet and a really original way of saying "I'll love you forever"

    Lyric CorrectionAs someone quite familiar with the Australian accent, I noticed a couple easy-to-make misinterpretations:

    it should be "coming down hard" not "coming down hot"
    and "you give me order / it's getting harder" instead of "you give me ardor / it's getting hotter"

    General CommentIt strikes me that this song is about the ruinment of the planet by society.

    The two lovers could be big oil, commercialism or various governments.
    I mean, "I love you like oil" isn't very romantic and implies a love like that of money more than anything else.

    "Look into their eyes only for the meaning of the hour"
    The lovers are not considering how their actions now could affect the future - much like how nobody really imagined how the industrial revolution and what came from it could leave the world in such a state.

    "As if there only everything existed in their power"
    Believing that controlling markets is all that's needed to have power in the world. But of course nature doesn't care about money.

    And the people shouting from the shore are those who can see the damage being done and desperately try to rally the lovers to reverse and head back to safe waters. But the lovers don't hear because they're so far away now... or they don't listen... and so the waterfall takes them, and then there's no turning back.

    Well that's the way I read it.
