"If We Are Going Out, Let's Go Out In Style" as written by and Ryan Donald/hackenson Zimmerman....
Let's save the women, but let's save the children first
Let's act like real men for once in our lives
We're going down, straight to the ocean floor
To join the rest who have gone on before
Don't be scared...

Captain,
Did you feel the water rise?
Did you feel the water rise?
It's all around you now
(Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going when you die?)

Captain,
Did you feel the water rise?
Did you feel the water rise?
It's all around you now
(Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going when you die?)

Don't forget to say goodbye
Don't forget to say goodbye
Don't forget to say goodbye
Don't forget to say goodbye
Don't forget, don't forget

Don't forget to say goodbye
To the ones that served you well
Don't forget to say goodbye
Don't forget, don't forget
And don't be scared...

Do you know where you're going?

Captain,
Did you feel the water rise?
Did you feel the water rise?
It's all around you now

Captain,
Did you feel the water rise?
Did you feel the water rise?
It's all around you now
(Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going when you die?)

Gasping for air
Gasping for air
Gasping for air
Gasping for air

Gasping for air
Gasping for air
Don't forget to say goodbye
Don't forget to say goodbye

Sunshine hides in the sky
We're all just sinking, waiting to die
Sunshine hides from the sky
We're all just sinking, waiting to die

Captain,
Don't you cry
It was an honour to serve you
It's just our time to die
(Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going when you die?)

Captain,
Don't you cry
It was an honour to serve you
It's just our time to die
(Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you're going when you die?)

Die...

    General Commentthey said they wrote several songs after movies (including blue morning) so i think this song is about titanic
    but also dealing with the fact that your going to die, big catastrophe or not
    "dont you cry... its just our time to die"
    "dont be scared"

    General Commentit's a great song, but it sort of scares me.. "do you know where you're going when you die?"
    it's that specific part that scares the crap outta me, because nobody knows. it makes my stomach flip a couple thousand times.

    General Commentmeee123, yeah I agree this really does sound like it's about the Titanic. The first verse gives it away easily.

    General CommentDefinitely my favorite Greeley song. I love how creepy Ryan's voice sounds when he says, "Do you know where you're going?"

    General CommentThis song is a perfect example of why i love this album:Greeley seems to be able to take things that normally don't work in this genre and actually pull it off well! they are so strangly good at doing what shouldn't be expected to work.

    The song, Yea im seeing a huge titanic reference.
