5am and he wakes up slow
Lifts himself up out of the Hudson
Stretching out he feels his hunger grow
Fixes his eyes on the city laid before him

You and I walk down a crowded street
Laughing at all the strange looking people
You and I on a daytrip just for fun
You and I – we never saw it coming

There are cars flying through the air
Sirens, explosions, dustclouds in the air

And there’s a wave approaching with a silent roar
A wave approaching with a violent roar
To you, to me, today

Now we’re hiding out in doorways
Avoiding all the debris
Broken cars and broken homes
Nothing’s where it used to be
Our whole life it just changed
It just changed in heartbeat.

And nobody knows which way is North anymore.

There are cars flying through the air
Sirens, explosions, dustclouds in the air

And there are people leaping from the higher floors
People leaping from the higher floors
To you, to me, today

Now we’re hiding out in doorways
We can hear the creature breathing
And then a miracle occurs
We hear its footsteps receding
And on this broken up island
There are only our hearts beating.

And nobody knows which way is up anymore
Which way to go
Which way is home.
