When I was a young boy
I knew peace of mind
I'd sit down by the ocean,
And watch the seabirds flyin'
But as the years went by
And the men grew tired of the country life
We moved up to the city
To the ghettos and the police car sirens
And they're callin' out my name
Screamin' in their wretched pain
But I won't come back
Even if I live to be a thousand years
Even if I live to be a thousand years
'Cause I wanna be a survivor
And I'm gonna be a survivor
And I won't come back
Even if I live to be a thousand years
I've been walking
Along Golden Sands
Picked up the ocean
And let it run through my hands
And I had a dream
That my ship came through and we sailed away
We sailed across the sky
A million miles from the strife and pain
And they're callin' out my name
Tell 'em it's too damn late
'Cause I won't come back
Even if I live to be a thousand years
Even if I live to be a thousand years
And I wanna be a survivor
I'm gonna be a survivor
I see my ship
She's down there in the harbor
I hope she waits for me
To board her
'Cause I wanna be a survivor
And I'm gonna be a survivor
And I won't come back
Even if I have to be a thousand years
