There were bright flashes the day you were born
and your mother’s hair was brown
All of the doctors pronounced you a dead man
and they told her what to prepare for

somewhere from you at the centre of earth
the science that made you awoke

and it said oooooh
oooooh
oooooh

the gods in the sky draped in cloth made of clover
amused by the cliffs of your plight
sent down a young goddess with hair black as night
she gave you a piece of her power

and once you were young and were gasping for air
but now you are strong as a mountain

and all things considered it’s quite coincidence
I am still here and so are you

the floor of the earth may decide to upturn us
and skies might be ready to strike
and you might decide overwhelmed with surprise
that there might be something on earth worth saving

let it be me
me
me

oxygen sometimes can lead you off course
and breathing is something to die for

and all things considered it’s quite coincidence
I am still here and so are you
