First the thunder came,
Then the mountains fell,
The heavy sky grew darker,
The rising river swelled

The earthly hum grew silent,
Every land a lake,
But just before oblivion,
I shook myself awake

I put on my overcoat,
And I went out into the night,
I saw that the stars were still there,
Just before the light

Like a foal on its feet for the first time,
Drinking the whole world in
Awed by a terrible beauty,
I heard the whole world sing

Hey,
That's really something,
That's really something,
Oh, we're living now

Hey,
That's really something,
That's really something,
Yeah, we're living now

Born out of nothingness,
Born of the will to live,
Like someone said, "The love you take
Is equal to the love you give"

From up on the hills, the circus spreads a silk
Like an architect of time
Mapping out the dreams and peculiar schemes
Born out of man's own mind

So I put on my overcoat,
And I step out into the day,
I pour light on the savage beauty,
I hear the whole world say

Hey,
That's really something,
That's really something,
Oh, we're living now

Hey,
That's really something,
That's really something,
Yeah, we're living now

So I put on my overcoat,
And I slip out into the dawn,
All the morning stars, they sing together,
Happy just to be born

I put on my overcoat,
I'm here just to greet the day,
I'm drunk on all this stupid beauty,
I hear the whole world say

Hey,
That's really something,
That's really something,
Oh, we're living now

Hey,
That's really something,
That's really something,
Yeah, we're living now

Hey,
That's really something,
That's really something,
Oh, we're living now

Hey,
That's really something,
That's really something,
Yeah, we're living now

Hey,
That's really something,
Really something,
Oh, we're living now
