"Man Overboard" as written by and Mat Mitchall Carina Dianne Round....
Blood sky every mornin'
Shoulda seen the warnin'

Captain to the seamen
Man your battle stations

Poseidon's on a mission
'Bout to turn it up to eleven

Blood sky every mornin (all hands on all hands on deck)
Shoulda seen the warnin (woulda, coulda, shoulda, shoulda)

Poseidon's on a mission (brace yourself, brace yourself)
'Bout to turn it up to 11 (brace yourself, brace yourself for 12)

Captain to the seamen (come the gales, mind the sails)
Assume impact positions (all hands on all hands on deck)

Toss the extras over (Women n children women n children first)
Bout to take on water (Bail, sailor, bail bail bail)

Poseidon's on a mission (brace yourself, brace yourself)
'Bout to turn it up to 11 (brace yourself, brace yourself for 12)

    General CommentI see this song about a shipwreck in a storm as a metaphor for a collapse of civilization whether by cataclysm or self destruction.

    Man(kind) overboard.
