Islands - Volcanoes

[My name is Oscar
I want to introduce myself
I was killed in 1936 by my brother
I'm a demon and I want you to know
That the world is going to end in 2007...etc.]

In trouble with the dogs
Yapping like the trogs on that tape
Getting stepped on like a baby
Maybe slept too long
Is that so wrong?

So at sunrise we blew dawn
By lunch the storm had gone away
I didn't swim
But I watched the waves
While others stayed
Under for over an hour
While lovers hovered around my towel

We washed our mouths at the riverbed
When we noticed something glowing
And it was growing
Things are going to change
A hard rain falls, made of magma
Melts Alaska
And in icy Argentine they say now I've seen it all

Who knew? Volcanoes!

In trouble with the Gods
We did it our way, misbehaved
Where the sun shone, now it's gone
They've been waiting for so long
Now it's on
And we thought we should do ourselves in
Funny how things work out in the end

I never learned to swim
Now I'm wasted, I'm too old
Just hold on for as long as you can
I'm so afraid to die


We washed our mouths at the riverbed
When we noticed something glowing
It was growing
Things are going to change
Hot rainfalls made of magma
Melts Alaska
And in icy Argentine they say now I've seen it all

Who knew? Volcanoes!

The frogs, the frogs got it first
And the birds all knew it too
The worst was the worst smell on earth
Silver in snow
Silver in snow

Don't breathe
Don't breathe
Don't breathe
Don't breathe

Then we washed our mouths at the riverbed
When we noticed something glowing
And it was growing
Things are going to change, yeah
A hard rain falls, made of magma
Melts Alaska
And in icy Argentine they say
Oh, under a volcano!

Who knew? Volcanoes!

Who knew? Volcanoes!
