Europe – The Final Countdown lyrics

We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell?

I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground (leaving ground)
Will things ever be the same again?
It's the final countdown.

The final countdown.

Oh, We're heading for Venus (Venus)
And still we stand tall
Cause maybe they've seen us
And welcome us all, yeah
With so many light years to go
And things to be found (to be found)
I'm sure that we all miss her so
It's the final countdown.

The final countdown.

The final countdown (final countdown).

Oh... Oh

The final countdown.

Oh... Oh

It's the final countdown.

The final countdown.

The final countdown. (final countdown)

It's the final countdown
We're leaving together
The final countdown
We all miss her so
It's the final countdown (final countdown)
Oh, it's the final countdown.

    I see a lot of metaphors tied to actual events surrounding the times during which this song was written. Also, one must take into consideration the possibility of coded messages while this song was written by a possibly "high" artist.
    The meaning behind this song is a mystery to all but the artists involved with its creation, though I sense triumph and sadness at leaving someone, something or a shared event to memory.
