Kongos – Escape lyrics

Every few thousand years
Come true man's greatest fears
All the living things
Mother nature brings - to tears

When the bombs are bursting in the air
And the rockets are making that red glare
I'm heading down
Down to that good hope town - where the weather's fair

So why don't you come away
With me my love
We'll do what it takes
I'll keep you safe

Why don't you stay by me
And when the time comes
We'll escape

When the big one finally hit's la
When Yellowstone has it's day
We're heading to the southern tip
On a plane or on a ship
We'll do what it takes - we'll find a way

And if that cloud forms up above
No sign anywhere of a dove
There'll be no reason left to stay
We'll try and live another day
In a place where there's still love
