Philmont – Hello, Jack lyrics

First class, the movie is boring
I look out over the snowy peaks
There's a passenger missing and
The flight attendants are acting rather strange
A stewardess is telling us everything is fine
"Everybody stay calm everything is fine"
Now the rumors rise without delay
Sheer speculation
But I'd really like to know
What's going on inside the plane
Soaring into this winter night
While the captain keeps the lid tight
On what's really going down
Stowed away
A saboteur in the cargo bay
Carries a gun, he's lost his head
He's not afraid to go down
Snowstorm, bombarding the hilltops
We're caught in the mix-up
I look out into the fog
We're shrouded in a sheet, stuck shaking
And swerving off course
I hear the captain's voice
"Please stay in your seats
We're experiencing turbulence, stay in your seats"
Now the tension rises without delay
Sheer paranoia
But I'd really like to know
Who's in control of this plane
Failure in two of the engines
I propose we abandon ship
'Cause this one's going down"
But the flight crew
Reports to the cockpit
"Bad news, there's bulletholes in the parachutes
We're not getting out"
Chaos in the sky
A rocky landing on a mountainside
Now we're buried in the snow
Wake up, most others are still unconscious
And things look hopeless
But at least I'm still alive and not alone
It's daybreak
I watch as the others slowly wake
To a desperate situation, then I hear someone call out
"Look around us
There's silhouettes on the mountains
The choppers have finally found us
Now we're going home"
We're going home
