Lyrics:

 

Uh oh uh oh

In the cities there is talk of rain and of fire.

It was on the air today

It almost filled me with desire.

All our skies are grey

They say the dreamers line the streets.

Looking out from hollow houses, rivers running at their feet.

 

Uh oh, uh oh

There's panic in the world

Uh oh, uh oh

There's panic in the world

 

My love and I we escaped we left no trace

For they had raped both body and soul.

The taste was much too hard to swallow

We ran naked through the cold.

 

Above our heads in fiery red

The clouds they bled like open wounds across the sky

The wings of many nations

Falling, burning, turning...

Trying oh, so hard to die.

 

Uh oh, uh oh

There's panic in the world

Uh oh, uh oh

There's panic in the world

 

We'll find an island

We'll burn the maps

We'll lock our hearts and throw the keys into the sea.

Let's be survivors

They'll never find us

It's all behind us

I know a place they've never been.

 

In new horizons

In golden swarms

In comes tomorrow

It's thunderstorms over the hill.

The future falls beyond these walls, destiny calling

Like the dawn, a sweeter thrill.

 

Uh oh, uh oh

There's panic in the world

Uh oh, uh oh

There's panic in the world

 

Panic in the world...
