Washed away all colours in Jesus Christ’s clothes
Found them down a tunnel where no-one ever goes
Ooooh Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oh (x2)
Singing an anthemic march come on take me away
Dipped my head in the river a Christian cliché
Ooooh Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oh (x2)

I hear gospel shatters and the boat man rattles
And the captain cackles, the old man counting shares
I hear the good news broken to the big man’s potion
To the lost sea all prayers be counted and saved.

Raised a voice, struck a chord on a wireless display
Streets of men they heard the call, now they’re on their way
Ooooh Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oh (x2)
Chanting with the sea at night, all the lads can play
A glimpse of land in a jar of hope slowly fades away
Ooooh Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oh (x2)

Chorus (repeats)

Blinded by the light above and under Twilight sky
They placed their lives in the hands of men surely doomed to die
Ooooh Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oh (x2)
Walking through this barren land and no even cared
Laughed along in the pursuit of bears Shackleton saved the day
Ooooh Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oh (x2)

Chorus (repeats)
