Captain Tractor - Pompeii lyrics

This time there's no turning back; this time there is no return
The bridges here are charred and black, and we all watched them burn
Just take what you can carry, no time to shed a tear
Find yourself another place; be sure it's far from here

I wander and time gets lost, decades start to pass
Just T's to dot and I's to cross, stepping on the gas
This place will always be: a monument, a shrine
In April morning in a distant year, just frozen here in time

Hey-y-y! Year's decay, here in this day
Hey-y-y! Just like Pompeii
Hey-y-y! Year's decay, here in this day
Hey-y-y! Just like Pompeii (x5)

To hit the checkpoint, guardsmen shout, to hear the children laugh
Just keep the geiger counter on, don't walk off the path
Keep your wits about you girl, and keep your head screwed on
Meet back in a thousand years, and then we'll have some fun

Hey-y-y! Year's decay, here in this day
Hey-y-y! Just like Pompeii
Hey-y-y! Year's decay, here in this day
Hey-y-y! Just like Pompeii (x5)

So my friend, let's get out of this place
Let's get out, let's get out, let's get out of this place
Let's get out (Hey!) let's get out, let's get out of this place
Let's get out (Hey!) let's get out, (Just like Pompeii)
Let's get out (Just like Pompeii), let's get out

Leave it all behind
