about

Hope amidst doom and desperation. Let me sing my sad song!

lyrics

On the flight to Olympus the voice of the captain comes on the PA of the plane. The stopover in Venus delayed due to reasons that no one can seem to explain and there's a murmur about something related to damage inflicted on one of the wings. Through the window the city is flashing, its heart lurches up and lands on the wing.

Grab a hold of the wing. If you raise your arms we can steer this plane. Grab a hold of the wing.

As the chaos increases the pilot's approached by a girl who is claiming to be the Messiah, she hands him a drawing; the scarecrow and tin man are hung from a tree. There's the voice of my love and it echoes throughout the whole city and into the plane: “Take my hand and we'll smash through the window, climb out to the wing, we can rescue this plane.”

Grab a hold of the wing. If you raise your arms we can steer this ship. Grab a hold of the sail.

Don't shatter my violin! This face I'm not covering!
