You come sail, with this air for little bit, if you will
There black sails knifing through the pitchblende night
Away from the radioactive landmass madness
From the silver-suited people searching out
Uncontaminated food and water on the shores
No glowing metal on our ship
Only free happy crazy people naked in the Universe
Go ride the music

If you smile at me
You know I will understand
Cause that is something everybody
Everywhere does in the same language

Well I can see by your coat my friend
That you're from the other side
There's just one thing I got to know
Tell me please who won, who won?

You must try some of my purple berries
I been eating them for six or seven weeks now
Haven't got sick once
Probably keep us both alive
Probably keep us both alive
Probably keep us both alive

Wooden ships on the water very free and easy
Easy you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline leave us be
Oh so very free and easy

Sail away where the mornin' sun goes high
Sail away where the wind blows sweet and young birds fly
Take a sister by her hand
Lead her far from this foreign land, yeah

Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cry
Stare as all your human feelings die
We are leavin', you don't need us
You don't need us here anymore, you don't need us

Go and take a sister by her hand
Lead her far from this foreign land
Somewhere where we might laugh again
We are leavin', you don't need us

Oh sail away, oh just sail away, oh but sail away
Sailing ships on the water very free and easy
Easy you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline leave us be
Very free and gone

No, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Go ride the music
Go ride the music
Go ride the music
Go ride the music
