 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Get a good run at it
Whip the horse and rattle
The station of state a bit
A universe of battle

Every second a sun
Somewhere one dies
No heaven's heir apparent
There the first time
Well I know this feeling
I get it all the time
Every second a sun
Somewhere one dies

Time to get on with it
The prison and the shackles
Colonize you brick by brick
Leading by example

Sun up, sun down
Two hundred species die
Crawled off a cliff
There the first time
Well I know the reasons
I use them all the time
From sun up to sun down

I believe in the power of an ocean
A trillion miles bereaved
But there the first time
There the first time

Sun up, to sun down
There the first time
