The ocean floor has open arms for wax wings

I wouldn't care if we never breathe again
Because I will not always leave you here

Weather won't end while the earth
Is in motion thunder and lightning
In the middle of the night
Tornado winds are imminent
They couldn't take me alive
And I will not always love you.
