my lyricsbox
Heaven sent, hell bent
Over the mountain tops we go
Just like all the other GI Joes
EE-AY-EE-AY adios!

Arabia, Arabia, Arabia, Arabia (repeating)

Six o'clock in the morning
And I'm the last person in this plane still awake
You know I can almost smell
The blood washing 'gainst the shores
Of this land that can't forget its past
Oh, the wind that carries this plane
Is the wind of change
Heaven sent and hell bent
Over the mountain tops we go
Just like all the other GI Joes
EE-AY-EE-AY adios!

Across the beaches and cranes
Rivers and trains
All the money I've made
Bodies I've maimed
Time was when I seemed to know
Just like any other GI Joe
Should I cry like a baby
Die like a man
While all the planet's little wars
Start joining hands
Oh, what a heaven -- what a hell
You know there's nothing could be done in this whole wide world

This is your captain calling
With an urgent warning
We're above the Gulf of Arabia
Our altitude is falling
And I can't hold her up
There's no time for thinking
All hands on deck
This bird is sinking

Arabia, Arabia (repeating)

I don't know what's wrong or right
I'm just a regular guy
With bottled up insides
I ain't ever been to church
Or believed in Jesus Christ
But I'm praying that God's with you
When you die

This is your captain calling
With an urgent warning
We're above the Gulf of Arabia
Our altitude is falling
And I can't hold her up
There's no time for thinking
All hands on deck
This bird is sinking

This is your captain calling
With an urgent warning
We're above the Gulf of Arabia
Our altitude is falling
And I can't hold her up
There's no time for thinking
All hands on deck
This bird is sinking
Is sinking, is sinking (repeating)
This song is from the album "Infected" and "45 RPM: The Singles of The The".
