lyrics

VOLCANO STORY

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PLANNING
ALL YEAR LONG THEIR TEN DAYS OFF THEIR VACATION,
WHICH THEY ONLY TAKE ONCE EVERY YEAR.
NOW SITTING ALL SWEATY IN THE AIRPORT WAITING ROOM –
GOLDEN HOT SAND EXISTS ONLY IN THE BROCHURE.

THE VOLCANO ERUPTED UNEXPECTEDLY,
CONTRARY TO ALL THE DIAGRAMS AND TIME TABLES –
NOT A SINGLE CLIMATOLOGIST PREDICTED A SCENARIO LIKE THIS.

BEFORE IT REACHED THE AIRPORT,
THE AIRPLANE WAS CAUGHT UP
IN THE BLACK CLOUD.
WHEN ASHES ARE DRAWN INTO THE HOT ENGINE,
THEY BECOME GLASS:
ASHES, AEROPLANES,
ASHES, AEROPLANES,
ASHES, AEROPLANES...

YOUNG MAN FROM THE VOLCANO COUPLE

II.

I stayed over for a couple of days,
Until the panic and the ashes diminished.
Until airport paralysis came to an end.
My friend here introduced me to his sister:
– We are together!...
– We are together!...
