Here Comes The Flood - Peter Gabriel
  When the night shows, the signals grow, on radios
  All the strange things, they come and go, as early warnings
  Stranded starfish have no place to hide
  Still waiting for the swollen Easter tide
  There's no point in direction
  We cannot even choose a side.

  I took the old track, the hollow shoulder, across the waters
  On the tall cliffs, they were getting older, sons and daughters
  The jaded underworld was riding high
  Waves of steel hurled metal at the sky
  And as the nail sunk in the cloud
  The rain was warm and soaked the crowd.

    Lord, here comes the flood
    We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood
    If again the seas are silent
    In any still alive
    It'll be those who gave their island to survive
    Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry.

  When the flood calls, you have no home, you have no walls
  In the thunder crash, you're a thousand minds, within a flash
  Don't be afraid to cry at what you see
  The actors gone, there's only you and me
  And if we break before the dawn
  They'll use up what we used to be.

    Lord, here comes the flood
    We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood
    If again the seas are silent
    In any still alive
    It'll be those who gave their island to survive
    Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry.
