Drift away, just drift away
Sometimes I wish, I could just drift away

They say there's gonna be a river of blood
It's apocalypse now
So, we're prefer the flood
The ice is gonna melt, the water gonna rise
And we'll all go to hell
So, they're keepin' us advised
While the dollar falls down
The yen gonna climb
It's a moral decline
And I'm losing my mind

I think I'll just drift away
To that island of my dreams
Live in total fantasy
Close my eyes and drift away

Back in the real world
There's tension everywhere
And the smell of fear
Keeps hanging around and polluting the air
The man on the news is going over the top
Now, he'll say anything so his show don't flop
Wall Street's down, so what
And according to astute market analysis
The world's gonna stop
They shout the story to the nation
Pass on the panic to the population
This is the end of civilization
It's all over now

Meanwhile, I just drift away
To my island in the sun
Imaginary paradise, perfection
Sometimes I wish I could just drift away
Drift away
Drift away
Drift away

Now, all the politicians are running out of hope
They've burned all their bridges
Now, they just can't cope
And who do we blame now we're all going broke?
It's that man over there
Who's hanging from a rope
Newsmen winding up the nation
A little bad news helps circulation
Pass on the panic to the population
It's all over, it's all over
It's all over, now

Times like this, I just drift away
To my tropical fantasy
Living on coconuts growing on the trees
Sometimes, I wish I could just drift away
Drift away
Drift away
Drift away
It's apocalypse, now
Drift away
The rivers of blood
Drift away
And the man on the news is going over the top

Sometimes, I just drift away
To my island in the sun
Imaginary paradise, perfection
Sometimes, I wish I could just drift away
Drift away
Drift away

Drift away
Drift away
Drift away
Drift away
