What do you do when your falling
You've got 30 degrees and you're stalling out?
And it's 24 miles to your beacon
There's a crack in the sky and the warning's out

Don't take that dive again
Push through that band of rain

Five miles out
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out.
You're Number 1, anticipating you

Climbing out
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
You're Number 1, anticipating you

Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!
Calling all stations!
This is Golf-Mike-Oscar-Victor-Juliet
IMC CU NIMB in great difficulty, over

The traffic controller is calling
Victor-Juliet, your identity
I have you lost in the violent storm
Communicate or squawk "Emergency"

Don't take that dive again
Push through that band of rain

Lost in static, 18
And the storm is closing in now
Automatic, 18
Got to push through! Trapped in living hell

Your a prisoner of the dark sky
The propeller blades are still
And the evil eye of the hurricane is
Coming in now for the kill

Our hope's with you
Rider in the blue
Welcomes waiting, we're anticipating
You'll be celebrating, when you're down and braking

Climbing out
Climbing, climbing
Five miles out
Climbing, climbing

Five miles out
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
Climbing, climbing

Five miles out
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
Climbing, climbing

Climbing out
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
Climbing, climbing

Five miles out
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
Climbing, climbing

Climbing out
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
Climbing, climbing

Climbing out.
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
