Good Awful Lyrics: Terra Titanic

The man that brought us Major Tom, Peter Schilling, also contributed a thoughtful song about the Titanic.

This appears to be a VHS rip of the original 1983 German version.

The original lyrics are in German and you can read them on Lyrics Mode.

Here is the English version in another fabulous Youtube non-video.

I highly suggest singing along with the lyrics provided below. Do it a few times. The English lyrics on Lyrics Mania

all was dark and the sky was still
a blinding mist closing in
unconcerned the young captain fills
his whiskey glass to the rim, to the rim

like a crystal cathedral afloat on the tide
comes a mountain of ice on the course to collide
while passengers sleep thinking God’s on their side

Terra Titanic you’re lost to the sea
S.O.S. if you can
straight ahead lies your destiny
soon you’ll sleep in the sand

face to face the white giant, boat
sweet dreams turn cold, time is up
music plays as the sirens blow
the last boat had better luck, better luck

the rats have the sense to abandon the ship
while the captain adjusts his tuxedo a bit
with his glass raised up as the ice water hits

Terra Titanic you’re lost to the sea
S.O.S. if you can
straight ahead lies your destiny
soon you’ll sleep in the sand

Terra Titanic you’re lost to the sea
S.O.S. if you can
straight ahead lies your destiny
soon you’ll sleep in the sand

I once read that the most likely way to catch a virus, trojan, worm, rootkit on your computer was from going to lyrics websites. I hope you didn’t click on any of those links.

He’s still performing this by the way
