Lyrics
Did you ever hover in the distance?
Did you ever swoop down from the sky
To the bright green rocks
All draped with seaweed
And the deep blue ocean rolling by?

Maybe I will find today
Maybe I will lose tomorrow
Gonna rock on to the oceanside

Did you ever see into the future?
See the big red sun that won't go down?
And the giant moths upon the cliffside
In the deep red scar that was our town?

Maybe I will find today
Maybe I will lose tomorrow
Gonna rock on to the oceanside

Baby, we're the king
And queen of nothing
Everybody glows and then they're numb
We can make a moment last forever
Gaze across the ocean to the sun

Maybe I will find today
Maybe I will lose tomorrow
Gonna rock on to the oceanside
Gonna rock on to the oceanside
Gonna rock on to the oceanside
