  1. Pink Pompeii

This is Pink Pompeii the song, not the band. Fun and light with a tropical feel, it tells the tale of a not-so-natural disaster.

Lyrics

we were all just sleeping in
on a sunday morning
the sky opened up and then
it came without a warning
i thought that it might've been
some freakish red tsunami
the sound it made just didn't lend
itself to being bomb-y
PINK POMPEII
don't know what happened til this day
now it's a PINK POMPEII
where all the children used to play
nobody knows
why they froze in rose
forever forever forever
i know that i would be dead
if i hadn't heard the screaming
next door, the neighbors, still in bed
were petrified, pink and gleaming
i took off running outta there
til i could run no further
how could the gods, without a care,
commit this senseless murder?
Lucky I’m alive, I’m so lucky I’m alive
And I’m lucky I’m alive, lucky I’m alive
PINK POMPEII
none of the history books will say
what made the PINK POMPEII
and took our families away
they struck a pose
and forever doze in rose
forever forever forever
now all that's left of the neighborhood
is the color of pepto bismol
Lifeless bodies where they stood
make life here kind of dismal
PINK POMPEII
don't know what happened til this day
now it's a PINK POMPEII
where all the children used to play
nobody knows
why they froze in rose
forever forever forever
