Krakatoa

Album: The Very Best of Saxon (1985)
  • To the east of Java back in eighteen eighty three
    Stood a peaceful island basking in the sea
    No one knew the danger lying deep beneath the earth
    That Mother Nature's victim would sooth the monsters ..?..

    Krakatoa
    The earth...was .. Sunda with a deadly roar
    When the dust had settled Krakatoa was no more

    With a scream of fury the power was released
    The biggest known explosion the world had ever seen
    The shockwaves traveled 'round the earth to smash the Richter scale
    The tidal wave that followed left death and desolation in it's trail

    Krakatoa
    The earth...was .... Sunda with a deadly roar
    When the dust had settled Krakatoa was no more

    Blasting chunks of magma into the stratosphere
    A thousand scarlet sunsets the land, a sea of fear
    To the east of Java basking in the sea
    The sign of Krakatoa is rising from the deep

    Krakatoa
    The earth.. was... Sunda with a deadly roar
    When the dust had settled Krakatoa was no more

    Krakatoa
    Krakatoa
