the lyrics

Fare thee well
May the Lord who watches all
Watch over thee
May God's Heaven be your blanket
As you softly sleep...
Softly sleep...

In every age mankind attempts
To fabricate great works
At once magnificent
And impossible...

On desert sands, from mountains of stone
A pyramid!
From flying butrresses alone
A Wall of light!
A Chapel ceiling
Screaming one man's ecstasy!
One Man's ecstacy...
Miracles them all!
China's endless wall...
Stonehenge, The Parthenon, The Duomo
The Aqueducts of Rome

We did not attempt to make
With mammoth blocks of stone
A giant pyramid
No, Not a pyramid...
Nor gothic walls that radiate with light...

Our task was to dream upon
And then create
A floating city!...
Floating city!...

A Human Metropolis...
A Complete Civilzation!
And fast!
At once a poem
And the perfection
of physical engineering...
At once a poem
And the perfection of physical engineering...

Sail on, Sail on
Great Ship Titanic!
Cross the open sea
Pray the journey's sound
Till your port be found
Fortune's winds
Sing Godspeed to thee...
Fortune's winds
Sing Godspeed to thee!
