A current whistles like the choir
Aluminum birds fly by wire
Hearts beating under wings of white
The manmade star shining in flight

Aerodynamic hollow sky stone
The all-seeing-eye that spy’s alone
Flying car with a bird’s-eye-view
Caked between two layers of blue

Rise, Rise, Airplane Rise
From all hands, to the skies

The God of winds sees blasphemy
Unholy manmade tragedy

The faster it falls, time slows down
A manmade comet from the skies
Forty lives before eighty eyes

Rise, Rise, Airplane Rise
From all hands, to the skies
