Lyrics


Black Box (Pt. 1)

The weather was absolutely perfect on this morning, so we could see everything very clearly

You knew that there had been a terrible eruption but you couldn’t see any machinery

You just see this collapsing ice

When we got closer, the pilot said there was something on the radar that he hadn’t seen the day before

Then we saw for the first time what had happened in the crater

We saw nothing but black ice, covered with ash and then water with floating ice blocks and ash at the bottom

We only got a very brief glimpse but you really felt you were seeing something nobody had seen before

I got really afraid, My heart missed a beat

I felt this had already happened but I was about to see it again
