There’s a warm glow over the ocean
It’s coming closer in a slow steady motion
Is this the future past or present
It feels so mild and gentle tender and pleasant

Meantime the wheels are turning
Tiny machines are churning out
Fact and fiction loud and proud

A million versions of the real thing
Stage adaptations and two films in the making
While we’re still waiting on the headland
Transfixed in wonder as we’re swallowed by quicksand

As the events slowly unfold
The story’s already been told
Turned into advertising gold

There’s a dark cloud over the north ridge
The townsfolk gather near the foot of the old bridge
Vilma says this might be the big one
Goes back inside swiftly returns with a shotgun

She aims at the power station
No signs of hesitation
Just pure determination

Split second later she gives a start
As the rebounding bullet finds her heart

Her final words were heaven sent
She knew that this is how she’d end
