And there I was just sitting there,
Watching fire fall from air.
Vesuvius boomed and did explode,
I sat down and prayed in pose.
Oh my Lord what have I done,
This is the end and no more fun.
God what happened why’d we leave you,
Now my city burns to ruin.
I hope to God they see some day,
I died right here, right where I pray.
