Heading For Lakehurst

Weather is cloudy all over the earth
Sun may be shining but many are hurt
Just like at Lakehurst the story will tell
Horrible flameburst, panic and hell

Weather the sun shines, it may disappear
Leaving humanity in oceans of fear
Just like the Hindenburg we’re reaching the mast
Will we be able to hold back the blast ?

Piet committed suicide
And jumped to take his final flight
It’s told his life came rushing by
Before he hit the ground to die

People on the giant blimp
In luxury they take a glimp
At mankind’s evil history
Do they care for what they see ?

Children are playing with balloons in the park
It’s starting to rain and the sky’s getting dark
The mother of airships is coming near
Hope for the future will all disappear
