lyrics

Plastic sirens singing
What are the currents bringing?

A cool and hard petrochemical swirling
The plastic godhead flag unfurling

It's a beautiful day
And I think I'm going to stay
On a Pacific Gyre holiday

Bags and bottles float by
And catch the gleam in your eye
And the whole neuston seems to say

Oooooo…
It is not dying
Life will find a way
The new ecology
On a Pacific Gyre Holiday

Out on Midway Atoll
The plastic caps and baubles
Keep the Albatross bellies full

See those birds can't fly
But they're still going to try
You can watch knowing they're going to die

And an albatross
Seems so obvious
A symbol for what we have lost

Oooooo…
It is not dying
Life will find a way
The new ecology
On a Pacific Gyre Holiday

Coral bleached like teeth
Down in the deep green sea,
It’s the remains of you and me
on a Pacific Gyre holiday
