    No one was looking, no one seemed there
    should he or shouldn't he, oh should he dare

    await on the line, ready for lift
    a short burst of speed, and he'd be up swift

    up he scuttled, in he popped
    ignition on and bubble dropped

    rumble, rumble custard crumble
    its belly yearned the expanse of the blue
    so many gadgets, try not to fumble
    brakes off, and thrusters in spue

    he sunk in the seat, as it vibed on the ground
    it rose to airborne without a sound

    the gain was quick, it pierced the air
    Africa below, Erik in the chair

    power up, it's time for the fun
    a crack of thunder, and past Mach 1

    oh the rush, oh the joy
    a marvel of science, this wonderful toy

    in school he may have been a nerd
    but now he mans, The Thunderbird

    Thunderbird

    He cries and flaps his wings
    And down cascades the rain
    And all of nature sings
    And the world can breathe again

    He blinks and lightning glistens
    From eyes composed of snakes
    And the people watch and listen
    As thunder rolls and shakes

    So let the bell be heard
    And the vespers call us in
    But it's to you, O Thunderbird,
    It's to you I sing!

    Kw-Uhnx-Wa

    So many uneven and shiny floors
    gloaming beneath very sterile ceilings
    unfamiliar and solitary hospital corridors
    supported by glued up feelings

    Roaming are the relentless vultures
    with heavy breaths and their wings pounding
    they never inspired wooden sculptures
    or sacred myths from their surroundings

    So I wait forever for the sound of thunder
    hard rain upon these barren fields
    calming all these scavenger’s hunger
    and so demanding of your very last meal

    This white covered wasteland,
    monitors behind automatic glass doors
    all drown in the mighty wingspan
    Kw-Uhnx-Wa, the creature of vast force

    Who will appear for you under purge
    and soar proudly upon skies of medicine
    the prevailing Thunderbird
    wherever you end; it begins
