about

As they set sail, there is a feeling of innocent bliss in the air, captured in a lovely duet between Sachal and Johnaye. Everything is A-OK. In other words, what could possibly go wrong? But the feeling of foreboding continues, subtly at first, and then more ominously as this section comes to an end. Mike Moreno plays the guitar solo.

lyrics

Breeze on the nape, and it’s A-Okay, A-Okay
La la la la
We’re floating on the sea
Just drifting along
We’ll float away, float away,

Sunny sunny day not one cloud a sunny sunny day
And we’ll bask in the light until sunset
We’re riding high today.

Dreaming of a pyramid or a castle in the clouds
Palaces of gold - horse and chariot too.

Breeze on the nape, and it’s A-Okay, A Okay
When we’re out here nothing matters.

Everything’s okay, don’t you worry
Everything’s okay, it’s just A-Okay.
