Lyrics

Too old to move – too rich to ignore
Garden of Eden on the south Pacific shore
Sweet wonderland

No horizon – no borderline
Too far away to know or define
Sweet wonderland

Empty playground – drenched in sorrow
The forest weeps – last harvest tomorrow
Sweet wonderland

Made in Japan
The pleasure boats are leaving
But there’s nowhere else to go
Into time-on, only minutes left
Here the whistle blow
Sweet wonderland

Dream of the future – forget about the past
I’ll sell you something – you think it’s gonna last
Sweet wonderland

Give away your riches – give away your gold
Ghost nation’s soul can never be sold

Too old to move – too rich to ignore
Garden of Eden on the south Pacific shore
Sweet wonderland

Made in Japan
The pleasure boats are leaving
But there’s nowhere else to go
Into time-on, only minutes left
Here the whistle blow
Sweet wonderland
