lyrics

Machu Picchu is closer than we are
To the island of Tristan da Cunha.
With its slopes and canals,
We'd have an easy time traveling
Down the perilous Andes.
Down the perilous Andes,
To the sea, to the sea,
To the island of Tristan da Cunha.

What would we do once we get
To the island of Tristan da Cunha?
Climb to the top of their mountain.
Look past all that surrounds it.
Find the perilous Andes.
Find the perilous Andes,
Past the sea, past the sea
From the island of Tristan da Cunha.

Machu Picchu's old bones never rest.
Not on the island of Tristan da Cunha.
Its peaks outnumber the isle's.
Stacked together for hundreds of miles
Along the perilous Andes.
Along the perilous Andes,
By the sea, by the sea
Not on the island of Tristan da Cunha.
