There was nothing wrong
When the title ordained
The Lord has pinned thousands of islands
Equator, equator
The emeralds sparkle on your feet

There was nothing wrong
When darkness and bright were being tested
Like magma beneath hundreds of mountain
Conceived by earth for thousands of years
Krakatoa, Krakatoa
The world’s most powerful eruption swallowed the sun
Continental drift, a repeating fate
Then will we deny?

In the blessing of land, nature’s broke in unity
Spread to the outlying lands
To the peak of the highest mountain and deepest trough
Life wrote the history on earth plates
Thousands of flowers met thousands of lives
Ring of fire country is an heirloom
It is our destiny
