about

Far and away past Promethium and Polonium, past Bismuth and Plutonium, travellers tell of an Island of Stability, where super-heavy elements live out long and happy half-lives, dancing to the rhythms of their magical numbers beside the unstable sea...

lyrics

What do you know?
Did you find what they were all looking for,
And is it super-heavy?
Where’d you go?
I turned around to tell you something
But you were gone and I wasn’t ready

Send me a postcard from your Island of Stability
Wish you were here
Some mixed emotion recollected in tranquillity

My half-life is getting shorter by the day
And we all want to stop going under
But though we try, we seem to be no nearer now
Perhaps I’ll never get those magic numbers

Send me a postcard from your Island of Stability
Wish you were here
Some mixed emotion recollected in tranquillity

It’s an elemental dream
It’s 114
It’s accelerated thinking
It’s trying to stop that isotopic ship from sinking

Send me a postcard from your Island of Stability
Wish you were here
Some mixed emotion recollected in tranquillity
