Here's Tony going to his cub scout meeting
Tony knows the bomb can explode
Any time of the year
Day or Night
Duck and cover !
Head up boy Tony
That flash means act fast
Sundays, holidays, vacation time
We must be ready everyday, all the time
To do the right thing
When the atomic bomb explodes
Duck and cover !

This land has been raped
Torn in two with the fission scourge
Marked the end of the era of man
Shutting down our business here
Enraptured by the shine
Red buttons pressed tonight
Spurt a thousand mushroom clouds
The ozone layer stripped
From outer stratosphere
The streets run rife
With radioactive debris

We lived best we could
And then we died
Be careful where you tread
The grave is wide
The cities swallowed the fallout
From seven billion agonies
The landscape knows us
Our shadows walk the streets
The heat of the second sun
Translucent flesh
Remember dreaming of my heart
Vanishing in a blast
Waiting for the circle to complete itself
We were told the light would prevail

Looking towards the void
Scared of the second sun
Watched the buildings fall

Found solace in scorched earth
Remember watching the horizon bend
Found solace in scorched earth
Remember watching the horizon bend
Around the blow

We bled upon this heartless world
Vaporized that day
Found peace in air

In this early and troubled stage
of the atomic age
Our lives may depend on always being alert
