Lyrics

There was light and atomic fission
Swelling wind, rising ash, tide of black rain
Cement seared shadow traces
Reminiscent of their last commands

Instantly one thousand flames arising
Ill scent the burning hides surrounding
A settlement debased entirely
Enola gay had made a casual delivery

Please build a future, darling
With our bomb, cherish and love it
For the sake of
Earth bound kingdom come
Come on, come on

The undersides of fallen metal trusses
Evil debris of human bodies
Each window's glass shards pelted
Secure confines, brittle collapse

Neighbors lay beside each other unknowing
Faces scorched of all familiar bearing
Too few hands, wounds for closing
Marred by thirsting
Anguish, fear lamenting

Here we stand at the door to gold atomic age
Don't spoil your face as with worry
Trust in, trust in
Earth bound kingdom come
Come on, come on, come on

Oh, here we stand at the door to gold atomic age
Don't spoil your face as with worry
Trust in earth bound kingdom come, come on
Come in it's all here, come in it's all here
So come on, come on
