They're coming for you my darlin' They're coming for you my friend They're coming to do what they promised So let this be the bitter end They came with tongues of liars They came with words of hate They came to keep us divided But we won't accept that fate They're coming for you my darlin' They're coming for you my friend They're coming to take what they wanted So let this be the bitter end They sold your time by the hour They tried to sell of your health They'd sell your soul for that power And who controls all that wealth They're coming for you my darlin' They're coming for you my friend They're coming to do what they promised So let this be the bitter end So fuck them all, let them control They know not what they do As it burns we'll stand back laughing And scream Fuck all of you They're coming for you my darlin' They're coming for you my friend They're coming to do what they promised So let this be the bitter end

Nuke Song 03:55
Mutually assured destruction is a goddamn lie Nuclear deterrents fail, the second one hits the sky. Revenge pure and simple, Murder in the first degree Should we threaten millions of people To prove don't front with me? So give up the Nukes we don't need them. Take that money to the people feed them If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong. Give up the Nukes we don't need them. Take that money to the people feed them If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong. But I'd still never drop a bomb. Multi-lateral disarmament can be achieved. Probably not in my life time but a man can dream. I ain't talking about defence. Just how far we'll go. And I ain't ever listening to those that dropped them not so long ago So give up the Nukes we don't need them. Take that money to the people feed them If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong. Give up the Nukes we don't need them. Take that money to the people feed them If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong. But I'd still never drop a bomb. All empires will burn and fall We the people don't need a war All the empire will burn and fall We the people don't need a war So give up the Nukes we don't need them. Take that money to the people feed them If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong. Give up the Nukes we don't need them. Take that money to the people feed them If it all kicks off I'll admit I was wrong. But I'd still never drop a bomb.
