lyrics

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.
