about

A happy rocky rock song with a serious background. This is the world after it happend.

lyrics

A house is empty, standing alone
A cold wind blows and all life is gone
The sun is shining but despite it's dark
You can see no trees - can see no trees

Demons are watching every step that you take
In a stormy night no more decisions to make
Why am I here now? Can't get any thought
In a lonely place - a lonely place

Our hopes - our dreams
They all run into sand
Our own flesh - our own blood
Death is near at hand
Our lifes lived in vain on the day our children die
Spending our time in a house of ruins on the day our children die

Why has it happened? Why have I survived?
So many are dead now, they all have tried
The few that remain are going insane
But who's left to mourn when children die?

The nuclear winter has maimed our land
Do you still know how it was before?
Our children are laughing 'cause they think that's life
How should they know - how should they know?

Our hopes - our dreams
They all run into sand
Our own flesh - our own blood
Death is near at hand
Our lifes lived in vain on the day our children die
Living our lives in a world of ruins on the day our children die

(The ones out in the fields:) "Devoted to madness we are playing it down"

Our hopes - our dreams
They all run into sand
Our own flesh - our own blood
Death is near at hand
Our lifes lived in vain on the day our children die
Standing alone in this hall of ruins on the day our children die
