Break Down the Bomb

With twenty five time
More power
Than it took
To take down
Each Trident rocket
Has got three

Surprise attack
Means less that
Four minutes warning
The bloom of death
And all
In the city
Will be dead.

Is this what we have become?
Is this what must be done?
What amount of craziness
Would it take to push
That red button?

Put away the button
Throw away the keys
Ain't no use
Killing our brothers and sisters
And bringing all to our knees.

Break down the Bomb
We say
Break down the Bomb
For we will be
Our brother's keeper
In this world
Not the next.

It is a strange world
When those leaders
Who refuse to kill
Millions with
Nuclear weapons
Are denounced
As weak.

When bombing
A bombed-out
Is seen as
The road to peace.
When the young
Die in shootings
For somebody
Else's rights.

Where sanitised
Is offered as mass
While the real
Results are
Too graphic
To show.

It's not such a strange world
It's just what we are taught
To value is wrong.
