An end to man?
Verse
The dawn of the atom brought us fear.
We dreaded the end was near.
We feared the day the bombs would fall.
When death would come to call.
Pre chorus
The wall came tumbling down.
The cold war came to an end.
Now here we are, here we are
Facing disaster again.
Chorus
It won’t be the atom, won’t be the atom
That brings an end to man.
Verse
We’ve had close calls and global crisis.
From Fidel down to Isis.
Like fools we thought, we thought all’s well.
But now we face a new hell.
Pre chorus
The wall came tumbling down.
The cold war came to an end.
Now here we are, here we are
Facing disaster again.
Chorus
It won’t be the atom, won’t be the atom
That brings an end to man.
Bridge
Like the wind it has no borders.
Where it goes no one knows.
We pass it on with a handshake.
Dismiss it as a cold.
Verse
The end of an era, end of man?
Could this be our last stand?
We thought the bomb would bring the end
But turns out it is a friend.
Pre chorus
The wall came tumbling down.
The cold war came to an end.
Now here we are, here we are
Facing disaster again.
Chorus
It won’t be the atom, won’t be the atom
That brings an end to man.
