The Bomb

       One day a bomb will fall
       You will be killed, so will we all
       It can happen any day
       In one second you're blown away

       But you won't be aware of that
       Before you realize it you're dead
       Anytime it can be done
       You won't even know you're gone 

       Every day you should be glad
       You didn't wake up being dead
       You can be killed, you know you can
       The problem is you don't know when 

       It can be today, it can be tonight
       The problem is you know I'm right
       But you won't be aware of that
       Before you realize it you're dead

       One day a bomb will fall

 

Growing up during the Cold War left its marks.

The idea of living in a continent with hundreds of nuclear missiles aimed at it was slightly unnerving..
