i woke up this morning, looked out my window
and guess just what i saw
a little black mushroom now forming
but its ok, i guess we're never gonna get along
are we ever?
you know there's no time left for us
no time for love no time for lust
no fussing no fighting no crying tonight
one two give it to me said
watching the bombs as they impact on your street
i said its over and out again
its three years until i'm twenty-four
and i don't wanna die in a nuclear war
we build the weapons while our children starve
oh we gonna recognize

    General CommentWell let me start off by saying that The RXBandites are my favorite, hence you get my screenname. What this song means to me is that there are other things to worry about in this world then war. He says" there's no time left for us, no time for love, no time for lust..." This is what i love about these guys, they make sense to what the world is coming to. Excellent song.

    General CommentThis is a really powerful song and quite relevant for these times. RX Bandits is so awesome: they gave the club I'm in for creating awareness about the situation in Uganda permission to use this song in a slideshow of student art. I love when a band really is as socially aware as they claim to be.

    General CommentI always thought it said 'Mushroom cloud' becuase the song seems to be about nuclear war. But it always sounds like he says 'mushroom flowers'. Any one got a clue as to what that's about?

    This is probably one of RX's best. Great lyrics, and great to dance to.

    General Commentany ideas on the song title?
    i mean the natural first guess is well..obvious, but there's no mention of it in the lyrics, so i don't know
    maybe they're saying nugget is the answer to world peace, this song does kind of have a old-school reggae tempo/feel
