"After the War" as written by and John Kenneth/downes Wetton....
For those that are able
To go underground
Missiles dis-enable
They hit faster then sound

They're coming and you have no choice
The helpless with one human voice
You will categorically say
This underdog will have his day

One more dead is one more
Then it ought to be
A travesty oh oh

One more missed will be kissed
To eternity
Or purgatory oh oh

After the war
After the war

Red button he's pressing
But he knows not why
He's programming orders
War lights up the sky
He's on the hotline tonight
His mind is high as a kite
His fingers decide wrong or right
This man has it all in his sights

Used as tools to believe
In autonomy
Minorities are no more

Men are fools
One last cry to humanity
No sanity anymore

After the war
After the war
After the war

On my arm a tattoo for my sons to be
That numbers you and me
There's a scar on my face
That is photographed for all to see oh oh

After the war
