"Nuclear Winter" as written by John Van Deusen, Robert Krueger, Anthony Ruland and Eric Sturgeon....
Now we're leaving, father says
Our world's falling through and the fire spreads quickly
All I hear, all I know is the bombs and the screams
That haunt the sky as their ships sail on high
I fear to leave this behind

Escaping, running, pulling away
Into our atmosphere towards freedom
They've destroyed all we've known
Burned down our home, we must find another haven

Soldiers, disappear through the atmosphere
There she goes like a marble falling
From my weakening fingertips and I can't forget this
The comfort that I've known

Escaping, running, pulling away
Into our atmosphere towards freedom
They've destroyed all we've known
Burned down our home, we must find another haven

It's a nuclear winter, all we have is infinite space

    General CommentThis is when the hero of the CD sees the entire earth disappearing through the spacecraft window. He's saying the Earth is now gone, and Space is all that's left.

    General CommentThis person forgot a few lyrics near the end.
    "We will come back to take revenge for our families, for our world gone by. Enemies must Die!"
    This is a key to the seemingly meaningless lyrics to the next song "Idiocy."

    Anyway, as for this song, it is pretty straight forward. They're headed to the portal at the Cygnus Northern Cross where a prophetic dream tells him he will find a new world. It's a great and powerful song about the corruption of the world and the desire to escape from it all, and finally being able to do it. But also the fear of leaving all he knows behind him.
