"Deadly Skies" as written by and Mould....
Deadly skies
Deadly night dreams
Well it's no lie
To say what I've seen
I've seen the end
Of the grand scheme
'Cause we all die
By our worst means

I like to protest, but I'm not sure what it's for
I guess I've got no control over the threat of nuclear war
I made a sign to carry to show that I really care
I've heard it does some good if the television people are there

Dead trees, dead leaves, deadly skies

    General CommentCan't believe there isn't a comment yet.

    Lyrics are pretty straightforward. Obviously about fear of nuclear war at the time, and the many protests that spoke out against nukes.

    I really dig the lines "I made a sign to carry to show that I really care / I've heard it does some good if the television people are there." In my interpretation, the lyric encapsulates some protesters who only protest or stand up for their own recognition and selfish thoughts they get from people looking up at them. They aren't behind the movement, but just want to make themselves feel good about it. Always resented those people.

    A really simple song, but it rocks so much in less than 2 minutes. Love the Dü.
