We will not prematurely or unnecessarily, risk the cost of worldwide nuclear war, in which even the fruits of victory would be ashes in our mouths.

And we alone had the ultimate weapon, the nuclear weapon, with the unquestioned ability to deliver it anywhere in the world.

You come to me and ask me my opinion.
I tell you things you would have never known.
What does the future have in store for mankind?
I paint the picture it can never be shown.

Times are changin', rearrangin'
A few have got control, not tellin' what they'll do,
The end could come soon.

Survival.

Stand your guard, only time will tell.
If those few in control,
Return the earth to hell.

Man against nature, nature against man.
As she releases a vengeance,
Only a woman can.

Times are changin', rearrangin'
A few have got control, not tellin' what they'll do,
The end could come soon.

Survival.

It was as if the lights went out all over the world,
Man tried to control man.
Where grass was green, lies rock.

Where rivers flowed, there's desert sand.
The end for many came quickly.
They always said that it would.

The survivors remained,
In a world turned insane.
Back to basics, and the needs to survive.
Gold and jewels were once the riches of the world.
Food and fuel are the riches of now!

Survival.

Standing guard day and night,
Waiting for the morning light.
Here are resentments.
The survival of the fittest.

Time is now unseen,
This was there destiny.
When it came through the dust,
Of the survival of the fittest.

    General CommentSlave Raider are actually being serious. Even in other serious track like "The Black Hole" they usually make their trademark grunting and moaning to lighten the tone, but this is actually serious.

    My OpinionWell the way he says "quickly" is a little silly. I thought it was more a demonstration of how the survivors are insane. If there's one thing Chainsaw is, it's nuts.
