So many tears ago the people on this earth
They were laughin'
They didn't think of anything else
Than love and peace
But generations failed to see
That they were causin'
Trouble for the future
They didn't know that one single war

Would continue to increase
But I'll be beside you
'Cause I want to hide you

I'll cover my pain
Or I'll gone insane
Oh Lord where will it end
When tomorrow is done
Oh Lord can we stop to pretend
That we can survive in the future to come

As long as you can see
As long as you can feel
There's no cause for alarm
As long as you can touch
As long as you can more

It ain't too bad
But one day or another
This world would maybe
Be destroyed forever
A holocaust maybe be spread
And drive us all mad

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the nuclear weapons scare in the 80s. Very disturbing lyrics.

    General CommentI think this song has an armageddon undertone to it.... possibly written about the war to end all wars in the near future.........
