And as the low aggress the high
All you can do is sit and cry
You've only got yourself to blame

Don't try to stop me; it's too late
My mind's made up; this job won't wait
There's nothing left for me to say

Hey! There's no need to debate
It's time to designate your fate
Take the M out of M.A.D.
Let's all make a bomb

Take one hundred scientists or more
Place in a room and lock the door
Let them confer for half their lives

Unlock the door; go in and see
What they have made for you and me
A brand new toy to idolize


Although the war has just begun
Ignore the sirens; let's have fun
Put on your best; go out in style

Although our future's looking black
We'll go downtown and join the pack
Let's celebrate and vapourize

    Song FactM.A.D. stands for Mutually Assured Destruction, a military doctrine that assumes that stability can be ensured when both sides know that they can completely destroy the other side. In this case, it obviously refers to the nuclear policy held by the USA and USSR during the Cold War.

    As Heaven 17 wryly note, we might as well take the "M" out of M.A.D, since the reality of this situation is that everything will be destroyed.
