"Two Minute Warning" as written by and Alan Wilder....
We're lying by the orange sky
Two million miles across the land
Scattered to the highest high
Expect they'll either laugh or cry
No sex, no consequence, no sympathy
You're good enough to heat

Two minute warning
Two minutes later
When time has come
My days are numbered

The dawning of another year
Marks time for those who understand
One in four still here
While you and I go hand in hand
No radio, no sound, no sin, no sanctuary
So welcome to your last

The sun, the solitude, the cemetery
So welcome to your last

    General CommentI agree with Sozluk.

    It's an Alan Wilder song. It's very simplistic, but has a great hook.

    General CommentThe song title comes from the "doomsday clock" created by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists where midnight represents the outbreak of an actual nuclear war. So when Gahan sings "2 minute warning! 2 minutes later when time has come...my days are numbered" he is talking about the anticipation of an impending nuclear attack.
