"I don't want to set the world on fire..." Red flash, clouds Choking out the morning sky. They said it'd never come, We knew it was a lie. All forms of life die now, The humans all succumb Time to kiss your ass goodbye, The end has just begun. Distorted figures walk the street, It's 1999. Weeds once underneath your feet Have grown to vines. Bodies melted like a candle, A land without a face. No time to change your fate, No time left, it's too late. The arsenal of megadeath* Can't be rid they said. And if it comes, The living will envy the dead. Racing for power, And all come in last No winning, first stone cast. This falsehood, worldly peace Its treaties soon will cease. No one will be left To prove that humans existed. Maybe soon the children Will be born open-fisted. We all live on one planet. It will all go up in smoke. Too bad they couldn't see This lethal energy. And now the final scene A global darkening. Dig deep, piles of rubble and ruins Towering overhead both far and wide. There's unknown tools For World War III Einstein said "We'll use rocks on the other side." No survivors! Set the world afire! No survivors! Set the world afire!
