The night is cold, the sun is down
I see faces through the wire
No chance for them
No shoulder left to cry on

It's 4 am out on the street
Through the smoke I see the fire
It's a funeral pyre
For them to die on

{chorus}
Countdown to zero
Just begun
Coundown to zero
It's time to start the run

The city lights are fading now
As I climb into the plane
To shield me from
The stinging acid rain

And this is it, it's over now
As we taxi down runway one
Tell me please
You'll wake me when it's over

{chorus}

Do you realize what's happening in western europe?
Norway, finland, scotland, england
We will be the first to go
Don't do it

{chorus}

Don't do it
Don't do it
Don't start the countdown to zero
We want to live
We want to live
We will live
You've got your finger on the trigger
Take it off
Let it go
Let it pass
Let it go
