Behind Enemy Lines – Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind lyrics

With the cold war now behind us we no longer live in fear
Of a world on the brink of annihilation
Where in a flash it could all disappear
The forgotten nuclear stockpiles of military might
Were never designed for use or destruction
But to help us sleep at night
What ever happened to our nuclear arms?
They were only forgotten they weren't disarmed
The threat has not been left behind
They're just out of sight and out of mind
The absence of a threat is another illusion
To keep us all sedate
So we won't reject but just accept
When someone else controls our fate
And from taking issue with the massive armaments
And their outrageous cost
And the possibility of nuclear war
The whole world would have lost
What ever happened to our nuclear arms?
They were only forgotten they weren't disarmed
The threat has not been left behind
They're just out of sight and out of mind
The ghosts of the past strongly suggest
That our responsibility not be waived
While the skeletons in our closet
Prove that we're depraved
The insanity of the superpowers placed us in a race
With an unavoidable finish that we're still condemned to face
The threat of a nuclear holocaust will continue to persist
As long as hatred is still alive and the weapons still exist
We're no safer now than we ever were
We're simply in denial
In truth the reality of destruction
Has been with us all the while
We're still faced with the doomsday scenario
And it still is our concern
Will we ever face our responsibility
Or will humanity never learn
What ever happened to our nuclear arms?
They were only forgotten they weren't disarmed
The threat has not been left behind
They're just out of sight and out of mind
