We were working secretly for the military.
Our experiment in sound was nearly ready to begin.
We only know in theory what we are doing.
Music made for pleasure
Music made to thrill.
It was music we were making here until -

But they told us all they wanted was a sound
That could kill someone

From a distance
So we go ahead

And the meters are over in the red.
It's a mistake in the maklng.

From the painful cries of mothers to the terrifying scream

We recorded it and put it into our machine.
But they told us all tney wanted was a sound
That could kill someone
. ..

It could feel like falling in love
It could feel so bad

But it could feel so good
It could sing you to sleep

But that dream is your enemy.

We won't be there to be blamed
We won't be there to snitch.
I just pray that someone there can hit the switch.
But they told us all they wanted was a sound
That could kill someone

From the distance
So we go ahead

And the meters are over in the red.
It's a mistake we have made.
And the public are warned to stay off.
And the public are warned to stay off.
