Brand New – 137 lyrics
[Verse 1]
Under the ocean
Next to a boiling vent
He's none the wiser
Earth's only resident
It piled up
Man, it was wall to wall
Blink of an eye
And all the problems solved

Let's all go play Nagasaki
We can all get vaporised
Hold my hand, let's turn to ash
I'll see you on the other side

[Radio comm sample]
Hey it’s D1
I don’t know why it’s been so crazy... I haven’t gotten any letters from you in the last 2 days... I guess the military screwed up, ya know...[?] didn’t get here [?]... If there wasn’t a war going on this place would be pretty nice

[Verse 2]
Before the garden
When you were all alone
You made the atom
Was that some inside joke
Open the gates
And then conceal the path
Let's load the gun
And see how long they last

[Radio comm sample]
“There goes the siren again
Oh, there, goes another round I gotta- uh, go to a bunker now"

Let's go ring and run the bunkers
Baby won't you come outside?
Across the sea the birds are free
Let's watch them scream across the sky
Let's all go and meet our maker
They don't care whose side you're on
We're so afraid, I prayed and prayed
Before I learned to love the bomb

[Radio comm sample]
They won’t send you over to the side you’re not—He’s… he’s brave and he’s always going to that bunker, so don’t worry about him... No I’m not, there’s just not much more to say... Give my love to your parents and to my parents... I’ll send them a few things as soon as I get to where I’m going to—Soon I’ll be back home with my love, soon...I’ll be...But yeah... P.S. Duke, I love you

[Instrumental Interlude]

Let's all go play Nagasaki
What a lovely way to die
A final show and we all go
So no one has to say goodbye
Lets all go and meet our maker
Won't matter whose side you're on
We're so afraid, I prayed and prayed
When God told me to love the bomb
