Guttermouth – Where Was I? lyrics

Well, country's in the red

Soon we'll be dead

No life, not even a flower

Cause atomic power

Scares the shit out of you

There's nothing you can do

Undecided men

Bout a war you can't win

Hey, who would want to win the damn thing anyway, right boys?

Children turn green

The flowers die

All the people are gone except I

The atom bombs have exploded near

Where was I if I wasn't here?

Atomic was one way out

Nuclear was the final bout

Atomic war can destroy our race

Leave the Earth in all but waste

But, where was I

When the trouble started?

Where was I when the two sides parted?

Where was I if I wasn't here?

Cause the atom bombs have exploded near

But nothing's happened to me so...
