Jello Biafra – Atomic Power lyrics

O' this world is a at a tremble
With it's strength and mighty power
They're sending up to heaven
To get the brimstone fire
Take warning my dear brother
Be careful how you plan
You're working with the power
Of God's own holy hand

Atomic power
Atomic power
Was given by the mighty hand of God
Atomic power
Atomic power
Was given by the mighty hand of God

You remember two great cities
In a distant foreign land
When scorched from the face of earth
The power of Japan
Be careful my dear brother
Don't take away the joy
But use it for the good of man
And never to destroy


Hiroshima, Nagasaki
Paid a big price for their sins
When scorched from the face of earth
Their battle could not win
But on that day of judgment
When comes a greater power
We will not know the minute
And we will not know the hour
