Johm Q. Public – 20 Minute Warning / Nuclear Mutation lyrics

Twenty minute warning,
In confusion, people scattered,
Reagan reassured us,
That nothing was the matter,

People ran for shelter,
As the brightness filled the sky,
Terrified and helpless,
We all knew that we would die.

People died on contact,
From the radioactive mess,
But we were in a shelter,
Our coherence growing less,

As the time passed by,
And the smoke began to clear,
Nothing could prepare us,
Mutational changes did appear.

Lyrics - main body

We have no eyes,
We've lost our sense of smell,
Hear our cries,
We've awakened in a living hell.

We've awoken in a deslolate nation,
From which there is no hope for salvation,
You're a nuclear mutation,
I'm a nuclear mutation.

Our flesh is dead,
Clammy cold and pale,
I cannot sleep,
Can't tell day from night.

We've awoken in a deslolate nation,
From which there is no hope for salvation,
When you're a nuclear mutation,
And I'm a nuclear mutation.
And I'm a product of World War three.
