Thomas Dolby – Armageddon lyrics

Inamoena tempora!

(Unhappy times!)

Bella ecce barbara!

(Lo! Horrid wars)

Deuruntur oppida

(Cities are burnt)


Tument nubes hodie
(The clouds today)

Atrae atro sanguine
(are heavy with black blood)

Perditos O homines!

(O lost mankind!)


Dies irae iruit
(The day of anger)

Nostrum nunc in mundum, et
(has rushed now upon our world, and)

Vitam totam destruit.

(destroyed all life)


Child of the revolution
Victim of thought pollution

Showtime for good and evil
No time for restitution

Showdown for good and evil.
No time for absolution
