They said: protect and you'll survive
(But our postman didn't call)
8lbs. Of over-pressure wave seemed to glue him to the wall.
They said: protect and you'll survive.

E.M.P. took out the radio
(And our milk-man didn't call)
Flash blinded by the pretty lights,
Didn't see his bottles fall

Or feel the warm black rain arrive.
Big friendly cloud builds in the West
(And our dust-men haven't called).
They left the dual carriageway at a hundred miles an hour,
