In my rear view mirror the sun is going down
And I think of all the good things
And I suffer premonitions
Of the holocaust to come.
The wire that holds the cork
Gives way
The sun is in the east
Two suns in the sunset
Could be the human race is run.
Like the moment when the brakes lock
"Oh no!"
You stretch the frozen moments with your fear.
And you'll never see their faces

My tears evaporate
Finally I understand the feelings of the few.
Foe and friend

Spreading from the east with an expected high of 4000 degrees
