Lyrics
There's peace in the country when the sun goes down,
The corn is getting on high,
The war is over an there's peace all around,
I'm gonna stay here 'till I die, yeah,
I'm gonna stay here 'till I die

The war was bad but it didn't last long,
Millions are dead and gone,
Nuclear warheads flying all around,
Somebody dropped the bomb, yeah,
Somebody dropped the bomb

There was blood in the mountains, blood in the sea,
Blood everywhere I trod,
Women were dying, children too,
And everybody lost, yeah, everybody lost

Now the sun's getting lower, and the shadows are cast,
I can see the corn getting high,
No fish in the ocean, no birds in the air,
Just dust 'cause someone dropped the bomb, yeah,
Dust 'cause someone dropped the bomb

Damn the politicians, dictators and all, whoever got us into this mess,
I'm the only one left with all my senses and limbs,
I dunno what's happened to the rest, no, I dunno what's happened to the rest
