lyrics

Why did mother cry
when the television said to watch the sky?

And why does father pray?
He's a observant every Sunday, but why today?

Why do teachers make
us hide under our desks in case the windows break?

I watch the sky,
and I wear white.

[Sample 1]
We all know the atomic bomb is very dangerous. Since it may be used against us, we must get ready for it, just as we are ready for many other dangers that are around us all the time.

Why does daddy lie
about the fear I see behind his eyes? He's terrified.

I hear the men in town.
They say that either way by next year we'll be underground.

Faith has left my side.
If god almighty loves us would he let us die?

Atoms divide,
And we all wear white.
And we all wear white.
And we all wear...

[Sample 2]
To make a world in which all of God's children can live, or to go into the dark. We must either love each other, or we must die.
