  • There's thirty-thousand megatons pointed at her
    And him and you and me and everyone we serve
    I look out at the mirror, look out at the world
    Thirty-thousand megatons is just what we deserve
    And I don't get out of bed no more
    Beasts learned to talk a bit just to survive
    But we're not even beasts, it's a wonder we're alive
    We're baser than the base, deaf and dumb and blind

    I'll not stand for Maybelline, or Kyle or Jackie O
    Or my sunburnt country burning people I don't know
    I'll not stand alone, or sing in one tune
    To see a Virgin air hostess serve Bolly on the moon
    And if I was the man on the Moon, I wouldn't let us near
    I'd stand on a crater with my shotgun to the sky
    And leave us to our mines and our Tinder 'til we die
    And the Earth will sigh, and the Moon will wipe its brow

    We need thirty-thousand megatons
    Push the button now
    We need thirsty-thousand megatons
    Push the button now

    Out on the street, it's only vitamins and hate
    We'll soon be out of Xanax and then it'll be too late
    We need thirty-thousand megatons, why wait?
    Why wait?

    We need thirty-thousand megatons
    Push the button now
    We need thirty-thousand megatons
    Push the button now Writer/s: James William Terry, Jay Wesley Watson, Joseph Michael Ryan, Nicholas Roland Allbrook
