  • Out of the ruins, out from the wreckage
    Can't make the same mistakes this time
    We are the children, the last generation
    We are the ones they left behind
    And I wonder when we are ever gonna change?
    Living under the fear, till nothing else remains

    We don't need another hero,
    We don't need to know the way home
    All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

    Looking for something we can rely on
    There's got to be something better out there.
    Mmmm, love and compassion, their day is coming
    All else are castles built in the air
    And I wonder when we are ever gonna change?
    Living under the fear, till nothing else remains.

    All the children say,
    We don't need another hero,
    We don't need to know the way home
    All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

    So what do we do with our lives?
    We leave only a mark.
    Will our story shine like a light,
    Or end in the dark?
    Give it all or nothing!

    We don't need another hero,
    We don't need to know the way home
    All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

    All the children say,
    We don't need another hero,
    We don't need to know the way home
    All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkBeyond Thunderdome was the best of the Mad Max movies and it was thanks to "aunti" Tina. This song had more of a plot than the movie but it had Mel Gibson. I actually watched her more than Mel. Dang!
