falling of the rain

And Iím singing for the nation
But Iím singing though the rain
Itís burning as its falling
Things will never be the same

Cause itís a pathway to destruction
With the falling of the rain
Itís burning as it falling
Things will never be the same

Itís the pushing of a button
Itís the calling of the arms
Itís the power of a nation
Loaded as they come

The vengeful lust for power
The pride to be the best
What greater chance to conquer
All manner of new tests

Power, it can blind you
To the error of your ways
Canít you see before all this?
We lived the better days

And Iím singing for the nation
But Iím singing though the rain
Itís burning as its falling
Things will never be the same

Cause itís a pathway to destruction
With the falling of the rain
Itís burning as itís falling
Things will never be the same

Itís a one way ticket to the end of time
The train stops here itís the of the line
Canít you see or are you truly blind
The power and the glory need to fall behind

Itís the beginning of an ending
To the world that we know
Itís all falling from the sky now
And thereís nowhere we can go

Did we bring this on ourselves I ask
Was it something we all did?
Or was it an answer from a leader
To a question, misunderstood?

For the world now itís cracking
Canít take the pressure and the strain
The end of time is coming
Itís falling with the rain

And Iím singing for the nation
But Iím singing though the rain
Itís burning as its falling
Things will never be the same

Cause itís a pathway to destruction
With the falling of the rain
Itís burning as itís falling
Things will never be the same

And as I search for the reason
Behind the action done
The harshness and the finality
From this we cannot run

From the pushing of a button
It seems the end is truly here
So gather all your loved ones
To help you fight the fear

When the last light leaves this planet
And thereís nothing left behind
Thereíll be nobody to remember
The existence of mankind

So is this what weíre after
To go down with the rain
Wipe out our own existence
Cause our own great pain

So Iím singing for the nation
But Iím singing though the rain
Itís burning as its falling
Things will never be the same

Cause itís a pathway to destruction
With the falling of the rain
Itís burning as itís falling
Things will never be the same

There is never just one action
Two wrongs donít make a right
We can not give up the planet
As a result of one great fight

nuclear war. and war itself really.
