The atmosphere is tense
You can taste it in the air
In a strange sort of sense
as though evrything were watching
the worst part's anticipation
as you stand at your station
waiting for the eruption
that is coming soon
then the bombshell fin'ly drops
and all the waiting stops
as does evry'thing else.
and a strange sense of relief and
of the bomb that falls tomorrow
or are all those threats so hollow
maybe there's no need to worry..
but still evrything is watching
