Nuclear Holocaust

Fire, the holy wellspring of light.
The horrific, ungodly sounds.
Burn the shadows, destroy the night.

The clock hands striking midnight,
Death comes on wings, faster than hounds.
Fire, the holy wellspring of light.

Endless strength, fuel of the sun's might.
The mass of corpses, stacked in mounds.
Burn the shadows, destroy the night.

Blazing flash that obscures the sight,
Film of dust that litters the ground,
Fire, the holy wellspring of light.

An urban forest's fatal blight,
All lives ended, souls, heaven bound.
Burn the shadows, destroy the night.

The four horseman's terrible flight.
Hopes and dreams come spiraling down,
Fire, the holy wellspring of light.
Burn the shadows, destroy the night.
