  • Chorus: We are not the heroes, all the words we say can never change it
    We are not the heroes, rewrite history or rearrange it
    We are not 'the white hats', they are not 'the black'
    And none of us on either side can save our children
    On the day that we attack

    I watch my babies sleeping, and they are barely two
    They look out on a universe that's magical and new
    I sit here and imagine, in this smug, heroic nation
    What my children will look like next year
    As they die of radiation

    We all move our missiles closer to our enemies, until
    We are forced to use computers to decide just when to kill
    But computers have no judgement, or no love or hope or fear
    So mistakes are that much easier
    And nightmares cluster near


    I do not sing of spirits, so you're probably not scared
    You couldn't do a thing about it, even if you cared
    You are helpless pawns of masters, or you're blind and deaf and dumb
    And you're also not responsible ("all so" ? - C. ;-) )
    For what surely has to come

    Some are dying of diseases, so we're proud that we're not ill
    If we cannot push the button, it's not our fault bombs can kill
    Though we never reach to help, we didn't make the stumbler fall
    When our children feel the atom's kiss
    We'll share no blame at all
