3 Minute Warning


you got a 3 minute warning go under your stairs
with your dehydrated milk and your 15 cans of beans
tell you on the radio don't panic human race
your life is not so vital as it seems
as it seems ahhaha as it seems

Take off your door and prop it up against the wall
at an angle of 35 degrees
grab you're treasured possesions your cigarettes drugs and booze
and pile them up any way you please
any way you please ahahahah any way you please

written by Lynn Bradshaw 1992 at 548 Boydstone Road Glasgow G46 8HW

Ministry of defence knew all about armeggedon
someones finger on the button all the time
kept us in the dark for oh oh a hundred years
like peasants kept deaf dumb and blind
deaf dumb and blind

So we come out out of our shelters
after oh who knows how long
to find our planet devastated
and most of the people gone

The ones that survived
mutilated for all time
and a beautiful world destroyed
that once was yours and mine

yours and mine
oh oh oh
yours and mine

you got a 3 minute warning
3 minute warning
oh oh oh oh
it's not enough

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
