Children turn away Just before the blast Falling to the floor And praying for the last time. Time to remember and lay another wreath Blowing down kisses to my lover dead beneath South pacific sailor movie-making men. Children turn away Just before the blast Falling to the floor And praying for the last time

When all is said and all is done My hands that work with a fire and steel. Fashion play your part To be workers of red Fashion play your part To be workers. While all the time you dance around And things get fucked and we're to blame And I couldn't think political blue. When all is said and all is done My hands that work with a fire and steel. When all is said and all is done My hands that work with a fire and steel And motionless we'll slip away Images are my thoughts too real.
