Frail state of mind, been wondering how I’ll die?\

 

Fission or Fusion? What type of bomb are we dealing with?

 

Could they strike on the fourth, will I even live to see July Fifth?

 

Anxiety levels rising, the sun was eclipsed by the nuclear shadow.

 

Keep my ears open, the group chat keeps me up on the news,

 

World War III is coming, and with it, will come the nuclear holocaust.

 

Everything ends in an instant, nothing left of you, except maybe a shadow

 

Etched into the concrete, the world dies, from this all out assault.

 

Ironically enough, a nuclear fire could help to reverse global warming,

 

Ash and soot inside the atmosphere, cool down the earth itself.

 

Beginning of a fallout shelter, fuck this could be my greatest performance,

 

Don’t meme me with a tinfoil hat, I’m not Alex Jones, I’m fucking paranoid.

 

Snow starts to fall from the sky, composed of Uranium and Plutonium,

 

Stay indoors for seventy two hours, or else risk a radiation death.

 

The fate of the world and my own life, rests upon the roll of a dice,

 

Will I burn up in the firestorm, or live to grow old, an ambiguous last breath.

 

If we’re currently in the Second Cold War, how long until it becomes hot?

 

Doesn’t matter who strikes first, the earth will burn in a radioactive fire.

 

Mutually Assured Destruction keeps control, but the situation is still dire,

 

The Doomsday Clock continues to tick, not much longer until it hits midnight.

 

Frail state of mind, been wondering how I’ll die?

 

Fission or Fusion? What type of bomb are we dealing with?

 

Could they strike on the fourth, will I even live to see July Fifth?

 

Anxiety levels rising, the sun was eclipsed by the nuclear shadow.
