On the last day of war

There was no one left to kill

No one left to murder

Or bury ‘neath a hill

The children had all died

That were sent to war 

The parents had all died

Their hearts couldn’t take anymore


No one could proclaim

That the war had come to an end

The voices had been silenced

Except for the wind

No tears were shed

For the bodies returning from war

Everything lay stagnant

Was there life here before


No one heard the birds that sang

For they’d all gone away

No one heard the dogs barking

Not even a lonely stray

The leaves on the wind were silent

Their audience dead and gone

No one to enjoy their voice

No one to hear their song


Mushroom clouds over head

More than the eye could see

More than one could count

More than one could conceive

Buttons pushed in panic

Buttons pushed in anger

Wiped out our loved ones 

Along with the stranger


Who would have thought

In so short of time

That time would stand still

Till the end of time 

Bring about peace

Before peace dies a horrid death

Before we lose our life

Before we lose our breath
