Atom Bomb

from Honesty And Thorns by Calum Carlyle



a modern folk ballad


We made the atom bomb
In our own image and look what it's done to us
Never knew what went wrong
In our ambitions, were we too headstrong or
Is this our time of renewal?
A baptism of fire in our hearts?
Or is this our one final hour?
Will we get to make a new start?

will tell
If we
Can ever live together

You're the one i adore
Can't let myself say the wrong thing when i talk to you
You're the thing i want more
Of the times that we've spent holding hands
Is this our Three Mile Island?
Our Bikini Atoll at the end?
And once the fallout has fallen
There's no way to make amends?

Will tell
If we
Can ever live together

And one day we'll know
Which way we should go
Will it be fusion or fire
Or desire?

We made the atom bomb...
