    Lyrics

    Under the gun

    Looking at baby's face I saw the plight of the
    human race
    Dying to survive
    Shaken by the irony the anger rose inside of me
    And would not, would not subside
    I thought you're too young to understand
    That the fate of every mortal man
    Rests in someone's mortal hand tonight
    In the nuclear insanity there's a death watch
    on the land and sea
    And I believe that we may never live our lives

    We were born under the gun and just like
    every mother's son
    We are hostage to the megaton and the world
    could die tonight
    Under the gun, we live in fear that the end
    will come
    But there's one place to run
    Run to the Son

    Everyone can see that the hour is late
    And every soul on Earth got to demonstrate
    Their loving if we're to survive
    'Cos we're tired of living on the brink
    Scared to death that our ship will sink
    At the winking of an eye
    This course we're on's a big mistake

    'Cos we all lose in the nuclear race
    It's time to show all the heads of state that we
    believe
    Yes we believe that we're fighting for our lives
    We were born under the gun and just like
    every mother's son
    We are hostage to the megaton and the world
    could die tonight
    Under the gun, we live in fear that the end
    will come
    But there's one place to run
    Run to the Son

    There's a finger on the button but if it's
    pressed we're not forgotten
    Millions speak, feel no fear
    The mood to change is in ascendance here
    There's a finger on the button but if it's
    pressed we're not forgotten
    Millions speak, feel no fear
    The mood to change is in ascendance here
    There's a finger on the button but if it's
    pressed we're not forgotten
    There's a finger on the button but if it's
    pressed we're not forgotten
