The sun is burning in the skyStrands of clouds go slowly drifting byIn the park the lazy breezeAre joining in the flowers, among the treesAnd the sun burns in the skyNow the sun is in the WestLittle kids go home to take their restAnd the couples in the parkAre holdin' hands and waitin' for the darkAnd the sun is in the WestNow the sun is sinking lowChildren playin' know it's time to goHigh above a spot appearsA little blossom blooms and then draws nearAnd the sun is sinking lowNow the sun has come to EarthShrouded in a mushroom cloud of deathDeath comes in a blinding flashOf hellish heat and leaves a smear of ashAnd the sun has come to EarthNow the sun has disappearedAll is darkness, anger, pain and fearTwisted, sightless wrecks of menGo groping on their knees and cry in painAnd the sun has disappeared
