Here is the song lyric of Chumbawamba : and you can also sing and watch music video
It gets worse... the earth, if looked after properly, has an estimated
lifespan of another four billion years, but in 1983 there were two false
alarms of impending nuclear war every three days. They say that such alarms
are normal, and present no problem provided they can be identified as false
alarms. I said in 1983 there were two false alarms of impending nuclear
war, every three days, but in times of crisis with weapons systems already
on the alert, there is less than eight minutes to decide whether an attack
is underway or not. And there are over forty conventional wars going on in
the world today. Times of crisis, you might say. They say that waiting
longer than eight minutes would risk a surprise attack, and a loss of
command and control. In the trade this is called the "use them or lose
them" problem, which translated means, if he's gonna hit you, make sure you
hit him first. Looking at it another way, a single American strategic
submarine carries about 160 warheads, enough to eliminate every Soviet ci
ty of over 200,000 people. Of course a Soviet submarine could do the same
to America. The nuclear weapons powers operate about a hundred such
submaries and on average there are over forty at sea at any one time. A
conspiracy of two men, a submarine commander and his radioman, could
pretend to have received orders from above, and launch a nuclear missile
without actually having received those orders. In 1983 there were two false
alarms of impending nuclear war every three days. In 1983 Thatcher was
re-elected by her sleeping people. In 1984 Reagan was re-elected by his
sleeping people. In 1985...
...to determine their destiny... ...let us move to a world in which all
people are at last free to determine their own destiny...
