"Love is all a matter of timing.
It’s no good meeting the right person too soon or too late.
If I’d lived in another time or place…
…my story might have had a very different ending.”

I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you’re safe and happy and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.

They say the sky used to be blue?

I don’t quite believe it

It’s probably always been the colour that it is

And there were cotton candy clouds and birds to fly through it?

Just stories we all love to tell our kids

So I’ll close my electronic door and keep the cold outside

Hug my aluminium pillow so tight

And pray the radiation doesn’t make me sick tonight

There used to be a wind wasn’t caused by fans?

I wonder how it would of felt in my hair

And the nuclear ring around the moon was caused by man

If it was then it’s much to late to care

So I’ll put my safety goggles and gaze out at the sun

The artificial atmosphere machines give off a constant hum

In a world that’s cold and peaceful April 2031

No more sky and no more trees

No more oxygen to breathe

No more hate and no more war

Nothing left worth fighting for 2031

As far back as Vietnam we should of learned our lesson

But we closed our eyes and sent our son’s away

And they told us we were winning as they sold more ammunition

Some were angry most just looked the other way

Ohh, nights illuminated by the endless glowing sand

That swallowed all the oceans and choked off all the land

In a world beyond resuscitation even by God’s hand

No more mountains no more sea

No more you and no more me

No more music no more songs

No God left to blame it on

No more children playing April 2031

No more need for praying April 2031
