Originally "Dr. Fire is Burning Down" from the 1985 cassette "Destroy All Monsters." Like Ogden Nash, I used a made up word to create a rhyme.


We had a war and nobody fought it
We practiced holographic
And stationed
Rockets and missiles shrill piercing whistles
Blasts of a billion degrees in radiance
Then came the day
That hell came unchained
Soldiers stare at the sunrise
A glow never ending sunrise
And nuclear fire, nuclear fire, nuclear fire is...

Death roars ablazing Awesome amazing
Moments careening into the black abyss
So final

Annihilation blasts in the station
Blasts of a billion degrees in radiance
Now is the flame
Hell's not to blame
Soldiers die neath the sunrise
An awful artificial sunrise
And nuclear fire, nuclear fire, nuclear fire is raining down
