about

A view from the bunker as the bombs begin to fall.

lyrics

Diego Garcia

Its always hard on the little ones
But if you ask around
Its just as bad for the middle sons
When the dynasty starts burning through the love
Will the rebels attack from the wast?
Or will they come in from the east?
You must beware noncommittal ones
Your back is turned and then its all the above

Do you remember Ibiza Spain?
That was us at our ruthless best
That bitch will never be the same
Lesson learned, though, brother brother brother tell me now, weren't those the days?
But now there's death raining down from above
From Diego Garcia
The people will always bless our name
But the hour tells me that now its time to pray
(Let us pray)

Bring me my mastiffs
Bring me my silken shirts, pour me Hennessey
You're not going anywhere, you're staying right here
With me till the artificial fire draws the curtains on me

Bring me my mastiffs
Bring me my silken shirts, pour me Hennessey
You're not going anywhere, you're staying right here
With me while the artificial fire draws the curtains on me

Cos now there's death raining down from above
From Diego Garcia
The people will always bless our name
And the hour tells me - now its time to pray
Let us pray
