lyrics

"They said that in event an atomic war starts they would not interfere
until the people start crying to God for help and then they’ll put a stop to it
(I’m on the air!)
They are only going to observe and prevent any bomb being exploded
That would destroy this planet or our civilization"
- George Van Tassel on Aliens, 1956

Found the reason why it's gettin' so bad
All my life singing verses from a sick sad song
Till the light is all gone
But when that melody hit
You know it hit like an atom bomb

When it come
When it come
When it come
Oh Lord, you know it hit like an atom bomb

Tripped a breaker when my old man died
Now, I’m haunted by the fear of not feeling alive
Well, I’m on fire tonight
And when that melody hit
Y’know it come from the sky
Here it come

When it come
When it come
When it come
Oh Lord, it’s gonna hit like an atom bomb, bomb, bomb

I was born in 1984
I heard a chorus and the gold voice splintered my eye
You know the world only ends when you die
And when that melody hits
Ya gotta raise up and fly fly fly

When it come
When it come
When it come
When that melody hit like an atom bomb
When that melody hit like an atom bomb
When that melody hit like an atom bomb
