Most of the world's energy comes from Oil. Nuclear power promised so much, but has failed to deliver a viable alternative. This song is set after the final Oil Crisis. Once the world's oil production declines, that's it. We'll either have got our act together and found a sustainable alternative, or we'll be back in the Stone Age..
The Children of the Nuclear Age
Warm themselves around the fire
And think back to the time
When we had it all
We were all so vain
And quite possibly insane
And we lived in so much hope
Then we lost it all..

Somewhere there's a stain
Buried deep inside my brain
And it's leeching through the veins into my heart..
[x4]

And the Children of the Nuclear Age
Throw another branch onto the fire
And think back to the Golden Age
When we had it all
We were all so vain
And quite possibly insane
And we lived in so much hope
And we lost it all..

Somewhere there's a stain
Hidden deep inside my brain
And it's bleeding through my veins into my heart…
