Let us have peace, let us have life Let us escape the cruel night Let us have time, let the sun shine Let us beware the deadly sign The day is coming Armageddon's near Inferno's coming Can we survive the blitzkrieg? The blitzkrieg The blitzkrieg Save us from fate, save us from hate Save ourselves before it's too late Come to our need, hear our plea Save ourselves before the earth bleeds The day is dawning The time is near Aliens calling Can we survive the blitzkrieg?
