Candy cane walks down 
To build a bonfire to break my fall 
My baby, my sweet thing 
Just maybe we could lose ourselves this time 
King of the horseflies, dark prince of death 
His tragic forces are heaven sent 
In sweet things, in a lover's breath 
In knowing this was meant to be the last 
A go go go kids, a go go go style 
A suck suck suck kiss, a suck suck suck smile 
As always in young need 
A veiled promise to never die 
On dead highways, her black beauties roam 
For June angels, so far from home 
For a love lost, a faded picture 
To tread lightning, to ink the lavender skies 
So get on, get on, get on the bomb 
Get back, get back where you belong
Get on, get on, get on the bomb 
Get back, get back where you belong
Get on, get on, get on the bomb 
Get back, get back where you belong
Get on
The bomb
