If this was the Cold War 
We could keep each other warm 
I said on the first occasion that I met Marie 

We were crawling through the hatch 
That was the missile silo door 
And I donít think that she really thought that much of me 

I never had to learn to love her 
Like I learned to love the bomb 
She just came along and started to ignore me 

But as we waited for the big one 
I started singing her my songs 
And I think she started feeling something for me 


We passed the time with crosswords 
That she thought to bring inside 
What five letters spelled apocalypse she asked me 

I won her over saying 
Oh she smiled and we both knew that she misjudged me 
Oh Marie it was so easy 
To fall in love with you 
It felt almost like a home of swords or something 

And you would keep the warhead 
Missile silo good as knew 
And watched you with my thumb above the button 


Then one night you found me 
In my army issue cot 
And you told me of your flash of inspiration 

You said fusion was the broken heart 
Thatís lonelyís only thought 
And all night long you drove me wild with your equations 

Oh Marie do you remember 
All the time we used to take 
Making love and then ransack the rations 

I think about you leaving now 
In the avalanche cascades 
My eyes get washed away in chain reactions 



Oh Marie if you would stay 
Then we could stick pins in the map 
Of all the places where you thought that love would be found 

But I would only need one pin 
To show where my loveís at 
In a top secret location 300 feet under the ground 

Oh we could hold each other close 
And stay up every night 
Looking up into the dark like itís the night sky 

Pretend this giant missile 
Is an old oak tree instead 
And carve our names and hearts into the warhead 


Oh Marie thereís something tells me 
Things just wont work out at all 
That our love would live a half-life on the surface 

So at night while your are sleeping 
I hold you closer just because 
As our time grows short I get a little nervous 

So I think about the big one 
Would we ever really care the world had ended? 

Your could hold me here forever 
Like youíre holding me tonight 
I think about that big red button and Iím tempted
