[Verse 1]
N.C
Multi-million dollar exploration into space,
N.C
While in the name of progress this planet's laid to waste,
N.C
Nation takes on nation and is stepping up the pace,

And someone's got his finger on(the button).

We're running in a race we can only lose.

East is East and West is West and only one shall eat,
N.C
The microchip has come of age and man is obsolete,
N.C
And someone's got his finger on(the button).
