We were working secretly
For the military
Our experiment in sound
Was nearly ready to begin
We only know in theory
What we are doing

Music made for pleasure
Music made to thrill
It was music we were making here until

They told us
All they wanted
Was a sound that could kill someone
From a distance
So we go ahead
And the meters are over in the red
It's a mistake in the making

From the painful cries of mothers
To the terrifying scream
We recorded it and put it into our machine

And they told us
All they wanted
Was a sound that could kill someone
From a distance
So we go ahead
And the meters are over in the red
It's a mistake in the making

It could feel like falling in love
It could feel so bad
But it could feel so good
It could sing you to sleep

I'll bet my mum's gonna give me a little toy instrument

But that dream is your enemy

We won't be there to be blamed
We won't be there to snitch
I just pray that someone there
Can hit the switch

But they told us
All they wanted
Was a sound that could kill someone
From a distance
So we go ahead
And the meters are over in the red
It's a mistake we've made

Hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm
And the public are warned to stay off
