Lyrics

We are the warriors of the sun
Fighting post-war battles that somehow never got won
It may be crazy or it may be the final run
We are the warriors of the sun

Say we feed the hungry and we tend to the sick
Say that we're always around when the going gets thick
Say we'll carry off the evil and your weary ones
Say we are the warriors of the sun

It's true about no more water but the fire next time
Will the children of the eighties be ashes or discover their prime
We don't heed the Nobel laureate warning 'bout things to come
Or the incinerated warriors of the sun

New York guardian angels, you all right?
No one's gonna violate Ronnie on the subway tonight
Smile as a child and then you buried your gun
Another couple of thousand warriors of the sun

In the ghetto by any other name she remains the same
Now more than ever survival is the name of the game
Prove that you're truly needy by eating dinner from a dog food can
One of these days, the apple's gonna hit the fan

We are the warriors of the sun
Fighting post-war battles that somehow never got won
It may be crazy or it may be the final run
We are the warriors of the sun
We are the warriors of the sun
We are the warriors of the sun
