Lyrics:

Do unto others,
As they've done to you,
But what the hell is,
This world coming to.

Blow the universe,
Into nothingness,
Nuclear warfare,
Shall lay us to rest.

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear
We all shall die

Time is like a fuse, 
Short and burning fast,
Armageddon's here,
Like said in the past 

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear

Soon to fill our lungs,
The hot winds of death,
The gods are laughing,
So take your last breath 

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear

Fight fire with fire x8
Fight!
