I wrote the original lyrics way back in 1984, inspired by numerous post-apocalyptic stories and films, including the Alfred Bester short story “Adam and no Eve”. Also, there was an element of satanism (this was after all the Eighties), which I completely erased from the revision in 2005.Zar


Lyrics

From the roads they all came / (Left) their broken cars behind Heading for the beaches / by cover of the night On the silent ocean / not a single boat in sight Running from their future / They were running out of time Women with their children / and men in uniform from some vanquished army / but neither side had won In the skies above the crowd / The sound was like a storm What remained of choices (then) / and hopes for them were gone

– Chorus: – Black beaches – unknown way Final victim – no place to stay (repeat)

(Guitar solo)

He crept out from a shelter / to the world that now was his The sand was scorched and blackened / as far as he could see Called out for the others / but everything was still He was the sole survivor / An Adam with no Eve

(Chorus)
