Electric Funeral Lyrics
Reflex in the sky warn you you're gonna die
Storm coming, you'd better hide from the atomic tide
Flashes in the sky turns houses into sties
Turns people into clay, radiation minds decay
Robot minds of robot slaves lead them to atomic...

three flecks in the sky (like bombs in the distance)
reflex in the sky (which doesn't make sense)

i wouldnt read the lyrics in the same way. yes it is armageddon, but i think its more about human fault. the first verse is about war and how people kill each other, the second is about the government taking over peoples minds and repealing their freedom, and the last is about people who wave around solutions and quick fixes like many interpretors of religion do.

This song is obviously about Nuclear Armeggedon, a topic that would be covered by countless metal bands afterward. The first verse is about the actual bombing, the second is about the result that follows, and the last verse is about the aftermath (everybody goes to hell).

This song is about nuclear destruction. It was written by several young men who grew up in a town called Aston, and lived around the time of the cold war. Aston was a factory town. In world war II it was bombed persistently because of its ability to make and distribute supplies. This song is about the life they lived. The fear that overcame them. There you go.
I thing that this song is about the negative side of the scientific progress and how can it finally lead to the extinction of humanity. While the mankind keeps evolving, it will be destroyed by the machines it created for slaves.So, the song is about the danger of limitless research or something... Yap, defenatelly a song about the end of the world.
