What would you do if you had just 30 seconds to Save The World?
On September 26, 1983, the planet came terrifyingly close to a Nuclear Holocaust.
The old Soviet Union’s missile attack early warning system displayed that the US had launched nuclear missiles and they were headed toward the Soviet Union. The officer on duty, Soviet Lt. Col. Stanislav Petrov had to make a fast decision: Would he report an incoming American strike and trigger World War Three by setting in motion a Soviet retaliatory strike or would he hold fire and reason it must be a mistake? Fortunately for us he disobeyed protocol, concluded it must be a mistake and was eventually proven right when it turned out to be the suns relection on clouds.
This song is about Stanislav have recurring dreams of those fateful seconds when what must have been a rather mundane and repetitive life suddenly got very real!
