Mike Oldfield described his song, Nuclear, like this: "I was always fascinated by my grandfather on my mother's side because I believe that his suffering in World War 1 was a lot to do with her problems, her psychological problems, when, you know, when she gave birth to me. Nuclear was like a powerful way of expressing the desolation and devastation in that area. And of course it could also apply to be applicable to people now, there are great many unhappy people in the world, you know, those who've given up on life. We read about them all the time. It's like I make songs about, you know "lalala baby this" (but this song is) powerful stuff, you know? Sit up and listen stuff." The song was featured in the E3 2014 trailer for the stealth action video game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Nuclear - Mike Oldfield

Standing on the edge of the crater
Like the prophets once said
and the ashes are all cold now
No more bullets and the embers are dead
Whispers in the air tell the tales
Of the brothers gone
Desolation, devastation
What a miss we made, when it all went wrong

Watching from the edge of the circus
For the games to begin
Gladiators draw their swords
form their ranks for armageddon

I m nuclear
I m wild
I m breaking up inside
A heart of broken glass
Defiled
Deep inside
The abandoning child

Standing on the edge of the underworld
Looking at the abyss
and I m hoping for some miracle
To breakout to escape from all this
Whispers in the air tell the tales
of a life that s gone
Desolation, devastation
What a mess we made, when it all went wrong

I m nuclear
I m wild
I m breaking up inside
A heart of broken glass
Defiled
Deep inside
The abandoning child

I m nuclear
I m wild
I m breaking up inside
A heart of broken glass
Defiled
Deep inside
The abandoning child
