In this story, it all begins with Trinity,
In just three days the Little Boy became Fat Man
God bless science, we’re good to go
Kamikazes are at death’s door

Potsdam and Manhattan project,
What are the justifications,
Where are the phycisists, where are the engineers?
Who picked out the targets, who voted on the time?

A necessary evil, really?
Just a dot on the map
The work of Great Artists

Save our sons’ souls at all costs,
Or threaten the Forces for good,
Justify the billions or simply be a fool,
The reasons are unclear, the fire is mighty

Now the black rain pours on the waste
Atomic pest, the brand new curse.
Hiroshima my love, this is one of a kind,
Welcome to the atomic age, hope you enjoy

A necessary evil, really?
They just look all the same
Nobody can count them

Why in Nagasaki?
Forever in the flesh

Maybe Harry is happy
Fat man and the little boy have blown our dream away
Rain of ruin from the air
Like never on this earth
Do not forget the day.
