Atom bomb, TNT
New disease, poor city
Flying over Hiroshima, 1945
The city looks small from way up here
I wonder who'll survive

Atom bomb, TNT
New disease, poor city
A blinding flash hotter than the sun
Dead bodies lie across the path
The radiation colors the air
Finishing one by one

Atom bomb, TNT
New disease, poor city

Atom bomb

    General CommentAmerican Govorment had used two atomic bombs and killed alot of poeple to make Japan accept their treaty.
    But, Japanese Goverment had started the war.Perl Harbor.
    War had just gotten started by their govorments.
    In America, In Japan, In both countries,
    all of their citizenes , no one want to kill anyone by war except brainwashed people.
    Govorment's fault.
    We have to kill people by war for some people in the govorment.
    Sad.
    People who tell, People who listen to, they just have same system of mind as human.
    People who listen to hold their Identities by listening and agreeing to what people who tell told.
    But, How do people who tell hold their identites?
    The answer is worship themselves I think.
    They listen to thoughts in their mind.
    and just feel they are completely right.
    and tell it to people as the thoughts and feel they are great.
    then go mad. like nazi.
    sad.
    Just sad.
    anyway, I'm a japanese.
    SOrry for my bad English.

    General Commentthis song was written by mike ness in history class right before he dropped out of school. He failed the class though but made a great song talking about a person in war going to the front lines.

    General CommentHah, I can picture teenage Mike Ness sitting in the back of history class, bored, wearing a Ramones shirt, and scribbling the lyrics to this in his notebook. xD
