    Song MeaningJapanese Modernist
    Go Mad
    Japanese Modernist

    Why is only that country strong?(3x)*
    Why only that country?**

    That day I flew above the rubble and debris
    an eternally indestructible hedonist
    I'll switch on and fly today too
    Say goodbye to the weak me (bye bye)
    Now advance forward, boy!
    Now grasp your ambitions, boy!
    Steadily fix your eyes forward
    Everyone's sky-high, now please go die.

    Japanese Modernist
    Go Mad
    Japanese Modernist

    Sea! Sun! The ends of the Earth! That sky!
    Can you hear it? (x3)
    My voice

    Father! Mother! Younger Sister! Younger Brother!
    Can you hear it? (x3)
    My voice

    Sea! Sun! The ends of the Earth! That sky!
    Can you hear it? (x3)
    My voice

    *Note above romanization should read tsuyoi
    **In uncensored/live versions this line is replaced with "Naze Amerika dake?" meaning "Why only America?"

    My InterpretationMerry is associated with the Angura-Kei movement. One of the primary focuses of the movement is on what it means to be post-war Japanese. As such, angura-kei artists tend to have a bit of nationalism/isolationism as well as a bit of Anti-Americanism (as the events of WWII and Japanese reconstruction by the American government caused irreversible changes to Japanese culture as a whole).
    I personally believe that the use of atomic weapons was a bad move on our part, and have a great deal of sympathy for any civilization that is forced to reinvent itself under wartime/invasive pretenses. However it should be made clear that this song (as well as those of many other angura artists) is Anti-American in sentiment and is essentially a call to arms for the "Japanese Modernist."
    Now, this doesn't mean that Japan is gonna bomb us back at any point (after all, angura means "underground"), but just remember that 60 years doesn't clean the slate.
