Hey, listen.
My dad is super great
He thought of this strongest sneeze
Departing Manhattan, it was humungous
From North to South, they'd be covered in saliva

I'm alright
I'll show you that I can fly across this sky without a parachute
I'll be a good kid, I can do this right
Even if we're far apart, keep believing in me

My dad carried me, and called me "God"
Crying or laughing, that I had them both
My brother is a little chubby
He ate everything without chewing, and became a mushroom

I won't cry
Even if I get drawn on this face, I'll show you all that I can laugh
I'll listen to what you say, I won't make a mistake
Even if we're far apart, keep believing in me

In return for your parental love,
I will present you with myself
I wonder if you'll be surprised
I will pass through the cotton candy
and become the sun
A dive into an enormous diorama

I'm alright
I'll show you that I can fly across this sky without a parachute
I'll be a good kid, I can do this right
Even if we're far apart, keep believing in me

In return for your parental love,
I will present you with myself
I wonder if you'll be surprised
I will pass through the cotton candy
and become the sun

Now that I think about it..
I have a request for you, Dad
I don't need anymore siblings
And don't forget me
I want you to promise me
"This day becomes the sunny weather This day becomes the sunny weather"
A dive into an enormous diorama

    General CommentThe bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are the obvious references. It's an interesting take, and I think it's Fat Man's voice. This is indicated by the title and the reference to his brother becoming a cloud first. The lyrics here are a bit dodgy, wareta.net/choubun/… is better.

    The childish references to the mushroom, cotton candy (clouds/sky), becoming the sun (the white flash an atom bomb makes) and diving into an enormous diorama (Nagasaki) are somewhat chilling. You can tell LM.C would support Nuclear Non-Proliferation by the last verse.

    I don't know why the bomb would be 'God'. But I think the father figure is Dr. Oppenheimer, and the entire first verse references his genius (it was that. It was also hugely destructive and sad) and the Manhattan Project, which was the project that developed the atom bomb. The continual laughing and crying reference is from his quote about the first successful trial -
    "Some people laughed, some people cried, most people were silent." atomicarchive.com/Movies/…
