They’re always there high in the skies...
Nagasaki nightmare
Pretty as a picture in the generals’ eyes
They’ve done it once, they’ll do it again
They’ll shower us all in the deadly rain

Fishing children fish in the Imperial Waters
Sons and lovers, lovers and daughters
Cherry blossom hanging on the cherry blossom tree
Flash, blinding flash, then there’s nothing to see

Dying they’re still dying, one by one
Darkness in the land of the land of the rising sun
Lesson learnt the lesson? No, cos no one really cares
It’s so easy to be silent just t cover up your fears

So they die in the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare
And die in the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare
So they die in the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare
And live in the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare
Will you stand by and let it happen again?
Nightmare death in the deadly rain

Live in the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare
And die in the nightmare, nightmare, nightmare
Nightmare comes in deadly rain
Nightmare, nightmare, nightmare rain

Manmade power, manmade pain
Deadly rain, deadly rain
They’ll do it again, shower us in rain
Deadly, deadly, deadly rain
Nagasaki nightmare

    General Commentof course its about the bombings of nagasaki and hiroshima, and all the horrible after affects...
    but also the horrible invention that is the atom bomb, its one of those things that everyone wishes they could uninvent
