lyrics

Sometimes at night I think about
The islands of japan
Hiroshima and Nagasaki
And which one I am

And if I am an island
In the middle of the sea
Then you must be the careful god
That dropped the bomb on me

And it's harder
To start over
When nobody cares
When your friends are out of contact
And your parents are still right here
And isn't it weird
That the end of the world
Seems more like the start
The lonely parts

Baptised inside the soot
And an ocean full of kids
I watched myself inside the smoke
I watched with no eyelids
And when the bomb had dropped
Did all the people start to cheer
For every man that's made of ash
There were a thousand tears

And it's harder
To start over
When nobody cares
When your friends are out of contact
And your parents are still right here
And isn't it weird
That the end of the world
Seems more like the start
The lonely parts
