about

忘れない。あの日のことを。福島を忘れない。

lyrics

Melting March 11

march 11th.
since then everything has changed.
before that we were innocent and lived
as if nuclear power stations would never have accidents.
the rumble, the roar, escaping steam, the explosion.
how far does the radiation spread?

plutonium reigns for a thousand ages
until small pebbles are forged into
huge rocks and moss grows over them all

(these lines are based on the Japanese national anthem)

once upon a time
there was a country called Japan
the mountains and the sea were beautiful there
one day there was an earthquake
and a nuclear power station exploded
the leaders said "don't worry, we will not be affected".
the TV said the same.
so the children played outside.

メルトダウン311

311全てが変わった
昔は、無邪気な気がしたけど、
決して事故などないかのように
グラグラ、ガタガタ、モクモク、
シューシュー、ハラハラ、ドカーン
広がる放射能どこまで

プルトニュームは、千代に八千代に
さざれ石の 巌となりて 
苔のむすまで、苔のむすまで
終わらない

昔昔、あるところに日本という国がありました
海も山も美しい国でした
ある日地震がきて原発が爆発しました
偉い人たちは 大丈夫といいました
テレビも新聞もそう言いました。
直ちに影響はないと言いました。
だから、子供たちは外で遊びました。
