Track Name: Even Europeans Wear Blue Jeans
I don't like it, I don't like it, I don't like it,
I don't care

Made my way past that red glare and your bellicose policy:
"If you want it, try and take it", that's a cherry anthem if you're siding with me

So if your blue jeans reveal the way that really you feel, why shouldn't they?
It's where you're from, it's your geophilosophy
You say there's plenty of gm to go around, but it looks stretched thin to me
So I'm sorry for looking down and I'm sorry for feeling green

but I like it, yeah I like it, yeah I like it
yeah I care

Deliberations by a league of nations designed to fix the tragedy
all together they could not't save one tiny island and its family

The all the best are found in your seaside towns shoring up your beliefs
you built them up from the water, reconstructed every piece
the moral dilemmas of thinking fellas melt away with the rising sea
you know my body really wanted to it was my heart that just couldn't leave

she's gone away, gone away to the city
Track Name: Dawn on the Beach
The curves on the water pass straight through her hand
she's unaware of the dangers in the sand
This braided daughter she pulls back the time
back to when this place was ek and ni

As the new age dawns, cover your eyes
As the new Dawn comes, just as natural

Off in the distance, she hardly seems real
as she stretches up into the sky
This beautiful daughter with the suit split in two
And the scar from the necklace that she wore

As the new age dawns, cover your eyes
As the new Dawn comes, just as natural

Birth of a new age in the guise of industry
As the ashes drift into our tea

It's four in the morning, I wake you up
I can't wait to see the sun rise in your eyes
I swear the sun she rose in the eastern sky
Track Name: Slow Evolving Fact
Can't you see what's been going on?
Can't you see what's been going on?

With twice the heart anyone could foresee
you showed us your penchant for war and peace
it was a beautiful dawn it was awful dream
when you came around

Can't you see what's been going on?
Can't you see what's been going on?

Since dropped your hint into the middle of the sea
Awakened the dragon that destroys the cities
with the fists like gorillas and the heart of a whale
what an inspired tale

Back in Misaki, we all shied away from the science you bring
Reading our novels, we found our perspective, detached as orphan kids
We bear your inventions each and every day
Still you deign to think that we're better off

Now you see what's been going on
Now you see what's been going on

Here's the two three four five facts that you need
just to make good decisions, to know what it feels like
to hold our cities in the palm of your hand
you still don't understand
Track Name: Lucky Dragon #5 (Daigo Fukuryū Maru)
In a sea of red we were alright
future not too dim, future not to bright
Sea spray in my face
salt on my lips
yeah I admit I already spent the fish
when I closed my eyes
cheeks warmed by the skies
I must be dreaming up this freakin half-life

I caught my share, I even bought a bike
I had pretty two daughters, and a lovely my wife
But she don't understand the scales on my hands
or the rocking waves that call me away
I promise I'll be home, but then I leave her alone
but I'll be back to claim my half-wife

We just called her Daigo at the Cross Spikes
drinking heavy water getting into fights
What the hell did I drink
My knees are starting to sink
I've never seen Aichiko look so green
I stagger 'cross the deck, my eyes burn as I check
for fires in this horror of a half-life
Track Name: Shame, Shame, Shame
Shame shame shame!
Shame shame shame!

When you start with a bad name, it can only get worse
When you try to do the right thing, you're bound to get burned

The checks that you write to me are larger every year
But when it's all said and done, they don't seem to pay the bills
How can you put a price tag on a good life vaporized
Better ask yourself and then ask yourself again,
what is wrong and what is right
Shame shame shame!
Shame shame shame!

God was a soldier tell you what I mean
cause only a devil dog could improvise such an awful thing

And Jesus was a demon
you wanna know how I know
cause a father and a holy spirit
would never let that little boy go

The checks that you write to me got more zeros every year
But when it's all said and done, they don't seem to pay the bills
How can you put a price tag on a good life vaporized
Better check yourself better check yourself again,
before someone sets you right

I'm a fire truck, I'm a little red bike
trailing my hose behind
I love the thrill if I abhor all the killings I see
They keep telling me this world doesn't need
is another soldier coming home with half a brain
But Reverend McKay sends his girls to the front just the same
They keep telling me what this world don't need
is another solo painted on after the bridge

The war is the bridge!

Put your hands together
for the greatest oaf in the room
Don't know much, don't got much to answer to, yeah right
He's just trying to do the best he can do
Can't we find a little peace and love in this world
Why can't nobody tell the truth?
We just want to live together
Well don't you
