Nuclear-powered Fear


They say, to enjoy the modern life, you need nuclear.
Oh, it’s safe and clean so don’t worry, my dear.
But, when encountering the things that happen every hundred years,
They would say, well, there is still something not so sure and clear.

It’s nuclear-powered fear,
Not new but quite near.
It’s nuclear-powered fear,
So nude, so clear.

They say, to make the world developed, you need nuclear,
And, we’ve got enough knowledge and technology, my dear.
But, when tests by Mother Nature bring people some tears,
They would say, well, there is still something we may have to hear.

It’s nuclear-powered fear,
Not new but quite near.
It’s nuclear-powered fear,
So nude, so clear.

There is still something not so sure and clear.
There is still something we may have to hear.
There is still something not so sure and clear.
There is still something we may have to hear.
