Track Name: i am become death
The light of one thousand suns, burns your name across the morning sky. Basking in it's splendor, staggered by it's majesty, theoretical physicists laughed and cried. In a small way, I too assumed that all of you felt the same. Never mind quantum tunneling and field theory. Forget theories of electrons and positrons. There is no time for us to worry, about molecular wave functions. Did you believe that ratting out all of your friends would wipe your conscience clean? Naming names and red baiting were clever ways to restore your reputation. Burying yourself in theories of black holes and neutron stars will temporarily cover up your past's deep scars. What if colitis had taken your life? What if you had fallen in love with mineralogy? You would not have had to become death, or had to mask your regret. Instead we would read of a twentieth century Al Biruni.
Track Name: the destroyer of worlds
one good look at your resume and it's obvious why many say, "he was a good and kind man. he was a true humanitarian." rebuilding europe one brick at a time. feeding west berliners tons of yummy food. containing communism don't mention vietnam. desegregating the armed forces, diversity. any president would kill for these accomplishments. more than likely all of that will be for not. boys and girls rarely remember what they are taught. your good deeds can never be unwritten. your true legacy might be justified by history. preparing us to destroy more completely, every productive enterprise created. expect a rain of ruin from the sky the likes of which have not been seen on this earth. these words will never let your conscience sleep as you become the destroyer of worlds. the greatest marvel the world has ever seen is scorched earth and blankets of ash. the greatest achievement of organized science in history drew the lines where angels relinquish their wings and devil's continue to do great things. crossing these lines halos and horns interchange all of the time. any president would kill for your accomplishments, except for one.
Track Name: truman's curse
you used their faith for your political gain.
told relocation was for the good of all mankind.
they believed everything is in the hands of god.
a god that would leave them to perish and starve.

the dreams of bikinians came to an abrupt end, when operation crossroads was born from u.s. sin. the world of peace you had hoped for is global destruction starting on bikini's shores.
you promised them support, you promised them protection. instead you delivered an island full of radioactive contamination. dangerous levels of strontium-90 riddled their bones with cancer. stillbirths, miscarriages, genetic abnormalities plagued generations thereafter. what did you gain as a result of their destruction? just one hundred and sixty-seven souls to haunt you forever.

this was for the good of all mankind?
