about

originally recorded for the 2016 Truman ep. It has been re-recorded, remixed, and re-mastered for Life Aggressively.

lyrics

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
became 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, and genetic abnormalities plagued generations thereafter
what did you gain as a result of their destruction, this deception?
Just one hundred and sixty seven
souls to haunt you forever.
this was for the good of all mankind?
