about

Seventy years ago, in 1945, the first atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. A few days later, a second bomb was dropped, this time annihilating the city of Nagasaki. These acts of war basically started off the nuclear arms race, and the cold war.
We decided to base this record around these bombings, and the events that preceded them.
As for the name of this record, Trinity was the codename of the top-secret US project that lead to the development of the bombs.

Track Name: Little Boy
Lyrics:

Falling from the sky
Reflecting the sunlight
So long Little Boy
Scorch this hostile land
Floating through the air
Ashes everywhere
Nameless on a breeze

A power from Gods denied
Unleashed on the world, so bright
Is this a triumph of man?
Were we meant to understand
The forces of nature we bent
Will we release it again?

Hotter than the sun
No place left to run
Burning flesh from bone
Hell is now your home

A power from Gods denied
Unleashed on the world, so bright
Is this a triumph of man?
Were we meant to understand
The forces of nature we bent
Will we release it again?
Track Name: Radium Girl
Lyrics:

This morning after you had left I cleaned the bed
My sheets were full of hair fallen off your balding head

I kiss your toothless mouth, I lick your swollen cheeks
I love you baby, even more since you got weak
You're a blistered freak, some people say we're quite a sight
But when I draw the curtains you shine like candlelight

Radium Girl
You're my Radium Girl

My heart beats in my throat, my geigercounter ticks
As you limp through the room while leaning on your stick

I know you should be taken to the nearest hospital
But I'd rather keep you here, let's drink and have a ball
Let's sit down and count the hours while you draw your last breath
I'll take you in my arms and rock you 'till you're dead.

Radium Girl
You're my Radium Girl
Track Name: Trinity
Lyrics:

That cursed morning
a mushroom cloud was rising
way down in New Mexico

we saw the lightflash
and trembled in the shockwave
stricken by the afterglow

Witnesses of Trinity (x2)

The detonation
of what we called The Gadget
started the atomic age

That damned morning
a fireball was rising
way down in New Mexico

Witnesses of Trinity (x2)
Track Name: Nagasaki
Lyrics:

They walk through the streets like mindless zombies
Their clothes melted on their naked flesh
Eyes are falling down from orbital cavities
While faces are mutilated by a devastating heat

Buildings destroyed, no place for shelter
Only the cathedral half standing
A mother trying to protect her newborn son
While her arms nothing but a worthless stump

A fearless man seeks for his wife
Only to find her severed-head body
The endless terror of never ending wars
Where peace seems a word without meaning

Victims of war
A tragedy for life
A mark of brutality
A signature unreal

Victims of war
A tragedy for life
A mark of brutality
A signature of insanity
