Default The Atom Bomb And The Fire It Makes

The Atom Bomb And The Fire It Makes


I will radiate the sun light

this is a common case of overexpression

The distance between the atom bomb

and the fire it makes

is decreasing at an alarming rate

The common phrase

"The truth will set us all free"

does not apply here

without a second opinion

we set fire to all the oxygen in the room

in our hearts the distance between the atom bomb

and the fire it makes

is as close as the river is to sunlight

Is it a poem is it a song it's super short. Sounds a little weird to me: what is the meaning behind the distance? Was this inspired by U2? Man I have more questions than answers!

It's nothing to do with U2. Just because it mentions the words 'Atom' and 'Bomb' doesn't mean that it was inspired by U2. It is good, not one of your best but still good. I like the 'moving faster at an alarming rate' line. Fits in perfectly with the song. I do agree with Crashing Sun on the last line though, that is a bit baffling.

the last line was sort of forced I guess.
