24 miles Fukushima
(Music by Burt Bacharach, sung by Gene Pitney as 24 hours from Tulsa)

Dearest Darling you had a right to say that the earth had moved, was it war?
Cause something happened to you while you were staying home
And you're not the same anymore

The sign said only 24 miles Fukushima
Oh only a short way away from the core

I saw a hideous light, an eerie glow in the night
And that is where I saw you
A tidal wave had dropped a small hotel and there you were
And so I walked up to you
Asked where I could get something to eat and you said nowhere

The sign said only 24 miles Fukushima
Oh only a short way away from the core

The geiger went beserk it clicked madly all day
I said 'no way'

The sign said only 24 miles Fukushima
Oh only a short way away from the core

The sirens started to play and daytime turned into night
Atoms were dancing, wildly
All of a sudden they lost control, the core melted down
The gas escaped, exploded
We thought we'd die before we got out of that evil town

The sign said only 24 miles Fukushima
Oh only a short way away from the core

Reactors do this to you
Fall out kills more than a few
What can they do?
And you can never, never, never go home again
