I'm a japanophile. Ever was. When the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crissis in Fukushima came, I was glued at the screen, pressing refresh all the time. My Japanese teacher even had parents in Fukushima, so the thing has grown more personal.

In addition to that, I got a bad lung inflammation. I had fever for two weeks without break. I was at the bottom of my strength.

During a night, I had illusions from fever, where I saw my body was one with the reactor of the struck power plant. As I was fighting for my health, so was Fukushima, in my mad vision.

When I got better, the experience left me with a feel for a song. No specific motive, just the thing to express.

As I was contemplating on it, the first thing that came was Go ahead / don't stop with its all possible meanings from utopically positive to horrifying…

Lyrics

There's enough of us to make ends meet When the Sun is rising, reflects in the sea, Infinity in front of me is to be seen. A glimpse of what the mirror reveals And I like what it shows me. And my hair caresses me on my shoulders Let me go ahead, let me take what's there for me. Breathing the air Filling my lungs Fully in, fully out, what a feel! Go ahead don't stop Chilling looks all around silent faces sense of wrong. Partial meltdown. What do they mean? contamination is this for real? Evacuation ... too late Go ahead don't stop The air had filled my lungs an old and wrinkled face is in the mirror now, skin opens, pus flows out. Pieces of flesh lie in my footsteps, the bones twist and crook. Pressure in my skull, eyeballs flop, stay hanging down. My blood boils inside. The effects progress... and they Go ahead don't stop
