Thank God for the bomb. I shudder to think what the world would have been like without it keeping the tyrannical regimes of the world at bay. The bomb has done more for peace then all the pacifists of the world. And the smarter of them will admit it.

Rush - Manhattan Project

Imagine a time
When it all began in the dying days of a war
A weapon — that would settle the score
Whoever found it first
Would be sure to do their worst —
They always had before...

Imagine a man
Where it all began a scientist pacing the floor
In each nation — always eager to explore
To build the best big stick
To turn the winning trick —
But this was something more...

The big bang — took and shook the world
Shot down the rising sun
The end was begun — it would hit everyone
When the chain reaction was done
The big shots — try to hold it back
Fools try to wish it away
The hopeful depend on a world without end
Whatever the hopeless may say

Imagine a place
Where it all began
They gathered from across the land
To work in the secrecy of the desert sand
All of the brightest boys
To play with the biggest toys —
More than they bargained for...

Imagine a man
When it all began
The pilot of enola gay
Flying out of the shockwave
On that august day
All the powers that be
And the course of history
Would be changed for evermore...
