当時、歌詞の内容はともかく、大好きな曲でした。
21歳の時に聴いて、no nukes の中古レコードを購入。
歌詞を見ると、"your"atomic poison 。
当時は何も感じなかったけど。"our"じゃないんだね。という事を30年以上経過してから思ったんです。

Just give me the warm power of the sun.
Give me the steady flow of a waterfall.
Give me the spirit of living things as they return to clay.
Just give me the restless power of the wind.
Give me the comforting glow of a wood fire.
But please take all of your atomic poison power away.

Everybody needs some power I’m told to shield them from the darkness and the cold.
Some may see a way to take control when it’s bought and sold.

I know that lives are at stake yours and mine and our descendants in time.
There’s so much to gain, so much to lose everyone of us has to choose.

Just give me the warm power of the sun.
Give me the steady flow of a waterfall.
Give me the spirit of living things as they return to clay.
Just give me the restless power of the wind.
Give me the comforting glow of a wood fire.
But please take all of your atomic poison power away.
Won’t you do this for me?
Take all of your atomic poison power
Take all of your atomic poison power
Take all of your atomic poison power Away.

By John hall "Power"
