The Lyrics

Since the end of WW2 and the atomic bombings, Japan's armed forces fall under "Self-Defense" per their constitution. But since the collapse of the FSU and with on-going tensions with both China and North Korea, the US and West have been putting pressure on Japan to drop the SD role and play an active military part in foreign policies that include a missile defense shield on their soil to intercept missiles bound for the US. Internally, Japanese society is divided between those that want to stick to a pacifist way and those that want to fully arm their military and expand internationally into foreign conflicts. The Japanese are disputing China and Russia over islands lost postwar as well as loathing the threat of missiles from N Korea. The new PM is for increased defense spending and scrapping the SD portion of the constitution. Inevitably, like Germany, Japan will take a more active role outside of their borders.
Tough road for Japan
The Self-Defense Forces can’t meet demands
North Korean threats, Chinese lust for islands
Time to discard the postwar Constitution

Tough road for Japan
Rearmament and nukes are planned
Missile placement to defend US mainland
Time to discard the postwar Constitution

Tough road for Japan
“Older generation must discard the old ways,”
the PM demands
Insisting that Japan has a role to play
A new day, for defense of PACRIM*

The Self-Defense Forces can’t meet demands
North Korean threats, Chinese lust for islands
Time to discard the postwar Constitution



*PACRIM= Pacific Rim
