Here’s some cheery Finnish music for thursday: Ultra Bra - Kahdeksanvuotiaana (At the age of eight). It sure sounds happy and the lyrics, well… 

At the age of eight I knew
That world will get destroyed
In a duel of the superpowers

At the age of eight I knew
That the man will get crushed
In a blink of an eye into history

Chorus:
But it turned out
That wars are  
Complex national conflicts
Where there is shooting
And where a few people die at once

At the age of eight I knew
That world will get destroyed
At a duel of the superpowers

At the age of eight I was searching
On the map for a distant place
That would avoid the fallout.

—Chorus—

Wearing my sneakers and a hoodie
Frowning
I found Easter Islands in the Pacific Sea

Later it turned out that exactly on that sea
Nuclear tests are performed
Where the Easter Islands are
