In 2011 a nuclear plant in Fukushima, Japan got fatally damaged by a tsunami wave of 13 meters which overwhelmed the 10 meter plant’s seawall. It created the biggest nuclear disaster ever on our planet Earth. “How can we be so stupid” to build a nuclear plant so close to the sea, in a tsunami prone area, with the sole protection of a 10-meter wall? As a consequence our children and their children will be living in radioactive waste for hundreds of years.
In October 2008, following the bankruptcies of Lehman Brothers and Washington Mutual, The Dow Jones Industrial Average falls 777.68 points. Is the biggest financial collapse in the history of Wall Street.“How can we be so foolish” to trust the bankers again and again? Yet again we are naive to beg the solution from the people who created the problem.

I don’t know why humans can be so dumb

Making the same mistakes, again and again

We should’ve known 
the risk of playing too close to the edge

Remember what mama said: 
you’re bound to stumble and fall

Some people find it hard to sleep

Others pray for their soul to keep

Buring their heads in the sand 
while filling their pockets at the bank


So stupid
How can we live in a world run by greedy men?

So foolish
Selling out our children’s lives again and again

How can we be so stupid to let them win
how can we be so foolish


I don’t know why humans can be so dumb

Making the same mistakes, again and again


I don’t know how 
people can turn a blind eye for profit

They build empires on the backs of the poor

Just to have a little more

So stupid
How can we live in a world run by greedy men?

So foolish
Selling out our children’s lives again and again

How can we be so stupid to let them win?


How can we live in a world run by greedy men?

So foolish
Selling out our children lives again and again

Stupid
How can we be so stupid to let them win?

How could we be so foolish to let them win?

How can we be so stupid
so foolish?
