Shonen Knife

Shonen Knife, written in Japanese as 少年ナイフ, which transliterates as Shōnen Naifu, literally "Boy Knife," is an all-female Japanese pop-punk band formed in Osaka, Japan, in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups, pop bands, The Beach Boys, and early punk rock bands, such as the Ramones, the trio crafts stripped-down songs expressing infectious melodies and simplistic, exuberant lyrics sung both in Japanese and English. more »

Since 1970, standing alone on a northern hill
Waiting steadily for time to move
Since 1970, a shining face, 60 feet tall
Looking out at the distance impassively 
The sun can't shine on all creatures
There's a sunny place cause there's the shade
Sun can't shine on all creatures
There's a sunny place cause there's the shade 

Tower of the sun When do you start to move
Tower of the sun When do you start to move 

Since 1970, he's had two wings on his back
Standing in the sun with open wings
Since 1970, his body's painted red & white
What does he symbolize? Nobody knows 

The sun can't shine on all creatures
There's a sunny place cause there's the shade
Sun can't shine on all creatures
There's a sunny place cause there's the shade 

Tower of the sun When do you start to move
Tower of the sun When do you start to move
Tower of the sun When do you start to move
Tower of the sun When do you start to move
