Atomic Waste

From the album Draw The Line Buy Now

 

Cho: Atomic waste, perseveres

It sticks around, (in dangerous form!)

Two hundred thousand years!! (Repeat)

 

It boils in vats stored underground

It’s got to be watched all year round

And human beings can make mistakes

One little slip is all it takes!

Chorus

 

We don’t mind, if lights are low

If TV’s off, if cars go slow

We’ll do without, so cut the juice!

There’s no excuse, to cook our goose!!

Chorus

 

Well we won’t fuss, tho we just heard

We missed our bus, to Harrisburg!

Now we’re not scared, to breathe the air

Cause we signed up, for Medicare!!

Chorus

 

The Pentagon is full of nuts!

They claim that they, protect our butts

But bomb research, has atomic waste

Ten times more, than reactors make!!

Chorus

 

We can’t buy life, when poisons spread

Our money can’t, buy back the dead

We’re born to live, with Mother Earth

We should respect how much she’s worth!!

Chorus
