Hey little darling
There's something that you should know
This things gonna hound every soul
This thing they won't let us go
Gonna break us down to nothing
Gonna eat us from the inside out
Hey little darling
I don't want you to feeling the fallout

Ah when the cancer finally took him
I was watching the trucks pull in
Me and your daddy we had a job
Under the ground mining uranium
Some things your daddy leaves you
Some things he don't
Some things are gonna be here anyhow
And some things just won't
One thing I want you to understand
Is you ain't gotta be no mining man
I curse the day that I went down
And I pulled that shit out of the ground

Now we were living over in nevada
That's where your people come from
Your grandma would take me and your daddy
On down to the gunnery range
We sit and watch the bombs blow
Until the sun goes down
All those colors running like the painted desert
And you get to see it now

Them government boys have something so damn secret
They had to hide it in the desert sand
Out there the skies so big
And there ain't no mistaking it
Whose got the winning hand

Ah
Ah ah ah ah

I said I've been all the way to alaska
To a town they call point of hope
Where they took some of what we got down here
Just to see how it would grow
I hear the lichen bought it
And now it's running through the caribou
I said soon little darling
You'll get to feel it too
Get to feel it too
Oh I said soon little darling
You'll get to feel it to
Hmm hmm hmm yeah
Oh yeah hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm
Oh yeah hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm
