They took away my garden
To make room for a chemical plant
I feel my country's arteries harden
With the aid of a government grant
Chorus:
We are not a bunch of upstarts
Just out l
ooking for a cause
We hunger for our justice
And not applause
We don't just make peace signs and meditate
We don't take this thing as a joke
We just want to relate - we're in a pretty bad state
And we don't want to go up in smoke
My water has got cancer
And the rivers have all dried
While I watch my country practice
Nuclear suicide
Chorus
Don't think it's impossible
To see this thing come clean
We're going to save this poor old world's head
From the guillotine
Chorus/Solo
They took away my garden
(My water has got cancer)
To make room for a chemical plant
(And the rivers have all dried)
I feel my country's arteries harden
(While I watch my country practice)
Nuclear suicide
Chorus
Oh Lord, we don't want to see our children go up in smoke
