A ticking time bomb in your back yard
An imminent threat so stay on guard
A statue of technology at it's peak
What took a year to build collapsed in a week

People dying, children crying
Buildings falling, flames are flying
Waste is spilling, shrapnel killing
Fumes escape and lungs are filling
Siren's wail, survival fails
Ashen rain combines with hail
Time to death, stolen breath
Life of pain for those left

A city overcome with toxic waste!
Mutant children spawned from this rotten place!
We're all fucked!

It's a countdown to nuclear meltdown
To poison the earth hundreds of feet underground
I'd rather float in sea of charred remains
Than walk with burning flesh and melted brains
