Bruce Cockburn – Radium Rain lyrics

========
They're hosing down trucks at the border under a rainbow sign
The raindrops falling on my head burn into my mind
On a hillside in the distance there's a patch of green sunshine
Ain't it a shame
Ain't it a shame
About the radium rain
Everyday in the paper you can watch the numbers rise
No such event can overtake us here, we're much too wise
In the meantime don't eat anything that grows and don't breathe when the cars
Go by
Ain't it a shame
Ain't it a shame
About the radium rain
Big motorcycle rumbles out of the rain like some creation of mist
There's a man on a roof with a blindfold on and a hand grenade in his hand
I walk stiff, with teeth clenched tight filled with nostalgia for a clean
Wind's kiss
Ain't it a shame
Ain't it a shame
About the radium rain
A flock of seagulls writes something in the sky in a language I can't under-
Stand
God's graffiti - but it don't say why so much evil seems to land on man
When everyone I meet just wants to live and love and get along as best they can
Ain't it a shame
Ain't it a shame
About the radium rain
==========
