Dead Kennedys – Cesspools In Eden lyrics

Poison is bubbling
Beneath your dreamhome
Buried there years before

Kid runs in crying
From playing in the garden
"mommy, I burned my hands!"

"what's making our eyes so itchy? "
"don't rub 'emЎєthey'll swell up."

Oh oh oh oh
It's the big waste dump
Oh, yeah

We built your ticky-tacky houses
On landfill soil
To cover up a gift
We left you years before

Of toxic chemicals
And leaking gas
Just dig a little while,
You'll find our acid baths

Cesspools
In eden
Oozing awayЎ­

Groundwater's poisoned
Air stings like hell
The lines for doctors grow long

Over martinis
The company laughs
"we don't owe you one damn thing."

But what about all these fainting spells?
How'd you like a lick
From my open sores

And ohЎ­. Oh oh oh Ўє
Why are our babies stillborn?

A storage tank's leaking
It's about to explode
Why evacuate
When you can watch the fun

Nothing happens here
Get out the lawn chairs
We'll drink pink lemonade
And watch martinez burn

Cesspools
In eden
Oozing away
Cesspools in eden
Leak by the day

The land we sold you
Is right atop our acid pits
We fill them by the truckload
In the dead of night

There's thousands more toxic
Tips of the iceberg
We pay a little bribe
Or we just don't report them

And see what you getЎє
Cesspools
In eden
In eden
No accidentЎє
Just a little of our greed-fueled negligence

So you've found the proof why
Your cancer rate's shot up
But whatcha gonna do
When we've got all the cards

Times beach, rocky flats,
Love canal & bhopal
Merry christmas, hostages
From the folks who care

Cesspools in eden
Oozing away
Cesspools in eden
Leak by the day
Cesspools in eden
Have a nice day
