Citizen Fish – Meltdown lyrics

Once upon a time - this is almost true
When the sun came out for a day or two
It would beat the war to the top of the news
- This'll make no sense in 2102
When the antiques show where the river once flowed
And your gran remembers having no suntan at all - and waterfalls
Where did the waterfalls go?
Welcome to the meltdown

Amazing how close to total collapse
It gets when you have to turn off the taps
And the plastic surgery starts to crack
And no you can't have your money back
Not sure where it went but it's all been spent
On carbon-based industrial waste recall - but it's all too late
Where did the oxygen go?
Welcome to the meltdown

Want ice with that? Well i'll draw you a map
To the tourist resort on the polar cap
Where the drinks-included menu states
Make the most of it before it's too late
One drop at a time on a slow decline
We had it all figured out
One drop at a time on a slow decline
And then the water ran out
