"Harrisburg" as written by Martin Rotsey, Peter Gifford, Robert Hirst, James Moginie and Peter Garrett....
The empire rings
The umpire's not laughing
The President's resented,
The Ambassador's a night club
You cannot get it out

It's stuff you cannot taste or see
It's stuff you cannot smell
It's stuff that's twenty times as hot
As the hottest stuff in hell

Harrisburg, oh Harrisburg
The plant is melting down
The people out in Harrisburg
Are getting out of town
And when the stuff gets in
You cannot get it out

The company said it would not blow
The Government said it might
Harrisburg, Oh Harrisburg
I wonder who was right

Who can leave it behind,
The curtains are drawn
There's something I must say to you
You cannot get it out

    General CommentSeems pretty obvious to be about the Three Mile Island Nuclear reactor near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania which had a meltdown in 1979.
