Like a good friend, the shadow from the landfill
Visits my house everyday.
The glow from the reactor
Keeps me warm at night,
And I always felt safe.
That was yesterday,
And now they're telling me...

That you've exposed me to your sickness,
And I know it's just a song,
But you can take it and you can stick it
Where the fucking sun don't shine,
'Cause it don't round here no more,
And lately I've been inclined
To strike a few different chords
With no apologies.

We're going down, we're going down,
With best regards from Turkey Point.
We're going down, we're going down,
With best regards from Turkey Point.
We're going down, we're going down,
With best regards from Turkey Point.
We're going down, we're going down,
With best regards from Turkey Point.

You raped the land and sea and sky,
And now it's us that you exploit.

And I know I shouldn't drink the water,
Or breath too deeply anymore.
A stench settles on Princeton
When it rains sometimes,
And it's absorbed
Into every pore.
And they're telling me...

That you've exposed me to your sickness,
And I know it's just a song,
But you can take it and you can stick it
Where the fucking sun don't shine,
'Cause it don't round here no more,
And lately I've been inclined
To strike a few different chords
With no apologies.

We're going down, we're going down,
With best regards from Turkey Point.
We're going down, we're going down,
With best regards from Turkey Point.
We're going down, we're going down,
With best regards from Turkey Point.
We're going down, we're going down,
With best regards from Turkey Point.

You raped the land and sea and sky,
And now it's us that you exploit.

And still they offer no apology,
And they show no remorse.
The glow from the reactor
Chokes the stars at night,
And I know the source.
I know the source.
I know the source.

    General CommentWhat do you mean from? AAA are raising awareness for 'The Tooth Fairy Project'. For those who don't know, people who grew up near nuclear bomb testing sites and nuclear power plants can send in thier baby teeth for testing, as this radioactive Strontium 90 stuff is abosrbed by the teeth. By measuring the levels from various locations, they can then determine whether nuclear powerplants and weapons facilities are affecting the health of those that live around them.
