Irreducible is the word for today, plastic compounds and nuclear waste,
What the hell's the matter with the people on this planet?
Have we all gone insane?
The stigma of industrial progress killing us over and over again,

It's one part per trillion... unacceptable,
One part per billion... unacceptable,
One part per million... unacceptable,
This mammoth pogrom set upon us courtesy of the USA,

Inexcusable are the men before our time, I'd like to kick their ass
for what they left behind,
Cancer-causing chemicals, ozone-depleting arsenals, we're all gonna fry,
So put your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye,

One part per trillion... unacceptable,
One part per billion... unacceptable,
One part per million... unacceptable,

One part per billion... unac(fucking)ceptable

    General CommentThe United States has decided to add 1 Part Per Million (ppm) of Fluoride to the water supply. This song could be referring to this. The fluoride propaganda suggests fluoride is good for your teeth. Fluoride is a heavy metal, a by-product of the aluminum industry that was originally released as a gas into the air, but after damaging effects on neighboring people and property was forced to be controlled. The solution was to put it in the water supply. For more information search the web. Perhaps you may with to start here: fluoridealert.org/

    General CommentThis song is about the United States embracing their short term goals, completely disregarding the long term effects no matter destructive they are or how much they'll fuck up the earth. Some of the things like pollution or DDT etc.

    General Commentthough released in 1990 , this is even more relevant today as we continue to realize the coming effects of global warming.

    General CommentI think this is about the government trying to pass off obvious wrong doings as small and insignificant statistics. Even if it's only 'One part per million', it doesn't make it right, it's still unacceptable.
