"Acid Rain" as written by Alan Thomson and John Martyn....
Will our children look back
With hatred or despair
At a generation of idiots
Who just didn't care

About the fossil fuel fumes
And the aerosol sprays
That put holes in the ozone
And let in the rays

That can cause cancer in humans?
And what is it all worth
Heating up our globe
Destroying our own Earth?

What will they think
Of us with no concern
About the seas of shit
And radiation burn?

We who watched
The waters of the world
Turn to lakes of lava
Killing every form of life?

Will they have regrets
For being born at all
Into a world where only
Acid rain can fall

On all the empty fields
And on the vacant lots
Where cockroaches and crab grass
Are the only crops?

Acid rain dissolving away
The monuments of man
Run for your lives!
Acid rain

Smell the rain coming?
Acid rain
Run for cover now!
Acid rain

The water is on fire!
Acid rain
