Got in the water,
got in the lead,
got in your head,
they're all dead.

Thalidomide child,
thalidomide child,
thalid-thalidomide child.

How long it took,
the sleeping pills,
they didnt know,
that it would kill.

Thalidomide child,
thalidomide child,
thalid-thalidomide child.

When you're born,
try to hide,
it'll get you,
thalidomide.

Thalidomide child,
thalidomide child,
thalid-thalidomide child.

How long it took,
the sleeping pills,
they didnt know,
that it would kill,
when youre born,
try to hide,
it'll get you,
thalidomide.

Thalidomide child,
thalidomide child,
thalid-thalidomide child.

    Song MeaningBack in the 80's doctors said it was safe to take thalidomide when your pregnant for a reason I forgot. Turned out it deformed and killed hundreds of babies born during that time and was a big scandal and fuck up.
