Just 80 miles west in abandon planes
Deep in within the sand, the nuclear power drains
In a desert of salt and sand,
A chemical reaction raises to land

Your home is in the centre of toxic dump
Saving the treatment for the cancer eating lump
The zion curtain encloses your land
Still to the west is a radioactive breathing ground

Just 80 miles, west of Salt Lake
Right next to the great dead lake

This illness, is eating me alive
This sickness, I can’t survive
When the wind picks up
It begins to blow
A city becomes a victim
And they don’t know

Inhaling this toxic gas
Will make your life fall to the past
What can you do?
Where can you go?
Salt Lake City is a story for a show
