Up In Smoke Lyrics

"Up in Smoke" is an Emily Saliers song, dating from early 1987, I
believe. I think that it's one of the most pop-oriented tunes Emily
has written, and it would fit in nicely with "Closer to Fine" and
"Hammer and a Nail." It's just catchy as all get-out. And I happen
to think that's a good thing.
Up in Smoke.
They took away my garden
To make room for a chemical plant
I feel my country's arteries harden
With the aid of a government grant
We are not a bunch of upstarts
Just out l
ooking for a cause
We hunger for our justice
And not applause
We don't just make peace signs and meditate
We don't take this thing as a joke
We just want to relate - we're in a pretty bad state
And we don't want to go up in smoke
My water has got cancer
And the rivers have all dried
While I watch my country practice
Nuclear suicide
Don't think it's impossible
To see this thing come clean
We're going to save this poor old world's head
From the guillotine
They took away my garden
(My water has got cancer)
To make room for a chemical plant
(And the rivers have all dried)
I feel my country's arteries harden
(While I watch my country practice)
Nuclear suicide
Oh Lord, we don't want to see our children go up in smoke.
