Mayday In Kiev Lyrics

Music: Jarzombec, Keyser
Lyrics: Keyser
"The unleashed power of the atom changed everything
save our mode of thinking, and we thus drift toward
unparalleled catastrophes."
- Albert Einstein
In a nation for a dangerous penchant for secrecy
A dread disaster at Chernobyl was concealed
As a poisoning cloud spread over the Eastern Bloc
Alarming information was reluctantly revealed
An explosion in Reactor Four - a fire refusing to cease
No containment walls preventing radioactive release
Evidence that peaceful technology had gone awry
More catastrophically than Windscale or TMI
Alert - Celebration in Kiev
Under glowing skies - Soviet lies
Alert - In nearby Poland
A shower of radiation
Children iodized
Mayday - A day of rejoice
A cry of distress
Severe political fallout - toxic exchange of words
Soviet obscurantism under verbal attack
Abroad, outraged countries appeal for information
Met with grudging riposte, hesitant placation
At home, TASS reports no danger - nothing to fear
As deadly elemental isotopes spew into the biosphere
"The unleashed power of the atom ..." - A warning from the past
The benefits of technology are reversed by careless human error
Science, once a saviour, now an effective destroyer
We must apply our knowledge with care
Entombed in concrete, Chernobyl will forever remain
A monument to the chilling effects of negligence
