Uranium

 

 

The river doom
is flowing home
draining your life before its time

 

A hunger strike
you canít escape
for seven generations to come*

The buried hope
is a fairytale **
concealing an eternal night

 

Under the hoofs
of a dying horse
youíll find no light

 

 

In a billion years ***
--a mutantís fear--

It will be here

We will be dust
