Lyrics

I'll tell you a story that happened in April of 1986 An explosion and subsequent meltdown Caused damage that never can be fixed A nuclear reactor at Chernobyl Like so many others round the globe Did what experts say cannot happen And like a bomb did explode chorus: Chernobyl, I vow I will Use all my power to prevent the hour That our earth shall live no more From nuclear accident or war For some, it’s a day to talk of heroes Those brave souls that put the fire out SBut let’s not forget the well?placed cowards Who continue to bring these things about As horror hit the evening newscreen And the scope of destruction became clear The nuclear lobby voiced its new theme That "the only problem is our fear," The poison extends through the foodchain And death extends through the years It comes with the wind and the light rain It knows no borders or frontiers We cannot change what has happened We cannot erase what has passed But one thing's for sure, if this planet will endure This accident has got to be our last Make nuclear power something of the past!
