Text & Musik: Don Lange

 

Telephone rang, have you heard the news?
Carrion crow's coming home to roost.
Over at the plant, you know, something went wrong.
Take the children and run.

They say they'll fix it if we only stay calm.
Go back to your factories, go back to your farms.
Don't you get angry, don't lose you cool.
And those bosses will share
the power with you.

Chorus:

Take the children and run.
Take the children and run.
Take the children and run.

Doctor Atomic lying through his teeth.
Says we've nothing to fear except fear itself.
And he visits the plant in a leadlined suit.
And comes out looking like courage on the evening news.

(Chorus)

You're on a commission and you're 60 years old.
You make a deal with the devil and profits unfold.
But 20 years down the line and that little girl
is in the prime of her life, and her bloodcells grow wild.

(Chorus)

I saw the reactor through an April haze.
And it looked like a blunderbuss aimed at the skies.
It's your friendly atom raging out of control.
And the scientists are praying
for Lady Luck's smile.

(Chorus)



HÖRPROBE


"Dies ist eines der besten Lieder über Gefahren einer mächtigen Atomindustrie. Obwohl es sich auf das ‚beinahe Desaster' in Harrisburg bezieht, kann dergleichen in jedem Kernkraftwerk der Welt passieren" (Guy Carawan, 1980).
