And the wind failed to blow

And the waters they were not parted

The face of God did not show

And the evil empire was delighted

 

We burn 'em up just like birds

Can we blow 'em up just like a party

We burn 'em up just like dirt

Can we blow 'em up just like retarded

 

And the Leader they chose

Had his pockets all overflowing

The grease of the pterodactyl

The oily tyrannosaurus

 

My head ain't workin right

It might not last the night

Before I take my dive

I will say this for being alive

 

You gotta have a nuclear soul

To melt down all your sorrowful load

And you gotta have a mercury soul

To weigh down any glimmer of gold

 

I would not drive your car

Iffen you paid me a million large

And I would not think that way

Maybe you came from another place

 

I would not testify

Even to keep myself alive

Maybe I kid myself sometimes

But I don't think I'm one of your kind.

 

--Lida Husik, "Nuclear Soul"
