Nuclear Waste

This song is by Fast Breeder & The Radio Actors and appears on the single Nuclear Waste (1978).

Nuclear waste
We don't want that
Nuclear waste
We don't need that
Nuclear waste
We’ve got to leave this nuclear age behind
In our time

A fast breeder breaks all the rules
Gives us something for nothing
(That ain't true)
Who makes the profit?
(Not me and you)
Who runs the risks?
(We all do)

Nuclear waste
We don't want that
Nuclear waste
We can't get rid of that
Nuclear waste
You're hoping we'll get used to it
Nuclear waste
But I've had enough of it

Do you find it attractive to be radioactive
Emitting killing rays
Splitting your atoms with a fission reaction
Transmitting out of phase
Strontium 90
Strontium 90
I wanna live to see 1999

There's enough energy
In the air and in the sea
To give us power to live
In peace and harmony

Nuclear waste
Won’t get used to your
Nuclear waste
Ultimate pollution
Nuclear waste
Produces mutation
Nuclear waste
It's not evolution
Nuclear waste
You know the solution
New Killer Waste
Better active today
New Killer Waste
Than radioactive tomorrow
New Killer Waste
Need a cure for cancer
New Killer Waste
Need the real answer
New Killer Waste
Fusion not fission
New Killer Waste
Let me put my arms around your
Nuclear waste
Damaging my lettuces
Nuclear waste
Jamming my transmission
Nuclear waste
Damaging our vision
Nuclear waste
