Then to the above riff to FINISH!

Lyrics:

poison is bubbling
beneath your dream home
buried there years before.

kid comes in crying
from playing in the garden
"mommy, i burned my hands!"

"whats making our eyes so itchy?"
"Dont rub 'em they'll swell up."

oh...oh oh oh
it's the big waste dump.

oh, yeah
we build your ticky tacky houses
on landfill soil
to cover up a gift
we left you years before
of toxic chemicles and leaking gas
just dig a little while
you'll find our acid baths.

cesspools
in eden
oozing away

groundwater's poisened
air stinks like hell
the lines for doctors grow long
over martini's
the company laughs
"we dont owe you a *** thing"

but what about all thes fainting spells?
how'd you like to lick
from my open sores?

And oh...oh oh oh
Why are our babies stillborn?

Oh, yeah
oh, yeah
a storage tanks leaking
its about to explode
why evacuate
when you can watch the fun

nothing happenes here
get out the lawn chairs
we'll drink pink lemonade
and watch Martinez burn!

cesspools
in eden
Cesspools in eden
leak by the day.

the land we sold you
is right atop our acid pits
we fill them by the truckload
in the dead of night

there's a thousand more toxic
tips of the iceberg
we pay a little bribe
or we just dont report them

and see what you get
cesspools
in eden
in eden
no accident
just a little of our greed fueled negligence

so you've found the proof why
your cancer rate's gone up
but whatcha gonna do
when weve got all the cards

Times beach, rocky flats
Love canal and Bhopal
merry christmas hostages
from the folks that care

Cesspools
in eden
oozing away
cesspools
in eden
leak by the day
cesspools in eden
Have a nice day.
