Glowing In The Dark
Sung to "Dancing In The Dark"


I heard about Chernobyl
But the press had nothing to say
The rumors said it was awful
How the core melted down halfway
Radiation exposure
Affecting the towns surrounding the plant
People dying
Try to run but knowing you can't

You can't stop the fire
You can't stop the meltdown once it starts
Guess we'll expire
All my comrades are glowing in the dark

I got up yesterday morning
Left a fistful of hair back in the sink
None of the sparrows were singing
Couldn't find no water fit to drink
My sister called me from Moscow
Said that no one knows what went wrong
But we'll get out of this somehow
I just doubt we'll live too long

Can't stop the fire
Can't stop the meltdown once it starts
Guess we'll expire
All my comrades are glowing in the dark

I just lost two of my molers
They fell out on the floor right next to me
The weather keeps getting colder
Someone owes an apology
The stores all had to shut down
The dogs they glow when they're out at night
People dying from hunger
Hey people, be glad you're not hungry tonight
I've got this indigestion
I'm sick from hanging 'round here trying to fight this curse
I hate their bad deception
I just hope it doesn't get much worse

You can't stop the fire
You can't stop the meltdown once it starts
Guess we'll expire
All my comrades are glowing in the dark
