song Description:

A protest folk song from the 1980s about the December 3, 1984, Union Carbide industrial accident in Bhopal, India, which cost the lives of over 16,000 people. (lyrics) “There’s poison in the air Right near the factory!” And children start to die And mothers start to scream And fathers start to weep And workers start to shout: “The Union Carbide plant— Its gas is pouring out!” It went to India To use the cheap labor And thousands it did kill When its poison gas did pour “Safety, it costs too much” The bankers all did say And the silent spring of death Won’t affect the USA. The pesticide for insects Murdered people now instead The methyl isocyanate From the storage tank it fled Morgan Guaranty Director Brown And Chase Manhattan Director Ferguson Directed Union Carbide To use the cheapest gas. Each day another horror Or a new atrocity There is no regulation As they destroy the air we breathe Today they poisoned India Tomorrow your city A monument to profit A tribute to corporate greed.
