Track Name: Chornobylsha Katastrofa
holding cell trembles and lid flees into obscurity - radioactive vapor blankets and hides within the skyward film - 30 lag and mass departure begins - exposure and disruption already in flight - invisible enemy in a battle for life - how is one to win with no weapons?

blind miners dug tunnels underneath the surface - liquidators gamble their vigor to save a stranger - valiant soldiers masked in make shift lead suits - ventured to clear debris shoveling in second shifts

invisible enemy in a battle for life - how is one to win with no weapons? - invisible enemy - to uproot, but it is not seen, it goes through you, gets into you

ghost town of their distant memories - bodies scrambled eating away from inside - baron deserted, and nearly forgotten
Track Name: Exxon
el día en que el agua murió - olas prístinas se transformaron en oscuridad - el día en que el agua murió - aire obstruido de los casi atrapados

en modo de piloto automático para tomar una copa en la cabina - hacia el ávido hielo, golpeó un arrecife desapercibido - la noche ocultó los óleos pero los humos los desnudaron - rupturas dejaron fluir las lagrimas de carbón

el día en que el agua murió - olas prístinas se transformaron en oscuridad - el día en que el agua murió - aire obstruido de los casi atrapados - el día en que el agua murió - olas prístinas se transformaron en oscuridad - el día en que el agua murió - capa invernal de aceite y sangre negra

la indecisión, la culpa - nadie para tomar el control - sin conciencia - quema de espuelas y reacciones humanas - dispersando revolvieron a los nadadores del mar - escamas de oscuridad

oh príncipe William, su sonido ya no abraza la vida - desaparecen, se desvanecen -
esa envoltura de ébano fue demasiado densa para soportar
Track Name: Love Canal
capturando ese flujo y aprovechando su fuerza - se expusieron las vísceras de gleba dejándola vacía - siendo inconclusa para la eliminación de Hooker - la fruta reactiva disfrazada con pasto frondoso y trocado por uno

cráneos inmaduros retozando en lo alto - hogares brotaban mientras la rezuma, de mugre atravesaba - los alumnos en la escuela se enfermaban sin descanso - la prensa derramó las palabras y un diluvio las confirmó

pueblo fantasma de mi canal del amor - el dolor se propaga y el amor quebrantado debe de ser curado

gestándose bajo sus pies, lixiviándose hacia el aire - oficiales que ocultan la verdad y el saber de aquellos que lo vivieron

pueblo fantasma de mi canal del amor - el dolor se propaga y el amor quebrantado debe de ser curado
Track Name: Orol Dengizi
the hope of increasing bails of cotton - thirsty fields fed from its branches - grounded fishing vessels to rust - anglers in search of labor - desolate brackish pan struggling to sustain life - disease swept from exposed seabed

shipwrecked in a sea of barren salt - the sound of swells crashing against steal becomes the parched - whipping winds of toxins - a blanket of sun dried brine leeches from the dessert.

cattle and camels raised to scrape by bushes erected to block the deadly gusts - dams went up and then crashed down finally holding to quench the torrid earth – authoring fish to be caught and habitants back to work

attempting to destroy life and refurbish its essence
Track Name: C12H4Cl4O2
a fancy resort spot for the well to do - atop the sunny, the sandy river banks - swimming caps and suits blending into the dominant view - smiling faces, people bursting with joyfulness - deserted, left to scrape by - dust evaporating from the ground up

is controlled to aid to unveil the people - oil sprayed to ease the dust, oil sprayed to stifle - industrial waste leftovers taken from who knows where - sprayed continually to hold the creeping dust down - agent orange covered the earth - bubbling with a known carcinogen
after horses fell, qualms, questions began - city deemed, unlivable toxious soil - withdrawal required health to stabilize - houses were bulldozed and remains destroyed

the land was transformed where wildlife roams and flowers bloom - beautiful forest/florets filled with life better times to come
Track Name: Minamata, Humamoto
smoke billows up, the smoke stakes and stretches out - the relics of growth and consumerism now - trickle - drizzle - plop - the sea drinks up prosperity aftermath - babies enter world already suffering effects of heavy metals

clouds seafloor, awaits silently - seeps under the skin and remains hidden - lancing spear to pierce seemingly pristine waters - bottom dwellers captured for livelihood - trickle - drizzle - plop

babies enter world already suffering effects of heavy metals - weighing on the live of Japan - served daily to village and pets, felines initiate twitch and stagger - soon town feels the act of ingestion - paralyzed, trembling, numb

runoff and treatment neglected - mass production, massive clean up - fertilizers to help them grow up - end up stunting them fruitless - balance and motion - shaking and convulsion - can’t be stopped till the heart gives in - till the heart and mind retire
Track Name: The Great Smog of 1952
los críos soñaban con el vicario de Cristo, de los presentes adquiridos, de alegría para el asueto - pero en esos días tan oscuros sólo la bruma retorcida se deslizaba a través de las chimeneas

castillos de hornos abasteciendo al imperio - fuente venenosa entreteniendo a borregos del pueblo

calentando las casas del frío insoportable - despachando solo la gran calidad para conservar la cantidad - ojos ahumados, ¿pueden ver dónde todo comenzó a arder?

botando la madera y celebrando el carbón - de vuelta al 13 entre olores, estancándose en la opulencia - tsic, tsic, tsic una serpiente y el caleidoscopio está girando sobre cabezas, envolviendo todas las presas

la familia real temía a las esmeraldas perdidas - la descomposición de edificios y el blanqueado de los embriones

apagones reviven recuerdos de aquella guerra - escondidos en la casa, todas las salidas siguen selladas - ojos ahumados, ¿pueden ver dónde todo comenzó a arder?


temblando del frío - escalofríos de miedo - la riqueza encerrada en errores

el aire condensando bajando una máscara - hasta nuestros pulmones - en los corazones - siempre en sus mentes
Track Name: Le Lagon Bleu
burbujas refrescantes calman el calor - revestimiento interior que alivia las paredes tensas - consumidos y tirados del pensamiento, de la mente - para toda una vida llena de heridas

la sociedad de usar y tirar lanza todo en el mar - se balancea a lado de los peces ansiosos y hambrientos - perdiendo su forma - rompiéndose en más minúsculas partículas hasta que se asemeja a un fondo de alimentos

consume pastillas de color beige y regurgita todo para sus crías - estómagos llenos, nutrientes inexistentes - dejado indigestible hasta el muerte

el remolino de plástico siempre formando espuma - sólo creamos mierda que la naturaleza no puede tragar
Track Name: Ebony
sun comes up and its out to play - on the lake with the boat - splash, shiny, fishing, clean air breaths - generations stick around where bliss is found

wall buckles, wall bursts - as the black tsunami explodes down the river - towards house, smothering lives - as the black tsunami covers past memories

nearby electricity billows out skyward stretching stacks - dirty ebony fuel burned and ash waste funneled into the pond - five decades high, a landfill of waste - five decades of pressure of use and abuse

wall buckles, wall bursts - as the black tsunami explodes down the river - towards house, smothering lives - as the black tsunami covers past memories

murky sludge, loiters in the lake - poisonous metals hide in the land clumps - the hee hees of children, now the humming of machinery - trapped behind house walls, some not to be contaminated
Track Name: UCIL's MIC
a dismal shantytown saddened with penury - the factory erected in its heart - brought a daydream of prosperity to a dearth arena - faith in foreign minds to lift them, to guide them - break down the walls, eyes burn - insides break out

the cleansing water flowed down lanky pipelines - without a damn to stop, it seeped covertly into the MIC - it bubbled, it heated, evaporating to its lethal phase - snaking furtively through tunnels - out the gates
medicine for plants - to help them grow - hush, hush - baleful gas for dwellers if it escapes - hush, hush - but these alien heads know how to control it

no warning sirens were heard - oozing into the city slumber undetected, unforeseen - crossing the threshold of all body chambers - the smell of burning chili passed into their lungs

nervous system retains no control - enduring damage - long term consequences outshine generations - defects due to the medicine for plants - but these alien heads know how to control it…
