They're hosing down trucks at the border under a rainbow sign The raindrops falling on my head burn into my mind On a hillside in the distance there's a patch of green sunshine Ain't it a shame Ain't it a shame About the radium rain Everyday in the paper you can watch the numbers rise No such event can over take us here, we're much too wise In the meantime don't eat anything that grows and don't breathe when the cars go by Ain't it a shame Ain't it a shame About the radium rain Big motorcycle rumbles out of the rain like some creation of mist There's a man on a roof with a blindfold on and a hand grenade in his fist I walk stiff, with teeth clenched tight, filled with nostalgia for a clean wind's kiss Ain't it a shame Ain't it a shame About the radium rain A flock of birds writes something on the sky in a language I can't understand God's graffiti, but it don't say why so much evil seems to land on man When everyone I meet just wants to live and love, and get along as best they can Ain't it a shame Ain't it a shame About the radium rain
