Irreducible is the word for today,
Plastic compounds and nuclear waste,
What the hell is the matter with the people
On this planet? Have we all gone insane?
The stigma of industrial progress killing us
Over and over again.

One part per trillion...unacceptable!
One part per billion...unacceptable!
One part per million...unacceptable!
This mammoth pogrom set upon courtesy of the USA.

Inexcusable are the men before our time,
I'd like to kick their ass for what they left behind,
Cancer-causing chemicals, ozone-depleting aerosols:
We're all going to fry, so put your head between your legs
And kiss your ass goodbye.

One part per trillion...unacceptable!
One part per billion...unacceptable!
One part per million...unacceptable!

(Repeat ad infinitum.)
