Ghost Town (for the Victims of Chernobyl)

Huns & Dr Beeker
Language: English



There was no way they could have known that morning
That they awoke upon a fateful day
The killer wind came down without a warning
And no one had the chance to get away

The firemen were brave, they fought with honor
But the blaze was more than it appeared to be
And one by one they fell beside their comrades
Victims of a foe they could not see

Momma where are you?
Poppa where did you go?
And where are all the children who used to play here?
Only Heaven knows…

What they saw defied all explanation
Someone said the trees were glowing red
They say the light came from the radiation
But, maybe it’s the spirits of the dead

Momma where are you?
Poppa where did you go?
And where are all the children who used to play here?
Only Heaven knows…

Gone the homes, the gardens and the playgrounds
Gone the souls who made their livings here
They say this place will always be a ghost town
It will be for at least six hundred years

Momma where are you?
Poppa where did you go?
And where are all the children who used to play here?
Only Heaven knows…
