1980

Una canzone sullo stesso tema di We Almost Lost Detroit, la necessaria lotta contro le centrali nucleari. Gil Scott-Heron fu molto impegnato sul tema in quegli anni.
Did you feel that rumble? Did you hear that sound?
Well it wasn't no earthquake, but it shook the ground
It made me think about power, like it or not:
Gotta work for earth for what it's worth
Cause it's the only earth we've got

Shut 'um Down!
If that's the only way to keep them from melting down!
Shut 'um Down!
If that's the only way to keep them from melting down!

I've heard a lot about safety and human error
A few dials and gauges is just a wing and a prayer
If you need perfection, and that's what it takes
Then you can't use people, don't need people
You know people make mistakes...

Shut 'um Down!
If that's the only way to keep them from melting down!
Shut 'um Down!
If that's the only way to keep them from melting down!
