Sauget Wind

Una canzone favolosa...



Sauget, in Illinois, è la città quartier generale della Monsanto, una delle più grandi corporation agrochimiche del mondo, recentemente acquisita dalla Bayer.
Il DDT, l'Agente Orange, gli ormoni impiegati in zootecnia, i pesticidi come il glifosato, molti dei veleni più letali di cui ci nutriamo quotidianamente provengono dai laboratori della Monsanto, una compagnia che produce questi ed altri danni da oltre un secolo, essendo stata fondata nel 1901...
Gli Uncle Tupelo erano originari di Belleville, cittadina non distante da Sauget, e sapevano di cosa stavano parlando...
It's a long way to heaven
It's a short way to hell
Painkillers won't help
In a way, it's not yourself

They're poisoning the air
For personal wealth
It's a long way to heaven
It's a short way to hell

I don't know what I'm breathing for
'Cause the air around here ain't so good anymore
The weatherman says fair
But he looks like a lie
Nothing's free in this country
And there's no place to hide
No more

An industrial wind
Blows from the west
It'll burn out your eyes
And suck out your breath

It's waiting in the wings
For damage down the line
Save your tears for the soaps
And leave your money behind

I don't know what I'm breathing for
'Cause the air around here ain't so good anymore
The weatherman says fair
But he looks like a lie
And nothing's free in this country
And there's no place to hide
No more

No place to hide no more...
