Depleted Uranium Is Nuclear War

Depleted uranium is nuclear waste.
It deforms, it sickens, it contaminates.
It ravages the body, eats at your brain.
Breathin’ it’s like smokin’ radioactive crack cocaine.
The cause of so much cancer, torment and pain,
Eternal damnation for whoever remains.

It’s been used in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Iraq.
400,000 Nagasaki-like nuclear attacks.
It’s poisoned these places, spread death everywhere,
F or the millions of innocent civilians still there.
A sure death sentence for generations to come,
Still killing long after the fighting is done.

It’s poisoned our own troops and their families back home.
It’s lodged in their lungs, their organs and bones.
So many wounds invisible, exploding inside;
Since returning back home, tens of thousands have died.
Underneath the fancy speeches and government lies,
The betrayal of the troops cannot be denied.

Once it’s been used, it’s forever here.
It has a half-life span of more than four billion years.
It’s in the soil, in the water, in the air that we breathe,
The whole planet’s grim reaper, a devil’s disease.
A war crime for all time, endless hell we’ve unleashed,
Depleted uranium is a WMD.
Depleted uranium is insanity.
Right this wrong.
Ban this bomb.
Stop this violence.
Break your silence;
Tell your neighbors, friends and families the score –
