The Lyrics

Bush reneged on his campaign promise to Nevada to not store nuclear waste in Yucca Mountain
(instrumental intro)

In Nevada, one summer, during a past election year,
Bush had come, seeking votes he needed against Gore.
He had right wingers behind him, and the zeal of the born again.
You might say he sought the key to own the store.

Bush had promised Yucca Mountain would be solved - would go away.
What he told would not last very long.
It's a campaign promise broken, but he doesn't really care.
It's all in the past - Nevada voted wrong.

Bush's monumental Yucca Mountain lie
Will lead to trains of nuke waste piled high.
The shadow of the Far Right is the answer to questions why...
Yucca Mountain lie (waste disposal)...
Yucca Mountain lie (waste disposal)...

Research on Yucca Mountain had revealed what was below:
Some geological instability.
Putting nuke waste there is crazy; once it leaks out, harms everyone.
But to Bush's friends, this was sheer heresy.

So he talks with such an attitude.
The forests and the streams can't keep pace with those missteps he makes.
He serves just cronies and himself to plunder public land.
Such insanity from a White House on the take.

Bush's monumental Yucca Mountain lie
Will lead to trains of nuke waste piled high.
He gave the nod; he listened to his cronies, made it fly...
Yucca Mountain lie (waste disposal)...
Yucca Mountain lie (waste disposal)...

Bush's life is full of blunders, but they're covered up, it's clear.
All the simple things, he cannot comprehend.
So he lies 'bout Yucca Mountain now, likes he's done so much before.
His people bring scars upon our land.

Bush's monumental Yucca Mountain lie
Will lead to trains of nuke waste piled high.
We've never seen a poorer plan - only politics could make it fly...
Yucca Mountain lie...

Bush's monumental Yucca Mountain lie...
Will lead to trains of nuke waste piled high...
Friends abound, whom Bush hired, to perpetrate this lie...
Yucca Mountain lie (waste disposal)...
Yucca Mountain lie (waste disposal)...
Yucca Mountain lie (waste disposal)...
Yucca Mountain lie (waste disposal)...
