The Lyrics

Sweden is shutting down the old Barseb├Ąck nuclear power plant at Landskrona, Scania. That particular plant has kept the inhabitants of Copenhagen in precariousness already for several years, as it is old and approaching its technological lifecycle end as well. But suppose that decision had been overridden?
We're scared here in Denmark
But still we can't tell
If its working or blown up
and produced living hell
I'm afraid when I see reddish glow
at northeast sky (Swedish sky)
Will the Landskrona be still in go -
or is it final meltdown? -
The final meltdown!
Ooh oh

(synthesizer solo)

Will it blow up to Venus (Venus?)
And raise a mushroom cloud?
Or its core melt to China
through the concrete shroud?
With so many years passed by
And it's worn and so old (worn and old)
I'm sure that we'll all get to cry -
when it's final melttdown!
The final melttdown!

The final meltdown (the final meltdown)
Ooh ooh oh

(interlude)

The final meltdown
Ooh oh
I'ts the final melttdown
The final meltdown
The final meltdown (the final meltdown)
Ooh
It's the final meltdown
We are dying together

I like this. I gave it 5's. I also thought of a parody idea for the only you could do. Intead of Rock on make it Clog on. It can start out like this. Hey Swiss smorgasborg,
