About this song
They planted Sickness In My Garden They planted sickness in my garden The morning wind brought disease I don't know about all these things I am not a scientist I'm just an ignorant I'm just a fool Empty streets forsaken homes In a lush green no man's land Whoever's not to leave Stays there to die They planted sickness... All the oathes and all the vows All the faith and grinning bows Are just a crumbling mask To cover your face Can you bear the children's eyes Do you dare to speak the truth There is an unseen curse Spread on the fields They planted sickness...
"Oh well, a song about Chernobyl. That's really old news..." someone told me after realising what the lyrics are about. Maybe he should take a trip to the forsaken Ukrainian towns near the exploded nuclear power station. There are so many stories and songs about Titanic. I don't know any other songs about Chernobyl. Although this accident was much more grave than the sinking of the luxury liner. I live half a mile from a nuclear power station and people here are so sure this will never happen to us. Hope so too.
