fallen on top of your sword
pull an intestinal cord
pull every inch of them out
look at them all on the ground
shape the guts into some words
name everybody you hurt
doesn't make up for it

if you had only known
that one known unknown that you often were shown
if you had only
if you had only seen
what everyone could
that might have been good, no?

say that it's under control
behind you the video rolls
archival footage is shown
what's going on in there now?
"don't know, but we'll work it out"
meanwhile we count on one hand
those who almost understand

there will be no disposition
of the fission factor
there will be no exposition
of the fourth reactor
atom age, adjourn your aegis
never be recaptured
atom age, adjourn your aegis
in the artifracture

no use to point fingers now
why should we bring up the past?
please leave the area fast
unfit for humans to last
(fall on your sword) got our priorities straight
(artifracture) open the wastewater gate
(under control) it's just a little too late
(artifracture) to wash out the evidence
