(Say it your own words) Chernobyl

This song is by Performance and appears on the album (We Are) Performance (2007).

I've been pouring poisened earth over problems of
My own,
I've been cracking like a joke inside an ancient
Telephone,
I've been trusting the disgusting it is all I'll ever trust,
I've felt sick in sunlit carparks running fingers over rust,
I was young and I was dreaming of deceptions of the flash,
Now I'm old enough to see I've been rejected by the
Best.
And the best are only bluster,
They are just another lie,
They will be forgotten in the blinking of an eye.

There's misery here I know there is.
There's misery here I know.
Chernobyl, tell me in your own words,
Did I make it worse?
Did I make it worse?
Did I? Chernobyl?

Oh you died as if you meant it,
People fled as if they cared,
There are screens within this mess,
There are screens at which I've stared.
I will run to you and kiss you with a mask around
My mouth,
I will turn to you and ask you, what do they laugh
About?
Everybody's laughing, what do they laugh about?

'Cause there's misery here, I know there is.
There's misery here, I know.
Chernobyl, tell me in your own words,
Did I make it worse?
Did I make it worse?
Did I? Chernobyl?

I know what your thinking,
It was you who knew me first,
I will never learn,
I will make it worse.

Tell me all I need.

Is-- for Chernobyl.
To tell me what your thinking,
It was you who knew me first,
I will never learn,
I will make it worse. (x4)
Chernobyl, tell me in your own words.
Did I make it worse?
