Whiskey bird and the vodka sparrow

Flying through a molecular wetland
Looking out on the dusty smog
Where have they been?
 
Searching for the acid licorice plant
And the poisoned cattails that scream in the night
The smoke and the sulfur
Which clogs your lungs
Who's to blame?
 
Whiskey bird and the vodka sparrow
Dusty plumage and sooty wings
All the coughing smokestacks so dark and gray
Where did they go?
 
Petrified forest, last of its kind
Hard-boiled eggs in a frozen nest
No leaves on the ground
No sunlight or green
Who's to blame?
 
Whiskey bird and the vodka sparrow
A chemical rain which singes the ground
An icy wind, a distant call
Why did they leave?
 
On somber dark mountains and isotope hills
They looked to the sunset, the red moon they saw
This nuclear wasteland,
This folly of all man,
Who's to blame?
Who's to blame?
Who's to blame?
