about

Written after reading articles on the Pripyat amusement park in Pripyat, Ukraine that was deserted after the Chernobyl disaster.

lyrics

It’s a hazy day and it won’t be the last
Look at the fun erased by the blast
Trees on rooftops and booths wilted by floods
Rats and roaches scavenge through the dust

Toy dolls in pieces, oh look at the fun
Dirty prizes, who wants one?
Frozen in time, cars tethered by vines
The Ferris wheel runs, but hasn’t moved in some time

Join us at the fun fair
A toxic past fills the land and the air
Join us at the fun fair
Put on your gas mask and we’ll take you there

Weeds and grass growing through the walkways
Follow in the footsteps that the soldiers made
No hand in hand by mother and child
No sugar induced, cotton candy smiles

Join us at the fun fair
A toxic past fills the land and the air
Join us at the fun fair
Put on your gas mask and we’ll take you there

Epidemic to desertion
Paved the path to desolation
Under government assertion
A life of isolation

Join us at the fun fair
A toxic past fills the land and the air
Join us at the fun fair
Put on your gas mask and we’ll take you there

Join us at the fun fair
A toxic past fills the land and the air
Join us at the fun fair
Put on your gas mask and we’ll take you there
