John Mcdermott - Farewell To Pripchat Lyrics

  • It was a Friday in April 1986,
  • The day that nightmare begun,
  • When the dust it fell down on our buildings and streets,
  • And entered our buildings at noon,
  • Touched the grass and trees, bicycyles, cars
  • Beds, books and picture frames too,
  • We stood around helpless, confused,
  • Nobody knew what to do.
  • At two o'clock on Sunday the buses arrived,
  • A fleet of a thousand or more,
  • We were ordered to be on our way,
  • Not knowing what lay in store ,
  • Some of our citizens fled in dismay,
  • And looked for a good place to hide,
  • When four o'clock came and the last bus pulled out,
  • T'was the day that our lively town died.
  • (Chorus)
  • And the shirts, sheets and hankerchiefs cracks in the wind,
  • On the window ledge the withering plants,
  • And the Ladas and Volgas are parked by the door,
  • And the bikes in its usual stance.
  • Our evergreen tree lies withered and drooped,
  • They've poisoned our fertile land,
  • The streets speak a deafening silence,
  • Nothing stirs but the sand.
  • A visit back home is so eerie today,
  • A modern Pompei in view,
  • To see all the old shops ond the Forest Hotel,
  • And the Promyet cinema too.
  • The momentos we gathered all left behind,
  • Our photos and letters and cards,
  • The toys of our children untouchable now,
  • Toy Soldiers left standing on guard.
  • So fare thee well Pripchat, my home and my soul,
  • Your sorrow can know no relief.
  • A terrifying glimpse of the future you show,
  • Your children all scattered like geese,
  • The clothes lines still sways but the owners long gone.
  • As the nomadic era returns,
  • The questions in black and white blurred into grey,
  • The answer is too easy to learn.
  • (Chorus)
  • (Chorus)
