Kepone Factory





I finally found a job in the paper
Movin’ barrels at a chemical plant
There’s shiny-looking dust on my fingers
Goin’ up my nose and into my lungs

It’s the
Kepone poisoning — Minamata
Kepone poisoning — Minamata
At the grimy Kepone Factory
Turning people into bonzai trees

Now I’ve got these splitting headaches
I can’t quite get it up no more
I can’t sleep and it’s driving me crazy
I shake all day and I’m seeing double

Kepone poisoning — Minamata
Kepone poisoning — Minamata
At the grimy Kepone Factory
Turning people into bonzai trees

Gonna go down to your big metal building
Gonna slam right through your bright metal door
Gonna grab you by your sta-prest collar
And ram some kepone down your throat

The lawyer says "That’s the breaks, kid
"Gonna gnarl and rot the rest of your life
"If you don’t sue, we’ll give you a Trans-Am"
That I’ll never drive cos I shake all the time

’Cause of the
Kepone poisoning — Minamata
Kepone poisoning — Minamata
At the grimy Kepone factory…
