lyrics

you wanna talk about food security?
how bout a salmon run, for you and me?
and fifty thousand of our fellow citizens,
and every one of our great great great grand children.

Damn, theres a dam. Damn, theres a dam,
Damn, I guess we need an alternative meal plan
maybe the dam could power our work
so we could buy Atlantic Salmon from Pacific entrepreneurs-
farmin Atlantic salmon here on the pacific side
I seen Pacific Atlantic Salmon with seven eyes
I seen em growin together like siamese brides
I gave em vaccine, anasthetic and fugicide...

Damn, I think I'd rather eat a blown up dam
watchin the salmon flowin up back into the land
for my great grand children, "now that's power!"
you can't measure it in kilowatt hours
but you can measure it in generations
of well fed people, under the sun

How much does cost one electric fish?
I got a blocked artery my blood is delicious
so pull the plug, pull the rug
let the blood flow, what's up, yo?
I'm havin salmon for lunch, we got enough, yo
to feed a civilization to feed a civilization
to feed a civilization to feed a civilization

to feed a civilization to feed civilization
the taste in your mouth is out of the corporation question
the lesson here is that you can't damn my artery
and try to sell the pressure to some other part of me
without somethin goin wrong on the other side
I seen Pacific Atlantic Salmon with seven eyes
I seen em growin together like siamese brides
I think it's high time we reached a compromise

For every damn dam dammin the salmon run
you gotta build a ladder and a damn big one
give me a fish flavoured stairway to heaven
Put down your power flavoured weapon.

you wanna talk about food security?
how bout a salmon run, for you and me?
and fifty thousand of our fellow citizens,
and every one of our great great great grand children.
