every day the trucks roll by
headed round the hill
and its another million dollars down the road
the dumpsite there's still open
even tho its known to kill
cause theres another million dollars down the road

wonder how this can go on
when ten percent of the town is gone
from the poisons that get dumped there everyday
but the profit that the people make
to look the other way
is just another million dollars down the road

ask the people in the street
they say to close the dump is wrong
got to put it somewhere in the world
but you know that they don't live nearby
never knew the people who've died
they think they live a million miles down the road

wonder how this can go on
when ten percent of the town is gone
from the poisons that get dumped there everyday
and its everybodies problem
cause the world is our backyard
we've got to work to make it a place to stay

child playing in the yard
swinging on her swing
well she doesn't understand her lifes been sold
but the family can't move out now
cause the house they're in's not worth a thing
cause there's another million dollars down the road

and what amounts to murder
just gets a slap on the hand
hear the epa wants to grant an order to expand
how can people have so little respect for their fellow man
is life really worth
just a million dollars down the road
