Rachel saw the changes in the coastline
In the fish, in the wildlife, the forests and the trees
She knew these were canaries in the coalmine
She felt it in her body, in the air and in the seas
Silent Spring, Silent Spring

In the air there is a silent killer creeping
Wafting over all our houses
Streaming in and out our lungs
It is poisoning us now as we lay sleeping
Rachel Carson warned the nation for our daughters and our sons
Silent Spring, Silent Spring

Companies are dumping in the sea strand
And families spray weed killer all around their homes
Cancer's growing rampant in the heartland
While corporations profit from the seeds that they have sown
Silent Spring, Silent Spring

Zenetec sells pesticides to farmers
Salick earns its profits in the name of cancer care
Rachel and 2 million women suffered
While Zenetec bought Salick to increase its market share
Silent Spring, Silent Spring

Rachel saw the changes in the coastline
In the fish, in the wildlife, the forests and the trees
She was the canary in the coalmine
But her voice unlike her body won't be silenced by disease
Silent Spring, Silent Spring, Silent Spring
