Lyrics


Discarded, deformed
Babies of the chemical age
Mutated, some unborn
Dying in their fetal cage
On the day of the nativity in '56
Comes a child forsaken
The first of a hundred thousand
Cursed by a drug they'd taken


Condemned to a life unkind
As they suffered in silence
The Hell of Thalidomide
All in the name of science
A mother's ruin
All for another's greed
Prescribing horror and sorrow when they breed


Miscarriage, disparagе
Live a life of anguish
Midwives wеre taking lives
So the child it would not languish
Suffocating newborn daughters and sons
For their malformations
Given toxic poison
That twisted a generation


Condemned to a life unkind
As they suffered in silence
The Hell of Thalidomide
All in the name of science
A mother's ruin
All for another's greed
Prescribing horror and sorrow when they breed


First created in the past
As an antidote for Sarin gas
Created in camps of death
What price a pound of flesh?
Limbless, eyeless
All organs displaced
They made money hand over fist
By selling this toxic waste


Condemned to a life unkind
As they suffered in silence
The Hell of Thalidomide
All in the name of science
A mother's ruin
All for another's greed
Prescribing horror and sorrow when they breed
