Chorus: Just give me the warm power of the sun Give me the steady flow of a waterfall Give me the spirit of living things as they return to clay. Just give me the restless power of the wind Give me the comforting glow of a wood fire But please take all of your atomic poison power away.
Everybody needs some power I'm told To shield them from the darkness and the cold Some may see a way to take control when it's bought and sold.
I know that lives are at stake Yours and mine and our descendants in time. There's so much to gain, so much to lose Everyone of us has to choose.
We are only now beginning to see How delicate the balance of nature can be The limits of her ways have been defined And we've crossed that line.
Some don't even care or know that we'll pay But we have seen the face of death in our day. There's so little time to change our ways If only we together can say
All of your atomic poison power All of your atomic poison power Away.
