Song Description

Which came first? Invisible deadly viruses that cause disease or a toxic environment (created by external pollutants) that create the conditions for illness?

Story Behind the Song

Will be part of a new musical, "Days of No Immunity."

Lyrics

The chicken or the egg
Verse 1:
I'm so confused
Hearing the news
People in so much pain
A lonely pup barks
We're deep in the dark
How can we stop the rain?

Now I've been told
By others so bold
Invaders are all within
Invisible mites
Who put up a fight
Calamity now begins

Chorus: Oh help me find a way
I don't want to beg
But which comes first
The chicken or the egg?

Verse 2:
Many will punt
But those in the hunt
Insist that they've found the key
Oh what a waste
You'll get a taste
Of their so-called immunity

They seem so sure
They've found the cure
Now you cannot go back
But they'll be one day
You'll have to pray
Trapped in the cul-de-sac

Chorus: Oh help me find a way
I don't want to beg
But which comes first
The chicken or the egg?

Bridge (1):
Feel it in the summer breeze
The ugly curse--the DDT
Brings so many to their knees
Such fear

We've been taken for a ride
Polluted earth--those pesticides
Flowers bloom-but start to die
It's clear

Verse (instrumental)

Chorus: Oh help me find a way
I don't want to beg
But which comes first
The chicken or the egg?

Bridge (2):
Surely now we have paid
The toxic swap--all man made
Those tiny germs, don't be afraid
Break through!

Which came first, the threat within?
Or outside, the poisoned din
The poisoned world, much to our chagrin
It's true!

Verse 3:
We're still in the dark
Fear grips the heart
Call it a lonely land
Run by a bunch
(who are) all out to lunch
We bow to their command

We're finally stuck
In a kind of a muck
0n top of the powder keg
No need to pout
(we) must figure it out
The chicken or the egg?
