lyrics

It’s like a sickness
Where the cure just might be worse
Stuck in a stalemate
It’s a wicked kind of curse
Devil you don’t know
Or the devil that you do
Best pick your poison
Or your poison will find you

Rock and a hard place
Baby something’s got to give
I fear the avalanche
But waiting for the cave-in
Is no way to live

There is a highway
That passes through the zone
Around Chernobyl
And I ride it all alone
Along the narrow center line
Where the Geiger counter’s slow
But on my left and on my right
I see the radiation glow

Rock and a hard place…

So help me doctor
Heal my troubles if you would
Give me some medicine
Prescribe me something good
I need a remedy
For my condition to improve
Is there a cure for this paralysis
For I can hardly move

Rock and a hard place…
