The Lyrics

After poisoning Hinkley, CA, water with hexavalent chromium, incompetent and criminally negligent utility monopoly Pacific Gas and Electric is now trying to weasel out of a restitution agreement with the town of San Bruno, CA. Improperly welded gas transmission lines were responsible for an explosion and fire that destroyed nearly 40 homes and killed 8 people in San Bruno, in part because it took PG&E more than an hour to shut the gas off. Having seriously stinted on maintenance and equipment upgrades over decades, PG&E had failed to install automatic shutoff valves. This continuous corporate malfeasance was abetted by PG&E’s pals at the toothless, useless Public Utilities Commission.
Six-chromers of Hinkley f**kin’
Up—the line was bound to blow.
This company’s truly suckin’—
Eight dead in San Bruno.

With fire the town was lit,
Whole neighborhood burnin’ down. . .
Slipshod work done long ago.
When the line blew, there
Were no shutoff valves around.
Nowhere to run. . .inferno.

[sounds of explosion and inferno]

With fire the town was lit,
Whole neighborhood burnin’ down. . .
Incompetence long ago.
Failure ain’t new there;
This time they shut eight lives down.
Yet these scum still come and go.

Six-chromers of Hinkley f**kin’
The townsfolk ex post facto.
Lives-takers jivin’ and shuckin’. . .
Eight dead in San Bruno. . . .
