10000 Maniacs - Poison in the Well Songtext

Tell me what's gone wrong. I tilt my head there, under the faucet, but
when
I turn it on -- dry as paper. Call the neighbors. Who's to blame for
what's
going on? In the dark without a clue I'm just the same as you.
O, they tell us there's poison in the well, that someone's been a bit
untidy
and there's been a small spill. Not a lot, no, just a drop. But there
youa re
mistaken, you know you are. I wonder just how long they knew our well
was
poisoned but they let us just drink on.
O, they tell us there's poison in the well, that someone's been a bit
untidy
and there's been a small spill. All that it amounts to is a tear in a
salted
sea. Someone's been a bit untidy, they'll have it cleaned up in a
week. But
the week is over and now it's grown into years since I was told that I
should
be calm, there's nothing to fear here. But I drank that water for
years, my
wife and my children.
Tell me, where to now, if your fight for a bearable life can be fought
and
lost in you backyard? O, don't tell us there's poison in the well,
that
someone's been a bit untidy, that there's been a small spill. All that
it
amounts to is a tear in a salted sea. Someone's been a bit untidy,
they'll
have it cleaned up in a week.
