Poison In The Well Lyrics - 10,000 Maniacs

Tell me what's gone wrong? 

I tilt my head there, under the faucet 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 

 

Oh, they tell us there's poison here in the well 

That someone's been a bit untidy and there's been a small spill 

Not a lot, no, just a drop, there you are mistaken you know you are 

I wonder just how long they knew our well was poisoned 

But they let us just drink on 

 

Oh, they tell us there's here poison in the well 

That someone's been a bit untidy that there's been a small spill 

And all that it amounts to is a tear in a salted sea 

That 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 

So, tell me, where to now 

If your fight for a bearable life can be fought and lost in your backyard?
