Lyrics

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?

Oh, don't tell us there's poison here 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
That someone's been a bit untidy, they'll have it cleaned up in a week
