Poison In The Well (Encore 1) - Live: The Orpheum Theater, Boston, Mass. 29 April '88 - 10,000 Maniacs lyrics
♪ Poison In The Well (Encore 1) - Live: The Orpheum Theater, Boston, Mass. 29 April '88 ♪ official lyrics
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 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.

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.
