Lyrics and music: Geoff Sanborn

lyrics

In the sky over San Jose, hills like charcoal, like camel's hair
Old man beside me, two tubes in his nose, closing his eyes, and he's mumbling a prayer

Do you know where your child is? Do you know where your child is?
I'm wondering what's next, but I'm not wondering hard
The ground's coming up and it's glittering with cars

In a lighted pool with glass on the bottom there's a girl who's too drunk to do anything but smile
She needs a piano player for an audition. Planes with red lights like taxis in the sky.

Do you know where your child is? Do you know where your child is?
No one uses writers here anymore, they got cameras in the walls, people fucking on the floor.

A mangled seal is stinking up the beach, the wind's too high to hear what anyone's saying,
Six guys with baseball bats are trying to get our beer, the radio's in the fire, but it keeps on playing

Do you know where your child is? Do you know where your child is?
One thing leads to another but I don't know how
Orphans breeding orphans, disappearing into crowds
