Lyrics and music: Geoff Sanborn

lyrics

Well it's not the time to tell the kids
About what the grownups did
But the mother cries and the father screams
And the other man pitches his bottles into the street

Do they think they're all asleep?
Do they think that they can't hear?
Or that they only hear what their minds can hold?
Little pitchers overflow.

But the kids they drink up every drop
Every slap every kiss every curse every time that the clothes come off
And the water is wine is piss is blood
And it chokes them in their sleep and they taste it waking up

Carrying around a book you can't read
A face you can't see, a body you can't feel
And it won't sink in, and it won't come out
And this is why the grownups shout

It won't sink in, and it won't come out
And this is why the grownups shout
