    [ music: Dennis Drew/words: Natalie Merchant ]



    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.
