Watering Hole


Words and Music by Nick Vander Vliet

we're all needing something with substance
something in the center of it all
to bring us back from spinal cracks
and whittling our very fingers to the bone

we're all going down, down, down
we're all going down to the watering hole
we're all going down, down, down
to that great big watering hole in the ground

we beat the sun up slowly rising
and rinse the dirty day before
of mindless tasks that people ask
and lift our vision from the floor

we're all going down, down, down
we're all going down to the watering hole
we're all going down, down, down
to that great big watering hole in the ground

a sigh is somewhere in between
what you should say and what you mean
our pay that's spent on booze and rent
is half of a half of a half...
of what the overseer sees


we're all going down, down, down
we're all going down to the watering hole
we're all going down, down, down
to that great big watering hole in the ground

ah, you're lucky just to have a job
what, with this economy
ah, you're lucky just to have a job


the perfect slave is one who thinks he's free
