Enter The Rabbit Hole - 2014

In This Sleeping Town
(Allison / Gowdy)


Swing upon a rope
Watching crickets fly
Wishing on a poison well
See the red dust rise

Day in, day out
When the sun goes down
Day in, day out
And the moon comes round
Day in, day out...
Everybody knows,
But no one ever says a word
In this sleeping town

Little girl loves a backdoor man
And her father cries
Until the water rises high enough
Until his virtue dies, watch it die

Day in, day out
When the sun goes down
Day in, day out
And the moon comes round
Day in, day out...
Everybody knows,
But no one ever says a word
In this sleeping town

And under a crown of thorns
He deigned no reply
And the mob of reckless lust
Began to fade before his eyes

Day in, day out
When the sun goes down
Day in, day out
And the moon comes round
Day in, day out...
Everybody knows,
But no one ever says a word
In this sleeping town
