lyrics

I don't know if you really want to know
what I've been thinking about these days
Split rail fences, for civil defenses
trying not to rot away
you don't have to give up what you've got
but you've got to accept the change
I don't know if you really want to know
what I've been thinking about these days

daughters disappearing
in the shadows of the state
father is fearing the truth has come too late
mother is trying to save the family name
but I don't know if you really want to know
what I've been thinking about these days



Lost all senses, she was defenseless
left on the rail that day
you don't know her name
but can you recognize her face
they took away her nova cane
but the bills they left to pay
I don't know if you really want to know
what I've been thinking about these days

father is feeling
the little girls' pain
but he can't help heal it
cause the piggies broke the bank
his fingers are clinging to
the life that slipped away
and I don't know if you really want to know
what I've been thinking about these days

I don't know if you really want to know
what I've been thinking about these days
only a mother's mother can make it go away
she's in trouble cause their taking away
the reigns
I don't know if you really want to know
what I've been thinking about these days

Split rail fences trying not to rot away
lower you're defenses let the people have a say
I know you're not the one who put them up
in the first place
but I don't know if you really want to know
what I've been thinking about these days.
