COLD COMFORT
(written 1994/recorded 2002/revised 2005)


hey, little woman, why do you cry
do you look for the reasons why
they pull you under
pull you under
pull you under

hey, shortie, does it rain outside
don’t you know when your eyes get wide
that they pull you under
pull you under
pull you under

i was betrayed, i was despised
i was followed and terrorized
but when they turned away i got out from under
so get out, get out, get out, get out from under

hey, mama, is it tears in your eyes
did you fail to realize
that you’re going under
going under
going under

hey, daddy, is it tv time
getting lucky with the peak of crime
when you’re going under
going under
yes, you’re going under

i was betrayed, i was despised
i was followed and terrorized
but when they turned away i got out from under
so get out, get out, get out, get out from under

hey, sweetie, another sad goodbye
though you weep it won’t make you die
when you’re up from under
up from under
up from under

hey, beggar, found food for a day
makes you live when they’ve gone away
when you’re up from under
up from under
up from under

i was betrayed, i was despised
i was followed and terrorized
but when they turned away i got out from under
so get out, get out, get out, get out from under
