The Tub - The bath water clears his guilt

Bringing my young fears

Draining his guilt the water clears......................

I hear him coming, old truck grumbling

Stumbling up the stairs.

I hear him cussing, broken glasses throwing

Threatening me to tears.

I hear his belt undoing, drunken fury lashing,

Bringing my young fears

I hear the slaps finding, bruises are coming

Staining my skin with smears

I hear the bath filling, his sorrow is falling

Draining his guilt the water clears

I hear the door slamming, darkness is calling

Suffering my torment through the years
