A Matter of Time - Badlees

town clock stopped tickin', but it ain't broken
got a problem that no one can define
while the river keeps on a-flowin'
hang on children, it's a matter of time
angry child, impatience growin'
waits with her father in that unemployment line
wihle that river goes on a-flowin'
hang on darlin', it's a matter of time
scarecrow watchin' years of growin'
with floods of asphalt creepin' closer each time
while that river keeps on a-flowin'
hang on brother, it's a matter of time
sparrow, she's sleepin' with no way of knowin'
what's goin' on inside those telephone lines
below, that river keeps on a-flowin'
hang on sister, it's a matter of time
some say god created man, his likeness showin'
i do believe they've got it backwards this time
somehow that river goes on a-flowin'
hang on children, it's a matter of time
tainted river flows to the ocean
that coughs up on the shore its poisonous brine
why don't that river just stop a-flowin'?
hang on children, it's a matter of time
