The Fence

run your fingers along the fence
run your fingers along the fence
you don't have to cross over
you don't have to make sense
run your fingers along the fence
run your fingers along the fence
run along

don't need a wife, don't need a dog
don't need some snappy dialogue
you were born in the country
you were born in the fog
so run your fingers along the fence
run your fingers along the fence
when the dark's too familiar
and the light's too intense
run your fingers along the fence
run your fingers along the fence
run along

the grass is greener than it oughta be
it's crying out "somebody water me
i got drowned in pesticide
i got no more friends to hide
i just stood here while they died
and now i grow at their expense"

so run your fingers along the fence
run your fingers along the fence
you don't have to cross over
you don't have to make sense
what if it peels or starts to rust
what if it shocks you in disgust
you were born out of wedlock
you were born out of lust
so run your fingers along the fence
run your fingers along the fence
run along

now what's the point, you be the judge
your honor guilty to the touch
it's only time you're up against
and at your feet's the evidence
so run your fingers along the fence
run your fingers along the fence
run along
