I withdrew from the street and all humanlike zones
I'd had it, I'd had it, I was mush to the bones
I covered the windows, I was taking no calls
Then I thought for a month inside the alien walls

Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
But I can recall it all

I was, I was at a loss
What can I do now?
I called up a girl I'd known for so many years
I'd seen her in shock, I'd seen the last of her tears
I admired her style from her toes to her brain
She accepted my plan and so she caught the next train

Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
Now I know, oh
(They don't tell you so)
But I can recall it all

I remember

Back again
Welcome home
We would secretly smile inside our surgical masks
But we were serious too, we accomplished our ask
The schedule was followed, a daughter was born
And so the mother departed, I was left with her form

Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
But I can recall it all

This is where it counts
Her education's begun, I'm intent on success
Her breathtaking beauty it brings out my best
I once knew true love, she won't know another
Life is renewed, my little girl is my lover

Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
Now I know, oh
They don't tell you so
Now I know, oh
(They don't tell you so)
But I can recall it all

    My Interpretationi can't believe no one has posted their interpretation of this song yet.
    i really love this song, it's probably my favorite from richard hell.
    to me this song is about a dude who falls in love with his own daughter and sodomizes her after the mother leaves them. and basically when he says "now i know, they don't tell you so" he is saying that all fathers are in love and want to sodomize their own daughters but "they don't tell you so".

    am i crazy?
