Wait for hours in the line again
take your check go home and buy your bread
maybe down a couple drinks instead
don't speak your mind now

and it's time you were asleep
ease your mind and nothing runs so deep
and suicide is all you've left to meet
still you say to me
bartender fix me one more drink

drink alone with me till 5 am
she's waiting up to ask you questions
who, what, when and where was she this time
don't speak your mind now
you'll wake the child

and it's time you were asleep
ease your mind and nothing runs so deep
and suicide is all you've left to meet
still you say to me
bartender fix me one more drink

don't speak your mind now
no one cares
no one cares

and it's time you were asleep
ease your mind and nothing runs so deep
and suicide is all you've left to meet
still you say to me
bartender fix me one more drink
still you say to me
bartender fix me one more drink

    General CommentNo one commented on that one yet?! Too bad ...its actually a great song from TTWS, one of my favorites in fact...okay for the meaning, way I see it this song's from a bartender's point of view just relating a common thing within his line of work : atteding with the typical barfly- The guy whom Instead of spending his hard earned check to sustain his family, would rather drown his sorrows in some bar till early morning ,with the bartender for only company. His situation sucks so much he's even considering suicide (a notion probably made even more appealing due to the counltess drinks he's had...) funny thing with this song's the music which is far from depressing and dark as the underlying theme...well there's my take on it.

    General Commentyeah this is one of their best

    I like the double meaing of "don't speak your mind, you'll wake the child"

    the child at home and the child inside he's drinking away

    General CommentI think the lyrics are a little off in two spots.

    First, in the final prechorus, it should be:

    "Don't speak your mind now
    'Cause no one cares
    No one's there..."

    And in the 2nd verse, it should be

    "You've no answer but the rise in rent" instead of "Who, what, when and where was she this time."

    General CommentIt clearly says "and each time you wanna SEEK to ease your mind when nothing runs so deep as suicide is all you left to me" ..,....,... not what is written here.
