Stuart Davis – Jonah lyrics

The dogs are still expecting
your father is a general
Benjamin's a murderer
Your sister is a sponge
your mother is worker

Jonah, I ran into your mom
she isn't aging very well
sometimes I think her face is gonna burst
cause hiding pain is work, and your mother is a worker

Jonah, some thoughts about your sister
her eyes are always closed
ever since that day she's held a certain pose
it's not a coma, she's the opposite of numb
some people soak pain up, and your sister is a sponge
and your mother is a worker

Jonah, I still see Ben
but if I bring your name up the conversation ends
cause he loaned you the shotgun you took up to the cabin
whatever people say, he only hears the words 'Benjamin's a murderer'
your sister is a sponge, your mother is a worker

Jonah, Jonah, news about your dad
you thought he drank before
now he drinks, his body is at war and his stomach's never full
cause your father is a general, Benjamin's a murderer,
your sister is a sponge your mother is a worker

Jonah, they gave me your goddamn dogs
I'm sick of what they do
they bark at everything until they see it isn't you
cause the dogs are still expecting, your father is a general
Benjamin's a murderer, your sister is a sponge your mother is a worker
