Case 795 The Family

Tony Jones stabbed Alice Jones

On their first anniversary

Down in Dallas, Texas

In a small apartment

With nobody present

He pulled out a knife

And he stuck it to her

He left her bleeding

ON the floor in the kitchen

With cake on her fingers

And her wedding ring holding

In her hand was a note

That said the wicked must suffer

And he drove off quickly

To his girlfriend's apartment

But who really suffers in the end?

It's easy enough for us all to pretend that



CHORUS

Everything's all right with the family

Everything is safe here at home

Everything's all right with the family

]The beds are made but there's no sheets on



>From the courtroom stand

Tony said he was sorry

That he was sad and mixed up

And he didn't know what he was doing

That he'd always love Alice

And he begged for forgiveness

So he threw himself

On the mercy of the jury

And he told how his father

Had beat and abused him

Back in grade school

In the basement den

And that maybe prison

Was the best thing for him

And he said, "Oh God, Can you forgive me?" Yeah

But who really suffers in the end?

It's early enough for us all to pretend that



CHORUS



How many days does it take to make us weak?

And how many hours do people spend lonely?

In the heart of the heart the family lay dying

The ruin of a nation lies at our feet, yeah



CHORUS
