“Even though you think
to push me from the bath
into the sink
I can still get clean
from everything obscene

So just pass me the soap
and I will scrub so hard
to have the hope
that one day I’ll be free
and flies won’t follow me

But if the bath is black
and the soap is old
you’re turning the hot tap
but the water is cold
try as you might
everything you’ve done
has been washed out

And you’re not coming home tonight

All this mess undressed
I’ll put you to the test
just try your best
put your apron on
I feel it’s been too long

Since you last made me laugh
instead my hands
have stuck to you with tar
and I can’t get them off
I leave prints on the clock


But if the bath is black
and the soap is old
you’re turning the hot tap
but the water is cold
try as you might

Everything you’ve prayed
for won’t be done until
you’ve paid for all your hours
and you’re not coming home tonight
you’re not coming home tonight
you’re not coming home tonight
(all this mess undressed)
you’re not coming home
(I’ll put you to the test
just try your best)

Cause if the bath is black
and the soap is old
you’re turning the hot tap
but the water is cold
(you’re not coming home)
(I’ll put you to the test
just try your best)

Try as you might everything you’ve
(tonight) (all this mess undressed)
try as you might everything you’ve
(you’re not coming home)
(I’ll put you to the test
just try your best)

The bath is black
and the soap is old
you’re turning the hot tap
but the water is cold
Try as you might
everything you’ve prayed
for won’t be done until
you’ve paid for all your hours

And you’re not coming home tonight”.
