"Dead In The Water" as written by Francis Dominic Nicholas Rossi and Andrew Steven Bown....
People stand in line
People stand in line
People stand in line
A premonition of
The killers angel eyes
An Armageddon sky
Tell it like it is
It's like the old man says
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the water.

They come from miles around
They come from miles around
They come from miles around
In avarice and love
To suckle on the blood
Of some forgotten God
Sell it like it is
It's like the old man says
We're dead in the water now
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the water.

A simple act of faith
A simple act of faith
A simple act of faith
A celebration of
The color and the creed
The cancer and its seed
Crackles on the mic
Call it what you like
We're dead in the water now
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the water.

    General CommentGray started singing the words "Dead in the water" and then simply added other ambiguous verses. "It's just sort of mish mash, not to demystify it too much," he said. "It's like my earlier albums in that it's slightly more aggressive, more controversial. I'm not really sure what it's about, but it's got an anti-religious bent to it. It seems to be critical. ... And I like starting the record with it, because it immediately is completely different from White Ladder."
