What a shame, what a shame so quick
Life lost so young and missed
When it’s stubbed out suddenly, turned off like the flick of a switch.
Once you exit out the back door, can’t come round here no more
No re entry, no return, it’s a lesson hard learned

Burning the water brown, it will come to break you down
Burning the water brown and in it’s depths you will drown

Well he ran around town with Charlie
Charlie only makes you sorry
His tracks all lead to nowhere, still you followed without a care
And you never got enough, cause you always bought his bluff
So afraid to come down, that you never got back up

Burning the water brown, it will come to break you down
Burning the water brown and in it’s depths you will drown

Burning the water brown, six feet deep underground
Burning the water brown, will it come again for the next of kin?

You become the company you keep
This water brown it puts you to sleep
Well you become the company you keep
This water brown it’s rivers run deep

If you go chase the dragon, if you date China White
Or if the poison people surround you, it just might end your life.

Burning the water brown, it will come to break you down
Burning the water brown and in it’s depths you will drown

Burning the water brown, six feet deep underground
Burning the water brown, will it come again for the next of kin?
