Everybody wanted me
and I knew it myself
don't drink the water
it's bad for your health

But god, it's hot I had no choice
The sun it burned down on me
even though they told me so
I drank it deep, drank it deep

Even though, we both know
What we know, we can't say no
The world is blind to what it finds
The world is blind though the sun shines

Now I kneel
before the sacred basin
And offer up
the sweetest of all sin

But god, it's hot I had no choice
The sun it burned down on me
even though they told me so
I drank it deep, drank it deep

Even though, we both know
What we know, we can't say no
The world is blind to what it finds
The world is blind though it shines

    General CommentYeah, the mp3 version available sounds like a home recording - but it's pretty amazing all the same! i didn't like this song at first, but after listening to it a few times, i found that it had grown on me considerably. amazing lyrics, melody and vocals.
