water came springing out the side of the wall,
and I guess the same thing will happen to us all.
we don't know how to explain what I mean,
I mean to say it's kind of hard to explain. now,

let them kill me.
let them kill me.
let them kill me.
let them kill me.

water came down through the cracks in the ceiling,
but this time the water had a different feeling.
it's the sort of feeling that is hard to explain,
so, let me put it to you in a different way. now,

let them kill me.
let them kill me.
let them kill me.
let them kill me.

you're the salesman. I'm the buyer.
you're the tractor. I am the tire.
I'm the glass. you're the water that fills me.
I hear them coming. now,

let them kill me.
let them kill me.
let them kill me.
let them kill me. now,

let them kill me. yeah!
let them kill me.
let them kill me.
let them kill me.
let them kill me.

    My Interpretation"water came springing out the side of the wall"
    "water came down through the cracks in the ceiling,"

    "you're the salesman. I'm the buyer.
    you're the tractor. I am the tire.
    I'm the glass. you're the water that fills me"

    I don't think the bit about the water is meant to be taken literally. I think it's about someone realizing that they can't avoid how they feel about a certain person anymore. The 'water' (representative of his or her love) is breaking through the walls (which could be a metaphor for the walls around his or her heart) and threatening to drown this person.
