Water comes up...then recedes
after taking what it needs
swollen brown and roaring by
making all the children cry
singing it's song of freedom
singing it's song of freedom

While war goes on in distant lands
at home we try to understand
a God with better things to do
having some fun with our lives too
singing a song of freedom
singing a song of freedom

oh oh you better mind the water
oh oh you better mind the water
oh oh you better mind the water
oh oh you better mind the water

the bridge is gone
swept away
to points unknown is what they say
body tangled in wire of trees
like strange fruit in the evening breeze

Small town values small town con
small town roads just up and gone
politicians hover in the sky
small town numbers need not apply
but keep singing your song of freedom
keep singing your song of freedom

oh oh you better mind the water
oh oh you better mind the water
oh oh you better mind the water
oh oh you better mind the water

Levees held...
flood walls too
backs are slapping..."I told you"
so a few are buried in soggy ground
while outside nobody makes a sound

What does it take...what does it mean
when destruction it just can't be seen
from an SUV or an easy chair
far away from the camera's glare
singing it's song of freedom
singing it's song of freedom
