A thousand people cling to bottles
To powdered babies, and leather bibles
Oh, oh, oh
I'm gonna find it, I'll find it
I’ll find it, I’ll find it right by me
And I’m gonna throw me, my body
Make sweet the water once bitter to me

I’m gonna hush
Til it’s done
I'm gonna hush
Til it's done

A thousand people cling to bottles
To powdered babies and leather bibles
Open your creekmouth, your cankered waters
Rising out, rising out, you’re rising out, you're rising out
I’m gonna hush til it’s done

    General CommentSuch a clever and awe-inspiring song. I really like the parallel between "Make sweet the water once bitter to me" and "Open your creekmouth, your cankered waters".

    My Interpretation"Make sweet the water once bitter to me" could be a reference to Exodus, where Moses asks the Lord to make the water sweet so the people of Israel could drink it.


    Exodus 15: 22-25

    22 Then Moses made Israel set out from the Red Sea, and they went into the wilderness of Shur. They went three days in the wilderness and found no water. 23 When they came to Marah, they could not drink the water of Marah because it was bitter; therefore it was named Marah.[a] 24 And the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” 25 And he cried to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a log,[b] and he threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.
