from waters to the west i settled down
but in the belly of the city i carve my ground
and as the days go by and the seasons change
a red tide comes in from the bay

there goes cookie with his knife
there goes cookie with his knife
there goes cookie with his knife
with his knife

i took a dirty, dirty wind from my chest
and blew it down to the water's edge

there goes cookie with his knife
there goes cookie with his knife
there goes cookie with his knife
with his knife

i'm gonna take off my clothes,
and empty my bones into the river
i'm gonna take off my clothes,
and empty my bones into the river
i'm gonna take off my clothes,
and empty my bones into the river

i took the wind and made it speak
and woke up all the freaks
i taught the cripples how to walk
and send them running to the peaks

til everyone was naked
they were naked, they were raw
i drew a line down in the sand and made them fight a war

but they ran around in circles
so i rationed all their thoughts
i took away their systems, i took away their laws

and some were on their knees,
and some were swinging from the trees
and the ones left to walk in sync
i taught them to believe

oh, to believe
that i could rain, rain on this whole parade
and watch it roll, watch it roll away..
