When I'm in the dark, don't follow me around
When I'm in the dark, yeah, follow me around
When I'm in the dark, dark, oh, oh, okay
I believe you now.
Did the river cut too far below
to ever change the way that the water here flows?
You tried to build the best dam that you can
but that thing is gonna blow...

Somebody said an ugly word!
Yeah, somebody wanted to make himself heard
by everybody - fire in his mind he cast out
down all the side lines.

So now I been getting drunk, drunk, drunk every night
Every night, every night, night in the summer time
Walking around in the back of the house
With no fear in my eyes

The water gets high, and the water gets low,
and the water gets high, where is the water gonna go?

Now you can't even help it what's born in your mind
And you know your daddy comes from a long, long line
time soon, there won't even be a liar anymore
There will just be the lie...

which will inspire me, entirely
my breath and my release

When I'm in the dark don't follow me around
When I'm in the dark, yeah follow me around
When I'm in the dark, dark, oh, oh okay
I believe you now
