"Dirty Water" as written by and Francis/young Rossi....
It's as bad as I remember
If I remember it at all
I want to take you higher
But I'm afraid we would fall
I'm choking on the smoke of my last cigarette
If there's peace beyond this pasture
I haven't seen it yet

I'm going down, down, down
Choke my screams
I used to dream
But dreams are empty
Clean me...

I can't pick the meat decaying in my teeth
I have to numb my gums first
Pretend you're asleep
I'm leary of your pity
I'm sorry for my daughter
I can't see the bottom
Wash me dirty water
