Come in the water,
There ain't nobody else here,
Feel it still when the planes are coming,
I just want to lie here,
Left our homes, left our friends,
Left the wombs we lived in,
Spread out along the road,
And I've been weak,
When my Lord was calling,
The water will take our load.

On the day that you were born,
Legions laid down their arms,
On the day you lost control,
Legions leapt for your throat.

Telling me I'm wrong...
Is the face in the water unmistakable?
Black's the color of the sea,
When it's free from the light of the sun,
Your crystal ball...
Your faith in the age of medicine,
And the children are asleep,
With their heads on the butt of a gun,
You put up a wall...
Keep the bad ones out,
And the good ones in,
Fight the battle on your knees,
Till' the sea swallows everyone.

Come in the water,
Or is there somewhere you have to go?
We'll keep a lantern open,
In case you loose your way in the cold.

On the day that you were born,
Legions laid down their arms,
On the day they found you out,
Left no shadow of a doubt.

And the children are asleep,
With their heads on the butt of a gun,
Fight the battle on your knees,
Till' the sea swallows everyone.

    General CommentIs it about baptism? Is it about flight from security, toward the passion that calls for you? Is it about the rising sea on a warming planet? Is it about refugees, Syria...? I just love this song so much. I keep playing it over and over again and it just gets me. I connect with this in so many ways and I can't begin to say how because it's not about me... I just wish I knew what it all means for the artist(s).
