"Turn On The Water" as written by and Mccollum Dulli....
Untie the boat, and turn on the water.
I'm gone; I'm gone; I'm gone.
It's alright.
Untie the boat, and turn on the water.
I'm gone; I'm gone; I'm gone.
It's alright.
Carry me out deep into the ocean.
Save me a prayer, and let me over the side.
Untie the boat, and turn on the water.
I'm gone; I'm gone; I'm gone.
But, it's alright.
And, you can hold me down,
But don't you let me breathe.
Let it wash all over me.
Let it wash all over me.
They cut off my head, child and gave it away
And poisoned the people I wanted to save
And left me here dark and rolling around.
I'm gone; I'm gone; I'm gone.
But, it's alright.

    General CommentLook at the first line, this is very clear to every heroin junkie ;)

    I heard Dulli explain this text in an interview.

    Imo one of the best Afghan Whigs songs.
