"In the Water" as written by and Jesse Lacey....
In the water, they sort it out
They were waist to neck in December somehow
In the water, they twist and shout
They were born again, so they can start living now
In the water, they saw the face
Of the man who was haunted, chained and disgraced
In the water, they asked them both
"How did you get the gold without digging any holes?"

Never had it any other way
Drowning in the grace
Never had a chance to break apart our heart for them to see
It's really a disgrace

"Hide your daughters", the old men say
You were young once before, you know how we get our way
Feel the horror with no delay
We all see what once was beautiful has turned and old and grey

Never had it any other way
Drowning in the grace
Never had a chance to break apart our heart for them to see
It's really a disgrace

I can't fake it enough
Can't say it enough
Can't do it enough
I can't make it enough
Can't fake it enough
I don't want it enough
So everyone'll wait

Never had it any other way
Drowning in the grace
Never had a chance to break apart our heart for them to see
It's really a disgrace

I can't say it enough
Can't sing it enough
So I'll find another way

And we sing this morning that wonderful and grand ol' message
And I don't know about you, I never get tired of it

The seven years

    General CommentI think the “hide your daughters” line is extremely haunting knowing he was allegedly grooming barley teenagers.
