Live – Overcome lyrics

Even now
The world is bleeding
But feeling just fine
All numb in a castle
Where we're always free to choose
Never free enough to find
I wish something would break
'Cause we're running out of time

And I am overcome, yeah
I am overcome
Holy water in my lungs
I am overcome

These women in the street
Pulling out their hair
My master's in the yard
Giving light to the unaware
This plastic little place
Is just a step amongst the stairs

And I am overcome, yeah
I am overcome, baby
Holy water in my lungs, yeah
I am overcome

So drive me out, yeah
Out to that open field
Turn the ignition off
And spin around
Your help is here
But I'm parked in the open space
But locking the gates of love

I am overcome
I am overcome, baby
Holy water in my lungs, yeah
I am overcome, yeah
I am overcome, oh lord
I am overcome, baby
Holy water in my lungs
Holy water, holy water
I am overcome

Beautiful drowning
This beautiful drowning
This holy water
This holy water, is in my lungs
And I am overcome
I am overcome, yeah, yeah
Heh, I, heh, I, heh, I am overcome
I am overcome lord
