Oingo Boingo – Glory Be lyrics

Water's flowing though my veins
Nothing ever stays the same
Water's flowing down my side
Turn the water into wine

Where's the courage I once had
Where's the strength I once possessed
To stand up tall and face the music
Laughing in the face of death

Here's a boy whose hands are bleeding
Though he's never had a scratch
Glory come and glory be
Water's flowing now at last

Chorus
Like a bad dream I once had where
Everyone but me knew something
Walking blind through the burning fields
The dead brigade is on my heels
They follow me--they follow me

Water's flowing though my veins
Nothing ever stays the same
Flows outside for all to see
Water flows through you and me

Nothing ever stays the same
Water turns to wine again
Drink the wine & eat the wafer
Lash the skin & scream together

Chorus

Bridge
Water's flowing through me
Cut me open--let me bleed
Silence is golden
(But) Shout it out--Shout it out--Shout

Water's flowing through my veins
Nothing ever stays the same
Through eyes that once were blind with passion
Everything looks soft and grey
Without color or rough edges
Without fire to burn the skin
Without pride and without reason
Water turns to wine again

Water's flowing through my veins
Tell me now it's all the same
Tell me that it doesn't matter
Tell me everything's alright

Chorus

Water's flowing through my veins
Nothing ever stays the same
Glory come and glory be
Glory come to you and me
Water's flowing through my veins.
