It's in the water baby,
It's in the pills that bring you down,
It's in the water baby,
It's in your bag of golden brown,
It's in the water baby,
It's in your frequency,
It's in the water baby,
It's between you and me.

It's in the water baby,
It's in the pills that pick you up,
It's in the water baby,
It's in the special way we fuck,
It's in the water baby,
It's in your family tree,
It's in the water baby,
It's between you and me.

Bite the hand that feeds...
Tap the vein that bleeds...
Down on my bended knees...

I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you.

It's in the water baby,
It's in the pills that pick you up,
It's in the water baby,
It's in the special way we fuck,
It's in the water baby,
It's in your frequency,
It's in the water baby,
It's between you and me.

Bite the hand that feeds...
Tap the vein that bleeds...
Down on my bended knees...

I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you,
I'd break the back of love for you.

    the singer(guy) is having an affair with someone who is married/involved/engaged/commited to some in his family.He doesnt care how wrong it is because they share a special connection,hes offering to do anything for this chick who is possibly a junkie(tap the vain that bleeds)also something that is wrong.She ends it with him but them seeing each other so often makes her feel guilty because its everywhere it haunts her(it sounds like this chick is commited to his brother or atleast thats my best guess) when he says its in the water i think hes reffering to maybe an intimate situation in the pool when he says its in the pills that bring you down hes probably reffering to either a drug she was on when she was intimate with him or maybe birth control so she wouldnt get pregnant.when he says its in the bag of golden brown that reassures me that their relationship probably started when they were both stoned or medicated(once again veryy bad)when he says its in your frequency i think she is pregnant as in the birth control she was on didnt work or maybe she wasnt on anything since they were both possibly medicated and ofcourse when he says its between you and me i think its reffering to his anger and urge for revenge so hes like Oh its between you and me except i can tell anyone anytime i want,down on bended knees obviously means she wasnt really opposed to the hook up with her husband/fiances brother and now she feels guilty about it so that can either mean she is begging for mercy or she was...you know...ya then the last verse id break the back of love for you strings to her current exzclusive partner he would rid her of him so they could be together//it would be a very nice and very edgey movie line/theme/
