Rivers Cuomo – Purification Of Water lyrics

Everybody told me
And I knew it myself
Don't drink the water
It's bad for your health
But God, it's hot, I had no choice
The sun, it burned down on me
Even though they told me so
I drank it deep, drank it deep

Even though, we both know
What we know, we can't say no
The world is blind to what it finds
The world is blind though it shines

Now I kneel
Before the sacred basin
And offer up
The sweetest of all sin
But God, it's hot when I'm alone
The sun, it burns down on me
Even though they told me so
I drank it deep, drank it deep
