The Barr Brothers – Come In The Water lyrics

Come in the water
There ain't nobody else here
Feel it still when the planes are coming
I just want to lie here
Left our homes, left our friends
Left the wombs we lived in
Spread out along the road
And I've been weak
When my Lord was calling
The water will take our load

On the day that you were born
Legions laid down their arms
On the day you lost control
Legions leapt for your throat

Telling me I'm wrong...
Is the face in the water unmistakable?
Black's the color of the sea
When it's free from the light of the sun
Your crystal ball...
Your faith in the age of medicine
And the children are asleep
With their heads on the butt of a gun
You put up a wall...
Keep the bad ones out
And the good ones in
Fight the battle on your knees
Till' the sea swallows everyone

Come in the water
Or is there somewhere you have to go?
We'll keep a lantern open
In case you loose your way in the cold

On the day that you were born
Legions laid down their arms
On the day they found you out
Left no shadow of a doubt

And the children are asleep
With their heads on the butt of a gun
Fight the battle on your knees
Till' the sea swallows everyone
