Black Swamp Water – Black Swamp Water lyrics

How can these my ears deceive me
The recognition hits me hard
I know this song, I know these words
I know I gotta play the part

Black swamp water
Draggin’ me down
Makin’ life shorter
Now I’m gonna drown
I’m gonna drown, I’m gonna

A big black shape with eyes of fire
A hulking, looming, cursed shape
The legacy of some ol’ diver
Crushing me beneath its own weight

Black swamp water

Is it the end, my friend?
The death of me for sure
A poison of self-destruction
A sickness without a cure
