Roland Orzabal – Don't Drink The Water lyrics

This is a religion
No, this is a drag
That man over there is smoking sweet cigarettes
Hey, look at that fag
I had a dream, I saw you swim
Sink to your grave
Down to Davy Jones's locker
Under the waves
Don't say "thank God for simple truths", yeah
Take me to your leader
Take me for a ride
The shutters were never opened
The days I used to hide
All of the things I never knew
I should have said
When you looked like Frida Kahlo
Curled up in bed
Don't say "thank God for simple truths", yeah

Don't drink the water, baby
Don't drink the water, baby
So much emotion
These eyes a strange kind of blue
Deep as the ocean
They named a sea after you
Don't say "thank God for simple truths", yeah

Don't drink the water, baby
Don't drink the water, baby
Don't drink the water, baby
Don't drink the water, baby
