lyrics

Watermark

When the cold, cold waters
Drain away into the sea
They leave behind a broken landscape.
They leave a mark on me.

When the muddy, muddy waters
Cuts this city like a knife
Pours into places left unguarded
Through empty spaces in my life.

The lines are down
The bridge is out
And I don’t even care.
Let the cold, cold waters
Wash on over me.

It’s a peculiar situation
Stranded here up on a roof
I needed something to hold onto
Needed reason, needed proof.

Now my life is floating downstream.
Piece by piece it breaks away.
And this refuge is growing ever smaller
I would have it no other way.

The lines are down
The bridge is out
But I don’t even care.
Let the cold, cold waters
Wash on over me.
Let the muddy muddy waters
Take me down and set me free.

You can try to swallow me.
The swollen creek; the angry sea;
The tide that rips; the sunken coast.
I’ll pass right through you like a ghost.

You won’t even drag me down
My roots were set on solid ground.
Though running fast and running strong
You’ll pass right through me like a song.

When the cold, cold waters
Drain away into the sea
They leave behind a broken landscape.
They leave a mark on me.
They leave their mark on me.

Oh the muddy waters
Oh the muddy waters
Oh the muddy waters

They leave their mark on me.
