lyrics

UNDERNEATH THE FLOOD

I knew love in dripping coffee flooded streets and rust and rotting
I knew love in drunken talking ‘fore the weather changed
And long before the fever dreams, the pale faced machinery
Before the rain came like artillery, pulled me underneath the flood

And underneath the flood it’s quiet
All my thoughts are softly dying
All the rain, the rain is silent
underneath the flood

I was bred an anxious triste, all soft of hand and soft of fist
Through sanity so tedious I’m surging in the blood
My hatred needs no victim oh my hatred like religion
Crucify me while I’m kicking, pull me underneath the flood

And underneath the flood it’s quiet,
All my thoughts are softly dying
All the rain, the rain is silent
Underneath the flood

And underneath the flood I’m drowning
Have no friends to gather round me
Oh my God my greed has found me
Underneath he flood

And Underneath the flood
My tears all turn into the water
Rusted coins and crumpled dollars I sink underneath
I sink underneath

I sit here in torrential silence, coffee keeping up my eyelids
Thoughts of you all turn to violence, I’m trying to find love
But I hate how you believed in me, believed with cold objectivity
So tired I relinquished everything, fell underneath the flood

And underneath the flood it’s quiet
All my thoughts are softly dying
All the rain, the rain is silent
Underneath the flood
