lyrics

It starts with a man
But it ends with the kids
You think you’re building your tower
But you’re burning your feet
You call it progress
I think you’ve regressed
Too cold to notice

To gain some ground
For a noble cause
Isn’t noble at all

My head’s going under
Under the water
Please come to me faster
Can anyone hear my cry
Please God make me light up
I don’t want to die here tonight
Under the water
Under the water

It starts with bang
And then descending quick
You think your finding your power
But it’s making you weak
You call it process
How dare you protest
Too cold to focus

What’s it worth
Was it worth the cost
When you see them fall

My head’s going under
Under the water
Please come to me faster
Can anyone hear my cry
Please God make me light up
I don’t want to die here tonight
Under the water
Under the water

If you should come
I’m afraid; I can’t speak
Cos they’re dropping bombs
On the weak and diseased
And if you should come
I’m afraid; I can’t speak
Cos they quoted psalms
Know not what they speak

Under the water (Repeat x12)

(Help us we’re ready (Repeat))
