​Echoes In The Well

This song is by Corrosion of Conformity and appears on the album Blind (1991).

The water drips from wells of shame
Spilling through these words (of blame)

Listen to the battle cries of a race that knows
It's dying
Read the bleeding words of those
Who fell the wheel is at their heal
Then somebody tells me that's the way it was
Meant to be
These things will never be

All they see is nothing
They just hear the echoes in the well
All they see is nothing
Silence of the sin, the echoes in the well

Stare deep into the frigid eye of a man
Who knows he's lying
These are those men who make mistakes
But don't erase the pain
Then they whisper to me that's the way it
Was meant to be
These things will never be

There are those who find these times a crime
And those whose souls will never mind
Or those who need to plant these seeds
Living in sin's been induced again
By beating the paths of downtrodden men
Or those who think they know their souls
Stab deep in their hearts and listen to the echoes...

All they hear are the echoes in the well
