Don't Drink The Water
Don't drink the water, yeah

Come out, come out, no use in hiding
Come now, come now, can you not see?
There's no place here, what were you expecting?
No room for both, just room for me

Say you will lay your arms down
Yes, I will call this home

Away, away, you have been banished
Your land is gone and given me
And here I will spread my wings
Yes, I will call this home

What's this you say?
You feel the right to remain
Then stay and I will bury you

What's that you say?
Your father's spirit still lives in this place
Well, I will silence you

Here's the hitch, your horse is leaving
Don't miss your boat, it's leaving now
And as you go I will spread my wings
Yes, I will call this home

I have no time to justify to you
Fool, you're blind, so move aside for me
All I can say to you, my new neighbor
Is you must move on or I will bury you

Now, as I rest my feet by this fire
Those hands once warmed here
But I have retired them
I can breathe my own air
And I can sleep more soundly
Upon these poor souls
I'll build Heaven and call it home

'Cause you're all dead now

And I live with my justice
And I live with my greedy need
Or I live with no mercy
And I live with my frenzied feeding
I live with my hatred
And I live with my jealousy
Oh, I live with the notion
That I don't need anyone but me

Don't drink the water
Don't drink the water
There's blood in the water
Don't drink the water

Don't drink the water
Don't drink the water
There's blood in the water
Don't drink the water
There's blood in the water
