Walk On Water

This song is by David Byrne and appears on the album Look Into the Eyeball (2001).

He can walk - on the water
But he can't stop fallin' in
He's livin' underwater
But he don't know how to swim

He's got amplifiers, microphones
Record players, God only knows
All the girls say, "Shut up and gimme the groove"

He keeps those hits a coming through
His blood is pourin out for you

In the church, Mama's ashes
Can't fill those empty spaces
Spaced out in the middle of town

One house is big enough for two
We'll fill it up before we're through

Wake up - the house is shaking
Get up - the dead awaken
Let go - you know that you can
Get up - you sleepy babies
Hello - you naked ladies
Walk on - you know that you can

Get up - you men and women
Walk on - like fishes swimming
Let go - you know that you can

Walk on the water - everyone drowns
My mama told me - I'm lost & I'm found
Walk like an angel - take off your shoes
Special occasion - scary and true
You dancin' babies - doin' all right
Your mouth is movin' - kiss me sometime
Richard and Lisa - we're goin' down
Jason and Shawna - dance with someone

Walk on the water
Walk on the water
