​Buried In Water

This song is by Dead Man's Bones and appears on the album Dead Man's Bones (2009).

What lamb to its slaughter
Buried in water

Down
Under the ground
There's a town there
I've been down there
In the middle of the lake
I hold your hand for goodness' sake

When the women and the kids are asleep
The walls there
And the skin of the sheep
So lock all the windows and doors
The Devil's coming for you and yours

Love was all that it could give
But it tides so other towns could live
They don't bury bodies from the drowned
But they drowned our little town

Like a lamb to his slaughter
Buried in water
Buried in water
Buried in water

When the leaves
Go floating away
In the pale moonlight
Bury anchors in our garden
And we can let our heartbeats go

Love was all that it could give
But it tides so other towns could live
They don't bury bodies from the drowned
But they drowned our little town

Love was all that it could give
But it tides so other towns could live
They don't bury bodies from the drowned
But they drowned our little town

We're like the lambs to its slaughter
Buried in water
Buried in water
Buried in water
