​Don't Drag The River

This song is by Tony Iommi and appears on the album The 1996 DEP Sessions (2004).

There is a place on the wrong side of town
It's a curse whenever I go
And I have to forget that the thoughts in my head
Let me down I want you to know
Now I don't know you but you are my jailer
I've been sentenced by the jury below
Now it scares me to death and I just cannot let
This cage that they put over me

Don't drag the river I hear the voices underground
Don't drag the river I go to sleep without a sound

You can turn out the daylight I'll be gone in the morning
You can try to burn down the sun
I got to make you believe that I did not deceive
No I did not hurt anyone
You can make me slave you can make me a number
But I'm not the one who lied
'Cause they threw away the key and it just cannot be
In this cage that they put over me

I'm in a state of madness I panic in my head
They're going to pull me under no matter what I said
I taste the fear inside me I'm going to break my vow
And now the hound is calling it's going to take me down

Don't drag the river there's only my love for you
Don't drag the river there's only my love for you
