Dave Mattew's Band - Don't Drink the Water



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

Not room for both

Just room for me

So 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 a right to remain

Then stay and I will bury you

What's that you say

Your father's spirit still lives in this place

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, 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

I have retired them

I can breathe my own air

I can sleep more soundly

Upon these poor souls

I'll build heaven and call it home

'Cause you're all dead now

I live with my justice


I live with my greedy need

I live with no mercy

I live with my frenzied feeding

I live with my hatred

I live with my jealousy

I live with the notion

That I don't need anyone but me

Don't drink the water

There's blood in the water
