[Intro]
I'm sounding the drums of war said the man at his desk
I will go fight your wars said the boy as he stood
and he stood and he stood and was aware that he stood
I will go fight your was said the boy as he stood

and are you afraid to die said the man at his desk
No [?] it's you [?] are afraid but I'm prepared said the boy
and he stood and he stood and was aware that he stood
I'm prepared but your scared said the boy as he stood

and the ringing of the bells said the man at his desk
oh the ringing you to hell said the boy as he stood
and he stood and he stood and was aware that he stood
is that ringing you to hell said the boy as he stood
Don't Drink the Water
main lyrics
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

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 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
fool, 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
well, 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 this home
'cause you're all dead now

And I live with my justice
and I live with my greedy need
oh, I live with no mercy
and I live with my frenzied feeding
I live with my hatred
and I live with my jealousy
and 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 wa--me, yeah

Don't drink the water
don't drink the water
there's blood in the water
don't drink the water
blood in the water
(justice
and I live with my greedy need
and I live with no mercy
and I live with my frenzied feeding
and I live with my hatred
and I live with my jealousy
and I live with the notion
that I don't need anyone but me
and I live with my justice
and I live with my greedy need
and I live with no mercy
and I live with my frenzied feeding
and I live with my hatred
and I live with my jealousy
and I live with the notion
I don't need anyone but me)
