UNDERNEATH THE FLOOD


I knew love in dripping coffee, flooded streets and rust and rotting

I knew love in drunken talking ‘fore the weather changed

And long before the fever dreams, the pale faced machinery

Fore the rain came like artillery, pulled me underneath the flood
                          

And underneath the flood it’s quiet, all my thoughts are softly dying

All the rain, the rain is silent, underneath the flood

 

I was bred an anxious triste, soft of hand and soft of fist

Through sanity so tedious I’m surging in the blood

My hatred needs no victim oh my hatred like religion

Crucify me while I’m kicken pull me underneath the flood

    

And underneath the flood it’s quiet, all my thoughts are softly dying

All the rain, the rain is silent underneath the flood           

And underneath the flood I’m drowning have no friends to gather round me

Oh my god my greed has found me underneath he flood                             

And underneath the flood my tears all turn into the water

Rusted coins and crumpled dollars I sink underneath

I sink underneath


I sit here in torrential silence, coffee keeping up my eyelids

Thoughts of you all turn to violence, I’m trying to find love

But I hate how you believed in me, believed with cold objectivity

So tired I relinquished everything fell underneath the flood
