lyrics

Down stream the scene is muddy
With money, oil and blood.
These days they seem so funny
But water binds us all.

There's something floating
Just beneath the surface of the times
Everything is rising,
Coming in with the tide

Drowning in our arrogance,
we're drowning in our greed
Water flows outside us all
Water flows between

These shores they cave and crumble
Underneath the beat
Machines they rape and plunder
poisoning all we eat

There's nothing flowing from the ranks
but double-speak and lies
I tried to reach the President but
just floated down the line

Drowning in our arrogance
We're drowning in our greed
Water flows outside us all
Water flows between

Build a better future
not another oil pipeline
Business that makes us sick is
far behind the times

Water is life
water flows
Between us and outside

Water flows inside us all
Water brings the light

Water is life
water flows
Between us and outside

Water flows inside us all
Water brings the light
