AD lyrics - Take Us To The Water

AD
"Take Us To The Water"

It's burnt in my memory, the face of the crowd
Lost in the desert, they were cryin' out loud
Some voices were cursing, some singing in praise
It's one or the other when the curtain is raised

Lead us to the water, and wash away the fear
Take us to the water that will never disappear
(And get us outta here)

Out in the streets, there's risin' a cry
This isn't livin' but we don't wanna die
Politics and heretics, we've heard it all before
No phony religion, just get us out thru the door

Lead us to the water, and wash away the fear
Take us to the water that will never disappear
(And get us outta here)

I'll give you fountains that never run dry
Like eagles you will fly
No tear in anyone's eye
And the glory won't fade forever, forever on

The treasury's empty, the riches withdrawn
The people are hungry and the food is all gone
The media garbage keeps pumpin' out lies
The weight is oppressive as the spectres arise

Lead us to the water, and wash away the fear
Take us to the water that will never disappear
(And get us outta here)
