lyrics

if there is one thing i’ve learned, it’s:
never trust the water
her ambition is solely treacherous
and she will wave, then without warning
she will drag you under, darling
cradle you in her aquamarine arms
and please forgive me
if all this seems like idle talk
but i have witnessed so many curious things
please forgive me
if all this seems like idle talk
though you would hunger for her comforts
the fire fasts until she’s summoned
then ferocious and atrocious are her appetites
and she will tease in careful measure
she will take her awful pleasures
she will haunt you, she will taunt you
she will swallow you whole
and please forgive me
if all this seems like idle talk
but i have witnessed so many curious things
please forgive me
if all this seems like idle talk
yes, i have witnessed so many curious things
please forgive me
if all this seems like idle talk
if there is one thing i’ve learned, it’s:
never trust the water
if there is one thing i’ve learned, it’s:
never trust the water
and the wind and the waves
are washing over me
and the wind and the waves
are washing over me
and the wind and the waves
are washing over me
and the wind and the waves
are washing over me
and the wind and the waves
are washing over me
and the wind and the waves
are washing over me
wash over me
wash over me
