Barr Brothers: Come in the Water

Postby johnhk4 » Tue Aug 05, 2014 2:06 pm

verse:
come in the water
there ain't nobody else here
and feel it still when the planes are coming
I just wanna lie here

left our homes
left our friends
left the wombs we live in
spread out along the route

i've been weak when my lord was callin
water will take our homes

bridge:
on the day that you were born
legions lay down their arms
on the day you lost control
legions leapt for your throne (throat?)

chorus:
???
???
the face in water unmistakable
blacks the color of the sea when its free from the light of the sun
your crystal ball ????
????
and the children are asleep with their heads on the muzzle of a gun
you ???
????
??
fight a battle on your knees
???? everyone

verse:
come in the water
is there somewhere you have to go?
we'll keep a lantern open
in case you lose your way in the cold

bridge:
on the day that you were born
legions lay down their arms
on the day they found you out
left them shattered ????

chorus: (solos)
blacks the color of sea when it's free from the light of the sun
and the children are asleep with their heads on a ????
??? on your knees ???

chorus:
(Na na na na na na)
Tell me I'm wrong
Is
the face in water unmistakable
black's the color of the sea when its free from the light of the sun
your crystal ball
Faith in the age of medicine
and the children are asleep with their heads on the butt of a gun
you put up a wall
Keep the bad ones out, keep the good ones in

fight a battle on your knees while the sea swallows everyone

verse:

is there somewhere you have to go?
we'll keep a lantern open
in case you lose your way in the cold

bridge:
on the day that you were born
legions lay down their arms
on the day they found you out
left no shadow of a doubt

chorus: (solos)
and the children are asleep with their heads on the butt of a gun
fight the battle on your knees while the sea swallows everyone
The world really is magic
