lyrics

"Water" - January 2011 (re-mixed for World Water Day 2011)

Verse 1.

Water,
You often feel nice,
But sometimes you're ice;

But ice cools us down,
And we're glad you're around,
Please stay for a while;

And you're often a gas,
But I never question,
What state you're in;

'Cause you've been around,
Much longer than me,
And the places you've been,
You've swam through the oceans;

With mermaids and submarines.

Chorus.

And you're often outside,
But more often than not,
You are inside with us,
You're the cradle for us,
That's why all the fuss;

And H20,
Where do you go,
When it's too hard to flow?
When it's 40 below,
You go home;

To mermaids and submarines,
And the things in-between.

Verse 2.

Water,
You treated us nice,
But these plastics ain't right;

A tsunami of sounds,
And a visual landscape,
Of things that were found;

Like cigarette lighters,
And bottles galore,
Nature's not your whore;

And we navigate the globe,
With a satellite link,
And you don't read a map,
And you can't even think - for yourself;

So many of you,
Don't - give - a fuck,
But your time is up;

And water,
You often feel nice,
And sometimes you're life;

Chorus.

And you're often outside,
But more often than not,
You are inside with us,
You're the cradle for us,
That's why all the fuss;

And H20,
Where do you go,
When it's too hard to flow?
When it's 40 below,
You go home;

To mermaids and submarines,
And the things in-between.
