Lyrics

I hate this old place
And what it represents
And I hate who I was
And who I ended up since
But if you learned how to swim
Just in case you'd drown
Don't ask her for the water
'Cause she'll swallow you down

And she's ten miles of peace
And the hardest of nights
And her belfry's got an arch
But her rooftop's all right
But down here in the sewer
I'm smelling a rat
Don't ask her for the whiskey
Cause her water's all that

And what horses we rode
Through what somber fields
With our lovers at war
And the dust on their heels
And the infidels screamed
It's all but a lie
Don't ask her for the water
'Cause she'll teach you to cry
Don't ask her for the water
'Cause she'll teach you to cry

And her weapon of choice
Is a red patterned dress
And a sack full of stones
With her hands on her chest
And a book full of quotes
And a tight fastened lip
Don't ask her for the water
'Cause you'll sink like a ship
Don't ask her for the water
'Cause you'll sink like a ship
