Don't Drink The Water
by Dave Matthews Band

Come out come out
No use in hiding
Come out come out
Can you not see
There's no place here
What were you expecting
No room for both
Just room for me
So you lay your arms down
Yes I will call this home

Away away
You have been banished
Your land is gone and given me
And here I will spread my wings
Yes I will call this home
What's this you say
You feel the right to remain
Then stay and I will bury you
What's that you say
Your father's spirit still lives in this place
I will silence you

Here's the hitch
Your horse is leaving
Don't miss the boat
It's leaving now
And as you go I will spread my wings
Yes I will call this home
I have no time to justify to you
Fool you're blind, move aside from me
All I can say to you my new neighbor
Is you must move on or I will bury you

Now as I rest my feet by this fire
Those hands once warmed here
I have retired them
I can breathe my own air
And I can sleep more soundly
Upon these poor souls
I'll build heaven and call it home

Cause you're all dead now
I live with my justice
I live with my greedy need
I live with no mercy
I live with my frenzied feeding
I live with my hatred
I live with my jealousy
I live with the notion
That I don't need anyone but me
Don't drink the water
There's blood in the water.

My US History teacher played us this song yesterday, the first day of 9th grade. Pretty lit.


Hehe same


My 11th grade English teacher listens to this all the time. And he’s also a TikToker who wants his students to do Vocab.


Awesome Avatar. You rock.


Once upon a time, your teacher did lots of psychedelic drugs.

Sleepy Idiot

You’re a junior now, still lit?

This has a Peter Gabriel vibe to it.

Yes, I believe it does too!


@Jack Blonigen Oh yeah!

Thematically, it's just about a perfect match with "San Jacinto".
