Dead in the Water
David Gray Lyrics


People stand in line
People stand in line
People stand in line
A premonition of
The killers angel eyes
An Armageddon sky
Tell it like it is
It's like the old man says
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the water.

They come from miles around
They come from miles around
They come from miles around
In avarice and love
To suckle on the blood
Of some forgotten God
Sell it like it is
It's like the old man says
We're dead in the water now
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the water.

A simple act of faith
A simple act of faith
A simple act of faith
A celebration of
The color and the creed
The cancer and its seed
Crackles on the mic
Call it what you like
We're dead in the water now
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the water.

I'm only sixteen and I've been only listening to David Gray's songs and they're calming and I feel either relaxed or feel like dancing. He's a Legendary singer.
