Dead in the Water
Grieves Lyrics


(Chorus)
What did you want from me? You're knockin' on doors tryin' to wake up the beast.
Head full of thorns, you wanna settle the score,
You wanna level the board. You wanna level me down.
What did you want from me? You're knockin' on doors tryin' to wake up the beast.
Head full of thorns, you wanna settle the score,
You wanna level the board. You wanna level me down.

(Verse)
I find it funny how your heart don't work
And that tattooed diamond on your chest spells HURT.....how predictable.
Just another shark in the blood stream, swimmin' its way up stream
To figure out where love sleeps, and kill it like it must be stopped.
I don't see the reason in your logic, I just understand the plot
And if i don't find it outta here, i swear to god I'll pop
From the needles you've been stickin' in me, tryin' to throw me off when i fly straight.
Just another meal for the vultures, picked into pieces and buried under the boulders.
'Til the last cracked molar is found, I'm just a victim with his soul torn out of him
And shot to the ground...without the glory, broken, and that's the way that you like it.
With the war horns fired up, stimulating excitement.
And I can see why the devil put you in ranks but shoulda
Asked you what you wanted before you flashed me the fangs.
You've got a problem.

(Chorus)
What did you want from me? You're knockin' on doors tryin' to wake up the beast.
Head full of thorns, you wanna settle the score,
You wanna level the board. You wanna level me down.
What did you want from me? You're knockin' on doors tryin' to wake up the beast.
Head full of thorns, you wanna settle the score,
You wanna level the board. You wanna level me down.

(Verse)
I've been living in this Winter you provided me,
And eatin all the pages of this history inside of me.
For what? Just so you can run around the graveyard and scream into the heavens
And sink the boat that you came on? I've taken all the pain I can.
And plan on jumping off this ship before I lose it and never know who I am.
Before this vessel ever gets in sight of land I'm gonna dive into the waters underneath it
And take my chances at hand 'til it drowns out. You've got a perfect way of killing me.
An angel in appearance, with a smile like a guillotine. And I don't think that you could ever change.
Pain is your nicotine, and fightin' me is the flame, and it stays that way.
Cuz everything is frozen in your steps, and displayed as a trophy to your unexpected guests.
You're a monster. And i can smell it rotting in your teeth,
Just hope that you can figure out what you've been lookin' for, and leave.
You've got a problem.

(Chorus)
What did you want from me? You're knockin' on doors tryin' to wake up the beast.
Head full of thorns, you wanna settle the score,
You wanna level the board. You wanna level me down.
What did you want from me? You're knockin' on doors tryin' to wake up the beast.
Head full of thorns, you wanna settle the score,
You wanna level the board. You wanna level me down.

Isidro Herrera

imagining Aesop Rock & Grieves doing a record together, that'll be the best cd ever.

One of the things I love about hip hop is that it is versatile, with so many ways of expressing personal style. Therefore, all this talk about who is the best, in my opinion, needs to be laid to rest.

Alex Linthicum

This is the exact song that introduced me to such an extraordinary artist. Grieves ftw!

Texas / UK connection needs to happen soon. Would love to be on with Grieves ! Our music would be dope 👍

Skully Dege

he has perfect poetry and i have been inspired by him a lot. :)

I think it's Grieves's low key, haunting vocals during the choruses that make his songs so addictive. You don't get a lot of rappers that can sing like him. He's awesome all around!

Amazing record.
