We'll never get free
Lamb to the slaughter
What you gon' do when there's blood in the water?
The price of your greed is your son and your daughter

If you listen real closely
There's a knock at your front door

We'll never get free

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Grandson's song Blood // Water reflect the dark realities of greed, power, and control in society. The opening lines, "We'll never get free, lamb to the slaughter" suggest that people are helpless victims in a system that perpetuates their suffering. The chorus, "What you gon' do when there's blood in the water? The price of your greed is your son and your daughter" warns that the corrupt actions of those in power will ultimately catch up to them and affect their loved ones.


The second verse draws attention to the exploitation of natural resources and the consequences of society's neglect of them. "And the river has run dry, you thought you could go free" highlights the consequences of environmental destruction at the hands of people who value profit over preserving nature. The verse ends by alluding to the idea that change is coming, stating "If you listen real closely, there's a knock at your front door."


The bridge of the song brings a sense of retaliation and a call for accountability. "Beg me for mercy, admit you were toxic," demonstrates that the oppressed will not remain silent and, as a result, the oppressors will have to take responsibility for their actions. The final verse, "I am the people, I am the storm, I am the riot, I am the swarm," reinforces the message that change is coming, with the possibility of a violent uprising against the existing power structures. These lyrics speak to the idea that those in power need to listen to the voices of the oppressed before it's too late.
