There's poison in the water
but I'm thirsty just the same.
I've got this way of turning water into wine.
Know the truth and I'm telling lies.
I know the truth but I keep it inside.
Forked my tongue and I'm telling lies.
And I know that we're all dying,
before the outlet just keeps it away,
keeps it away.
There's truth in the lies I tell
There's silence and it's all around
There's sound in the city where it's all drowned out
If I only had a match I'd burn it to the ground
There's a war and it's always inside me
Overshadowed by docile blue eyes.
It never matters 'cause the sheep are all blind.
And if the Devil had a face it would look like mine.
