David Gray - Dead In The Water 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 colour and the creed
The cancer and its seed
Crackles on the mic
Can call it what you like
We're dead in the water now
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the water

    White Ladder was my first DG CD and then this one--by then I was hooked..at least 10 CD'sD still love his music.

  3. Julie B

    I cannot, for the life of me, understand why this has no more likes than it does...

  4. MrSlickxx

    i bought this album, after listening to the other side, and gave it to my dad just after my mum died.He didnt think i had very good taste in music, till he heard it, and its very good he said with tears in his eyes.Hes gone now, but i still have the album, which now brings tears to my eyes.Thank you David...

  5. Andrea P74

    I first listened to this song while in bed with a former Dutch colleague who literally raped me all night long. It goes without saying that in the morning, when she kicked me out of her place, I flew with this cd in my pockets.

    Mike Hunt

    ...what?

  6. Glenn Bagley

    Six are dead in the water.

  7. Cash Back

    White Ladder was over-rated this is DG's best album. So Melodic and Atmospheric. Great to listen properly or just in the background last at night by faded light.

  8. Mark McK

    Sounds like something off a James Bond film. Can't think of which one though...

    John Davies

    Nonafanny?

  9. rachel whitcombe

  10. michael mattice

    Sorrow never sounded so good.

  11. Kelly Courtney

    my favorite album of yours!

  12. BigAngrySwan

    How is this song not more popular? It's one of the best pop songs of the early 2000s.

  13. CONNIE PORTA

  16. SLHbeats1996

    This song feels like a nice hot shower that consists of bittersweet thoughts.

  17. Garrett [REDACTED]

    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.

    Tim Heathfield
