Dispatch - Rice Water Lyrics




It's time to wake up
We're already underway
See the moon in the river, she chases the train so close
To where we want to be

Keep it tight
Hold your head in
There are eyes on the road that'll do us in
And I can't go back again

'Cause we don't even need rice, like we don't need water
We don't even need eyes, we don't even need God
We don't even need peace, like we don't need laughter
We don't even need guns, we don't even need war

Are you ok?
That was a rough one you had the other day
Do you care for a cup of tea
It'll get you high
And where you want to be

Keep it tight
Hold your head in
There are eyes on the road that'll do us in

Keep it tight
Hold your head in
There are eyes on the road that'll do us in
And I can't go back again

"Cause we don't even need rice, like we don't need water
We don't even need eyes, we don't even need God
We don't even need peace, like we don't need laughter
We don't even need guns but they love their war

So pull me up hard like, like I was your last friend in the world
Let me down easy, hurt my arm trying to save that girl
You think she's alright, you think someone grabbed her knees
You think she gonna make it, 2 days to go 'til the river please

Keep it tight
Hold your head in
There are eyes on the road that'll do us in

Keep it tight
Hold your head in
There are eyes on the road that'll do us, sure they'll do us in
And I can't go back again

'Cause we don't even need rice, like we don't need water
We don't even need eyes, we don't even need God
We don't even need peace, like we don't need laughter
We don't even need guns but they love their war

We don't even need flags, like we don't need color
We don't even need lies, but the lie's alright
We don't even need roads, I'll see you there after
Faster than the highest wall they'll build

Do you care for a cup of tea
It'll get you high
High

Dispatch Rice Water Comments
  1. Benjamin Bond

    Especially with everything happening at the US border with Mexico right now, this song brings me to tears. Beautiful guys, honestly. Good job.

  2. Joseph Dodge

    Caught an epic show in Dallas last month and ever since, I just can't get enough of this song. Well done, keep it up guys!

  3. Spiritual Dread

    This will forever be my favorite song from the entire album..
    Maybe even of all time.

  4. Brandon Seagert

    You've done more for me (and I'm sure others) than you'll ever know. Your lyrics come from the heart, and your hearts are gold. Oh, you're pretty good with the instruments as well. You're Inspired for a Reason. There's something you're doing now, or are about to do, that doesn't involve music as the reason or basis, instead it's about changing lives. DO IT, whatever it is. You'll know what I'm talking about when it is in front of you, if it isn't already. I hope your publicist passes this on (or whoever reads these comments for you).

  5. Brandon Seagert

    God Bless You, Sirs.

  6. Mags Zunk

    By far one of my most favorite songs. The lyrics are so powerful. All I can think about when I hear this is all the people struggling to get a better place. <3
