Foo Fighters - Dirty Water Lyrics




I've been drinking dirty water
But I've been here before, after all
The witching hour is upon us
So you and I can sing haunted songs

In my dreams I'm climbing ladders
And then I tumble down, rung by rung
And I keep on falling faster
The heart is echoing, on and on
On and on

I feel an earthquake coming on
I feel the metal in my bones
'Cause I'm a natural disaster
You're the morning after all my storms

You're my sea of poison flowers
Standing in the sun, row by row
I've been drinking dirty water
The taste of sweet revenge, best served cold
All we know

I feel an earthquake coming on
I feel the metal in my bones
I'm a natural disaster
And you're the morning after all my storms

Bleed dirty water
Breathe dirty sky
Bleed dirty water
Breathe dirty sky
Bleed dirty water
Breathe dirty sky
Bleed dirty water
Breathe dirty sky
Bleed dirty water
Breathe dirty sky
Bleed dirty water
Breathe dirty sky

I feel an earthquake coming on
I feel the metal in my bones
'Cause I'm a natural disaster
Dirty water in my blood

I feel a moment coming on
Heavy metal in my bones
'Cause I'm a natural disaster
You're the morning after all my storms

  32. Jade Lucia

    I've been drinking dirty water
    But I've been here before, after all
    The witching hour is upon us
    So you and I can sing haunted songs
    In my dreams I'm climbing ladders
    And then I tumble down, rung by rung
    And I keep on falling faster
    The heart is echoing, on and on
    On and on
    I feel an earthquake coming on
    I feel the metal in my bones
    I'm a natural disaster
    You're the morning after all my storms
    You're my sea of poison flowers
    Standing in the sun, row by row
    I've been drinking dirty water
    The taste of sweet revenge, best served cold
    All we know
    I feel an earthquake coming on
    I feel the metal in my bones
    I'm a natural disaster
    And you're the morning after all my storms
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    I feel an earthquake coming on
    I feel the metal in my bones
    'Cause I'm a natural disaster
    Dirty water in my blood
    I feel a moment coming on
    Heavy metal in my bones
    'Cause I'm a natural disaster
    You're the morning after all my storms

  36. Jamie Charlesworth

    https://youtu.be/W3rh8xlm228

  37. Paul Gibbons

    Anyone know what guitar effect Dave Grohl is using on his guitar during the chorus? Sounds like a Phase 90 type thing?

  38. Tobias

    This song is an instant Foo’s classic. Bee Gee-esque harmonies and heavy rock with Dave’s voice and it all climaxes at 4:19 - just awesome 🤘

  39. outlawkai

    They played this last night at the garden. Was an awesome show!

  40. Fredt la bosh

    masterpiece.

  41. Joe baggins

    This has to be about geoegineering and weather modification...

  42. Kaleb Carroll

    Everyone in the area I live in got a community alert message telling people not to drink tap water in the area due to an algae bloom in the local reservoir, ironically this was what I was listening to when I got the message

  43. Fandingus

    I’m in love with this song

  44. Benadryl Cumberbund

    Hearing this song live was out of this world.

    Jesse Hays

    Bucket list to see them live!

    Moth

    Yeah you bet it was.
    I was at the Australian concert and it was the best thing ever.

    Rachel Buckley

    Agree worth every penny

    Strange Pibcuo

    oh hi, bend a patch cucumber bound

    Cristian GomezCel

    I bet it was, hopefully it'll be in the setlist in October's concert in Colombia

  45. Astros Fan

    Saw y’all in concert in Austin. Simply amazing

  46. bizarrebehavior1974

    So is Dave also Wolverine? Wait, is he both Wolverine AND Jesus now? Come on, man, there's only so much awesomeness we can take...

  47. melanie townsend

  48. melanie townsend

  49. Hazel._.draws

    Heard this at hot topic and phisicaly stopped and instintly loved it!!!

    bizarrebehavior1974

    "physically'
    "instantly"
    Sorry but I can't help myself.
    Also, "kitties".

    Hell on Wheels

    Ms Debiann1957 Your name reminds me of Debian Linux. I used to use it. Lol. Sorry.

  50. Nick A007

    Make it another hit single.

  51. HurricaneDij39

    Blast off @ 2:43

  52. Jager's waifu

    this has to be my new favorite song noe

  53. J-man 80

    Should have named this song "My WEENer"

  54. Isabelle

    It's got a bit of a Red Hot Chili Peppers feel to it. I like that.

  55. David King

    Whenever I listen to this song, I imagine a small town that finds "Dirty" water that slowly drives everybody that drinks it crazy. At first they think the miracle water is a god send. There is no savior that tells people and nobody realizes it. Eventually, people worship it and make altars as they fade more and more into insanity. Then, The town just succumbs to the insanity and kill each other in one huge gory beautiful mess until there is nothing left but "Dirty" water.

    trevgreg2

    Write up the video treatment and send it to them!

  56. jakabomb97

    Reminds me of Marigold.

  57. jshada11

    reminds me of the early 90s and also has a 70s vibe to it

  58. Champ

    Mix of 1970s music and modern, done in the best way possible! One song fro, this album has to go into ytrw2k17

  59. Jeffrey Leeds

    I root for the natural disasters

  60. Ramiro Salinas

    Foo Fighters kick ASS!!!!!!!

  61. Samuel Lebron

    I love you foo fighters

  62. Alex Pindell

    Can't get past the ads

    trevgreg2

  63. Taylor B

    You're the moment after all my storms. ❤

    Eleonor Dazel Dynel

    *morning

  64. Adam Porter

    Here for Inara George

  65. GTR&ELT Steve

    Great flanging effects :)

  66. Samuel Lebron

    I love you

  67. Eric Fleischman

    The base line when the get done with the first part breaks into something amazing with the octaves. Best song so far listening through for the first time.

  68. Offbrand Weasley

    Anyone who says that Foo Fighters suck has never listened to real music.

    Dwight K Schrute Beet Farmer

    I agree. The fact that Dave went from playing drums in Nirvana to singing and playing guitars just proves how talented he is. The rest of the band is very talented too.

    Rogan Langley

    EXCACTLY

  69. Julian Potter Music

    When it starts getting heavy tho. Any prog fan realize that sounds like Neal Morse?

  70. aaron b

    Makes me wanna roll a doobie...

  71. Maaike Stienstra

    Climate change I think.

  72. sonic jet

    THIS SONG STARTS OFF SLOW BUT THEN IT REALLY KICKS INTO OVERDRIVE :)
    THIS IS WHY WE LOVE THE FOO FIGHTERS IN THE FIRST PLACE, THEY REALLY KNOW HOW TO WRITE GOOD ROCK SONGS WITH MELODY AND THEN WITH LOUD DISTORTED ELECTRIC GUITARS AND VERY CLEVER INTELLIGENT LYRICS THAT MAKE SENSE MUSICALLY AND SONICALLY, CONCRETE AND GOLD IS BY FAR SOME OF THE BEST STUFF THIS BAND HAS MADE IN A LONG TIME BESIDES THEIR OTHER WONDERFUL ALBUMS.
    DIRTY WATER ROCKS HARD BUT SOUNDS GOOD ON THE RADIO TOO.

  73. David CM

    This song starts out sitting on a cool beach watching the surfers ride the waves and the ladies walking by. THEN IT TURNS INTO LIVING FIRE AND ENDS ON A HEAVENLY SOAR. It's so beautiful

    Jedi Clone Mark

    David CM Yes it is !

  74. GnR1090

    I really love this song, the melody at the start of the song and then the explosive part at 2:43

  75. FaZe Cod_lover

    2:42 MY FAVOURITE PART!!!

  76. Pam Nichols

    Beautiful

  77. MafFwog

    This album has been out for 1 month already. Time goes by so fucking fast with amazing music

    MafFwog

    2 months now. Still as awesome.

    Call Of Caymen

    1 year now still awesome

    Ruben Reyes

    Year 2776. It's still awesome!

  78. The J.C.

    This feels like it could've been on The Colour and Shape album...

  79. Mikey Heywood

    Pink Floyd - Eclipse

  80. Papa llahma

    anyone else hear a little bit of stone temple pilots

    sonic jet

    STRANGELY ENOUGH
    THE STONE TEMPLE PILOTS HAD AN ALBUM CALLED SHANGRAI LA DEE DA
    IN 2001 AND NOW THE FOO FIGHTERS HAVE A SONG CALLED LA DEE DA IN 2017 :) ISNT THAT INTERESTING??

    JaguarFacedMan

    I can hear a little bit of STP at the end.

  81. Bryce Treese

    You can really hear Dave's fascination with The Bird and the Bee in this song....

  82. imadman72

    I really dig this tune!!! Its, clean,its dirty, its huge, its just got a thick sound to it. Very well produced I see why he chose Greg Kurstin.

  83. Jake Moitoso

    Is dirty water heroine?

  84. Mike Zuehlke

    What a gem of a song...multilayered...good vibe beat....heavy strong finale. This the best track on an outstanding creative tour de force od an album. CONGRATS FOO this one is hard to argue with.

  85. Silver Tounge

    This album was just to stable and shiny

  86. Ronald Willey

    For some reason this song really makes me think of Queens of the Stone Age.

  87. extratroppo437

    This one struck me particularly strong as being Beatles-esque. Reminds me of George Harrison's 'Isn't It A Pity'---same key too!

    Zuzana Jedličková

    Indeed, it is very similar overall. I would say almost too much...

  88. Christopher Williams

    The song kind of sounds like 70's music

  89. Yusuf Khan

    Best song of the album!

  90. Sierra Bartlett

    Sounds like their first album. I love it.

  91. NOONTIDE

    Foo Fighters has always experimented with different sounds and playstyles, even song progression. To say that they need to make music like they used to is to ask for a band that isnt foo fighters.



    This song is incredible

  92. Patrick Davis

    Love that Dirty Water!

  93. Johnny Kimura

    holy shit man this is great! it has a feel of the bird and the bee but keeping foo fighters groove...totally unexplainable and amazing

  94. Jennifer Drysdale

    I'm obsessed with this song!

  95. miguel garduno

    does anyone else think it kind of sounds like ghosts without the vocals though

  96. Draven Alexander

    Listen to this song and then listen to Polkadot Cadaver-Chloroform Girl. You'll thank me later.

  97. Pat B

    This song peeks my interest in everything I love about music. SOLID instrumental. Great transitions. FANTASTIC build up. "Story telling" type of lyrics. Group singing. Straight up AROUSES me. I can't EMPHASIZE enough how GREAT this SONG IS.

    Pam Nichols

    P
    Foo-rection!!!!!!

    Kyle Fox

    I'm SORRY I Can't CONTROL the VOLUME OF my VOICE

  98. ottoniel tena

    02:43 💜

  99. Cameron Potter

    Love the 2 halves of this song and the build towards the outro. The subtle harshness Dave introduces as the song progresses is just breath taking
