Katie Melua - The Flood Lyrics




Broken people get recycled
And I hope that I will.
Sometimes we're thrown off our pathways
What I thought was my way home
Wasn't the place I know
I'm not afraid of changing
I'm certain nothing's certain
What we own becomes our prison
My possessions will be gone
Back to where they came from

Blame, no one is to blame
As natural as the rain that falls
Here comes the Flood again

See the rock that you hold onto
Is it gonna save you
When the earth begins to crumble
Why d'you feel you have to hold on?
Imagine if you let go

Blame, no one is to blame
As natural as the rain that falls
Here comes the Flood again

Wash away the weight that pulls you down
Ride the waves that free you from the dusk

Don't trust your eyes
It's easy to believe them
Know in your heart
That you can leave your prison
(Wash away the weight that pulls you down)

Don't trust your mind
It's not always listening
Turn on the lights
And feel the ancient rhythm
(Ride the waves that free you from the dusk)

Don't trust your eyes
It's easy to believe them
Know in your heart
That you can leave your prison
(Blame, no one is to blame
As natural as the rain that falls
Here comes the Flood again)

Blame, no one is to blame
As natural as the rain that falls
Here comes the Flood again

  17. ascallapha

    I listened to the portal parody that everyone is talking about in the comments as a little kid and for weeks I’ve had this song’s melody (from the “imagine if you let go” part especially) and I wasn’t able to place it until I suddenly remembered! A beautiful song and very haunting

  18. lanceortega1

    Brilliant clip, beautiful Katie, beautiful song, perfect vocal.

  19. Doctor infinite

    2019 and GLaDOss Is Still To Blame

  20. Fallen Angel

    The house, best album from Katie. I like this song. A fan from Belgium

  21. Dynamic Gorgon 39

    I feel like, as a man, this is what I look like when I sweep the house.

  22. Kyle Stubbs

    For a song called "The Flood", there’s a notable lack of water.

    rockets push off air

    It seems like a reminder or a warning of the flood of Genesis in the Bible, but not necessarily that it's going to happen again, judging by the rest of the lyrics. Oh ya, and the piano as if it was tossed on the waves. Anyways, shit is gonna hit the fan sooner or later.

    Robbie Millar

    So you're kinda saying .... https://youtu.be/IIzemxXzIQc ... Maybe cause the water budget was all taken up here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CuKcUU2xx4 ;)

    pafnucek

    What about the sweat of those half-naked men?

    Irishcloth

    Thats why God created the rainbow. It was a sign of love and peace thatd hed never do it again. :)

    pafnucek

    @IrishclothYea, but what God would say about dancing, half naked, sweaty men?

  23. GLaDOS_ACOUNT 1

  64. Imogen Carney

    This is the perfect soundtrack to an awesome manga called "blame" set in a far far distant future in a world of robots and vast endless infrastructure that is rumoured to reach the moon. The main character has a hugely op gun that blokes gigantic holes in whatever its fired at, it nearly breaks the characters arm lmao

  65. Jimbo Mckenna

    This is great

  66. chileepengwin

    This is one of the best songs I have ever heard. I absolutely love it!

  74. perlyax

    This is very very very very harmonic minor jajajajaja

  75. crowcalls

    admit it, we're all here after being told that GLaDOS is to blame.

  76. Cole Knowles

    "Ok guys, I have a bet that she can't do this in the first five takes, so rock that boat in the most nausiating way ever, but still to the rhythm. If I go home alone tonight, you lot are out of a job, got it?" - the music video director, 0:56

    Cole Knowles

    seriously, how does she play that while its rocking like that?! xD

  77. LtRipley

    Such sexy turrets

  78. Wholemanatee

    Who came from GLaDOS is to blame?

  79. TittyTitty GearLust

    lots of fit men in black underpants? bring it ON!!!

  80. Ranim Zarour

    Broken people get recycled 
    And I hope that I will. 
    Sometimes we're thrown off our pathways 
    What I thought was my way home 
    Wasn't the place I know 
    I'm certain nothing's certain 
    What we own becomes our prison 
    My possessions will be gone 
    Back to where they came from

    Blame, no one is to blame 
    As natural as the rain that falls 
    Here comes the Flood again

    See the rock that you hold onto 
    Is it gonna save you 
    When the earth begins to crumble? 
    Why do you feel you have to hold on? 
    Imagine if you let go

    Blame, no one is to blame 
    As natural as the rain that falls 
    Here comes the Flood again

    Wash away the weight that pulls you down 
    Ride the waves that free you from the dusk?

    Don't trust your eyes 
    It's easy to believe them 
    Know in your heart 
    That you can leave your prison

    Don't trust your mind 
    It's not always listening 
    Turn on the lights 
    And feel the ancient rhythm

    Don't trust your eyes 
    It's easy to believe them 
    Know in your heart 
    That you can leave your prison

    Blame, no one is to blame 
    As natural as the rain that falls 
    Here comes the Flood again

    Walking With The Lads

    Broken turrets get recycled, at least I hope I will.

    Sometimes we’re thrown off the pathways, they thought that was their way home, they were wrong I know.

    I’m not afraid of dying, I will be rebuilt.

    But Android Hell may be my prison, and my weapons may be gone, back to where they came from.

    Blame! GLaDOS is to blame! As deadly as the toxic pools, here comes the gas again.

    See that gun that you hold on to, is it going to save you when she sends the neurotoxin, how long can you hold your breath.

    Imagine if you let go.

    Blame! GLaDOS is to blame! As deadly as the toxic pools here comes the gas again.

    Run away.

    The gas will melt your brain.

    Head towards the light.

    Your freedom lies above.

    Don’t trust you eyes, it’s easy to believe them.

    Believe in your heart, that you can escape this prison

    Don’t speak your mind, she is all ways listening.

    Defend your life, and make it your only mission.

    Blame! GLaDOS is to blame! As deadly as the pools, here comes the gas again.

    Blame!

    GLaDOS is to blame!

    As deadly as the toxic pools, here comes the gas again.

  81. U.S Patriot
