Don't Drink the Water - Dave Matthews Band Lyrics

Come out come out
No use in hiding
Come now come now
Can you not see?
There's no place here
What were you expecting
No room for both
Just room for me
So you will lay your arms down
Yes I will call this home

Away away
You have been banished
Your land is gone
And given me
And here I will spread my wings
Yes I will call this home
What's this you say
You feel a right to remain
Then stay and I will bury you
What's that you say
Your father's spirit still lives in this place
I will silence you

Here's the hitch
Your horse is leaving
Don't miss your boat
It's leaving now
And as you go I will spread my wings
Yes I will call this home
I have no time to justify to you
Fool you're blind, move aside for me
All I can say to you my new neighbor
Is you must move on or I will bury you

Now as I rest my feet by this fire
Those hands once warmed here
I have retired them
I can breathe my own air
I can sleep more soundly
Upon these poor souls
I'll build heaven and call it home
'Cause you're all dead now

I live with my justice
I live with my greedy need
I live with no mercy
I live with my frenzied feeding
I live with my hatred
I live with my jealousy
I live with the notion
That I don't need anyone but me

Don't drink the water
There's blood in the water

    They are so awesome. I'm glad they got together at Miller's. You guys are awesome keep coming out with songs. Even though you aren't touring this year, I will still listen to your music.

    this is an awesome music vid. and the song is great both studio and live. I saw it at the charlotte show last week and it is so cool how they play images of native americans on the screen . I think there is a nirvana video where someone is swinging on a chandalier and i think thats where dave got the idea.
  • Dave and Alanis together is GENIUS!

    This song and video are important and at the same time are really great to listen to. The video has some great images (like the band member hanging upside down in the mist, Dave's head in the hands of the native, etc.) and the song is just genius. Using Alanis on backing vocals was such a FANTASTIC move. Don't drink the water, there's blood in the water, but do by this video!

    Dave puts so much emotion into his songs - not only playing them, but also the lyrics. Once you watch it, you'll LOVE it.
  • Ecclectic and great video

    I really enjoy this song and video because of the tribal and ethereal feeling to it. The background beats are great. It even gets some help from Alanis near the end with her signature wailing. All together an interesting ride.
