Out by the poisonous waters
Up in the faceless skies
Let down, there's a hole in the ground
Riptide, there's a hole in my side
Keep shooting till we got nothing
Keep lurking at the ocean below
Get high, see my baby in the sky
Get low, sing my libido

I said I'd go to nowhere land on Friday night
My life is over and I'm not surprised
Didn't know I'd get carried away by the fire in the sky
Keep grooving and don't stop moving for me

She whispered
Into my ears
Dropped into the ocean
Was greeted by tears
I've got the shakes
My burdens grow
She asked me to write her a song
But into the gallows, I go

I've lost interest in the faith of our kind
I'll let the seagulls free my soul one last time
Chip chap, paddy whack, my end is nigh
Keep grooving and don't stop moving for me

Lie down and wash away my sins

The kingdom doors were never wide
My friends, they leave me for the doors of paradise
But that's okay, I've got the fire in the sky
Keep grooving and don't stop moving for me
