HEAD ABOVE WATER

 

The day you got pushed in

Was the day you learned to swim

And then the tide kept rising

Inch by inch

You tense up your spine

You test the water line

Your arms are reeling

You’re barely breathing

Rise up, taste some sweetness

 

And keep your head above the water

You keep your head above the water

You keep your head above water

And you don’t let your bridges down

 

Now, the people who drown

They don’t kick and they scream

They just slip into the water

Silently

So much information

So much for one nation

So much for being righteous

Guess I’ll go for mine then

I want to get out of here alive

 

I keep my head above the water

I keep my head above the water

You keep your head above water

And you don’t let your bridges down

No, you don’t let your bridges down

 

Living my life under water

Mama, from sea to shining sea

Tired of feeling forgotten

Maybe just let myself slip down silently

Let my bridges falter

Slip on down, down, down to the bottom of the sea

 

Now, day by day

Oh, that information’s coming

And what started as a rain

Well, now the world is flooded

Better loosen up your spine

Better test the waterline

Your heart is beating

You’d better breathe in

Rise up, rise up

 

And keep your head above the water

You keep your head above the water

You keep your head above water

And you don’t let your bridges down
