Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Like a lamb to its slaughter
Buried in water
Verse 2
Down
Under the ground
There's a town there
I've been down there
In the middle of the lake
I hold your hand, for goodness' sake
Verse 3
When the women and the kids are asleep
The walls there
And the skin of the sheep
So lock all the windows and doors
The Devil's coming for you and yours
Verse 4
Love was all that it could give
But it died so other towns could live
They don't bury bodies from the drowned
But they drowned our little town
Verse 5
Like a lamb to his slaughter
Buried in water
Buried in water
Verse 6
Buried in water
Verse 7
When the leaves
Go floating away
In the pale moonlight of day
Iury anchors in our ghosts
And we can let our heartbeats go
Verse 8
Love was all that it could give
But it died so other towns could live
They don't bury bodies from the drowned
But they drowned our little town
Verse 9
Love was all that it could give
But it died so other towns could live
They don't bury bodies from the drowned
But they drowned our little town
Verse 10
We're like the lambs to its slaughter
Buried in water
Buried in water
Buried in water
