  1. The Waters Cold

From the album Worthy

Lyrics

The water's cold

I’m only wise from mistakes.
I’ve been a fool, now I’m playing it cool..
I jump in without looking all the times,
But never into holes where the waters cold.

(Chorus)
The preacher wants to cleanse my sins,
He wants to free my soul but the waters cold.
I see demons as he pulls me in.
Their trying to steal my soul, but the water's cold.

Do you think Jesus would be my friend?
Cause I’ve been a thief, I’ve been a liar.
All the scars from the lashes run so deep.
Like him I’ve been processed, I think I've passed their tests.
(Chorus)
The preacher wants to cleanse my sins,
He wants to free my soul but the waters cold.
I see demons as he pulls me in.
Their trying to steal my soul, but the water's cold.

I fell in once and felt them circling my heart.
There were things moving around down there, in the dark.
But as they slithered in for the kill.
A hand reached in and grabbed my soul.
Where the water's cold…

I'll raise a cross and nail myself to it.
I might need a hand, man this wasn’t planned.
With any luck maybe I will be forgiven.
Maybe no one really minds, Maybe god is blind.

(Chorus)
The preacher wants to cleanse my sins,
He wants to free my soul but the waters cold.
I see demons as he pulls me in.
Their trying to steal my soul, but the water's cold.
