Ugly Bags of Water

Take the snow, melt it down
Move the water, to the town
Put the water, water, water, on the lawn
Sun comes out, water’s gone
Water’s gone
Water’s gone, land is cracked
Maybe next year, it might come back
Might come back
Might come back

You and I are more alike than either will admit
Ugly bags of water, resource hypocrites
You and I are more alike than either will admit
Ugly bags of water

Rain coming down, lullaby
Rock my baby, she won’t cry
Earth will drink, drink, drink, what sky will give
But water flows, where earth can’t live
Earth can’t live
Earth can’t live, where land is black
Pure water goes, but can’t come back
Can’t come back
Can’t come back

Chorus

Little pool, little child
Little fish, looks in little eyes
Were you once me, will I be you
We both need wet, we both need blue
Both need blue
Both need blue

You and I are more alike than many will admit
