  • I've been drinking dirty water
    But I've been here before, after all
    The witching hour is upon us
    So you and I can sing haunted songs

    In my dreams I'm climbing ladders
    And then I tumble down, rung by rung
    And I keep on falling faster
    The heart is echoing, on and on
    On and on

    I feel an earthquake coming on
    I feel the metal in my bones
    I'm a natural disaster
    You're the morning after all my storms

    You're my sea of poison flowers
    Standing in the sun, row by row
    I've been drinking dirty water
    The taste of sweet revenge, best served cold
    All we know

    I feel an earthquake coming on
    I feel the metal in my bones
    I'm a natural disaster
    And you're the morning after all my storms

    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky
    Bleed dirty water, breathe dirty sky

    I feel an earthquake coming on
    I feel the metal in my bones
    'Cause I'm a natural disaster
    Dirty water in my blood

    I feel a moment coming on
    Heavy metal in my bones
    'Cause I'm a natural disaster
    You're the morning after all my storms Writer/s: Chris Shiflett, Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Taylor Hawkins
