  • Let the water come
    She's the only one I love
    Let the fat man drop
    She's the sweetest honey pot

    Will they see the sky again?
    Who will sing their blues for them?

    Let the factories rust
    She's the only thing I trust
    Let the virus spread
    She's the silk lining in my bed

    Will they breathe our air again?
    Who will sing their blues for them?

    When you're feeling moot
    You can have your conscience all you want
    You can't say I do nothing yeah
    I put it off

    Where you gonna go if they come for you?
    Will there be someone left to sing your blues?
    Where you gonna run when they come for you?
    Will there be someone to sing your blues?
