  • Oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh
    We are kneeling at the river's edge and tempting
    All the steps to follow closer right behind
    Is it only when you feel a part is empty
    That it's gnawing at the corners of your mind

    I will ask you for mercy
    I will come to you blind
    What you'll see is the worst me
    Not the last of my kind

    Ooh
    In the muddy water we're falling
    Ooh
    In the muddy water we're crawling
    Holds me down
    Hold me now
    Sold me out
    In the muddy waters we're falling

    It is not clear why we choose the fire pathway
    Where we end is not the way that we had planned
    All the spirits gather 'round like it's our last day
    To get across you know we'll have to raise the sand

    Ooh, I will ask you for mercy
    I will come to you blind
    What you'll see is the worst me
    I'm not the last of my kind

    Ooh
    In the muddy water we're falling
    Ooh
    In the muddy water we're crawling
    Holds me down
    Hold me now
    Sold me out
    In the muddy waters we're falling

    Ooh
    Don't fail me now
    Put your arms around me and pull me out
    Ooh
    I know I'm found
    With your arms around me, oh save me now

    Ooh
    Oh, oh
    Ooh, in the muddy water we're falling
    Ooh
    In the muddy water we're crawling
    Holds me down
    Hold me now
    Sold me out
    In the muddy water we're falling Writer/s: LAURA PERGOLIZZI, MICHAEL FRANCIS GONZALEZ, PETER JOSHUA RECORD
