This a religion
No, this a drag
That man over there is smoking sweet cigarettes
Hey look at that *** !

I had a dream
I saw you swim
Sink to your grave
Down to Davy Jone's locker
Under the waves
Don't say " Thank God for simple truths"

Take me to your leader
Take me for a ride
The shutters were never open
The day I used to hide
All of the things
I never knew
I should have said
When you looked like Frida Kahlo
Curled up in bed
Don't say " Thank God for simple truths "
Don't drink the water, baby
Don't drink the water, baby

So much emotion, these eyes a strange kind of blue
Deep as the ocean, they named a sea after you
Don't say " Thank God for simple truths "

Don't drink the water, baby [Repeat: x4]
