Genre: Rock Folk, World, & Country
Style: Folk Rock/Folk/Indie Rock
length: 3:52
Star light, blistering white, black water
A thousand motorbikes, black water
And housewives still on the run
From black water and
Killer spelling bees, black water

The boys are breaking guitars
In black water
And eating little girl hearts in
Black water

Kind of lovable but kind of
Carelessly cruel
Sort of unstoppable
But officially going nowhere
The colored lights leave you hypnotized
But you’re frozen in the spotlight’s glare
So never be the pretentious one
And never be the one who achieves

Just rock it straight from the crypt
Into black water
That’s all it takes to be hip
In black water
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon
Wash away your mistakes
In black water
