– muddy waters –

Rinse

off, rinse off, feels

like I’ve been baptized. Jump

off, jump off, this

vessel has capsized.

Down by the ba-

you, child… spirits wash

over me.

For-

got, forgot my

mission to swim, di-

straught, distraught, o-

ver my weak limbs,

but no limbs are need-

ed, child… in or-

der to see…

 

‘Cause it’s a

wild time…

in these muddy wa-

ters,

and I

know it’s rough…

once the breathing gets hard-

er.

Clari-

ty’s neither complex

nor profound when you

trust in your strokes that

you won’t drown, and you’ll

make it out…

out these muddy wa-

ters.
