Lyrics:

Driving home I see those flooded fields

How can people not know what beauty this is?

I've taken it for granted my whole life

Since the day I was born



Clouds hang on these curves like me

And I kneel to the wheel

Of the fox confessor on splendid heels

And he shames me from my seat

And on my guilty feet I follow him

In retreat



What purpose in these deeds?

Oh fox confessor please...

Who married me to these orphaned blues?

"It's not for you to know, but for you to weep and wonder

When the death of your civilization precedes you."



Will I ever see you again?

Will there be no one above me to put my faith in?

I flooded my sleeves as I drove home again

Lyrics

Why is the world in love again?
Why are we marching hand in hand?
Why are the ocean levels rising up?
It's a brand new record for 1990.
They Might be Giants' brand new album:
Flood

Lyrics

In an ocean of noise
I first heard your voice
Ringing like a bell
As if I had a choice
Oh well!

Left in the morning
While you were fast asleep
Into an ocean of violence
A world of empty streets


You've got your reasons
And me, I've got mine
But all the reasons I gave
Were just lies to buy myself some time


In an ocean of noise
I first heard your voice
Now who here among us
Still believes in choice?
Not I!

No way of knowing
What any man will do
An ocean of violence
Between me and you

I'm going to work it out
Cause time won’t work it out
I'm going to work it out
Cause time won’t work it out for you
I'm going to work it on out

Lyrics:

Make no mistake I don't do anything for free

I keep my enemies closer than my mirror ever gets to me

And if you think that there is shelter in this attitude

Wait till you feel the warmth of my gratitude



One

I get the feeling that it's two against one

I'm already fighting me, so what's another one?

The mirror is a trigger and your mouth's a gun

Lucky for me I'm not the only one



And if it looks to me like you and your reflection

Plan to add your own fight to this dimension

Then tell it that this ain't no free-for-all to see

There's only three

It's just you and me against me



One

I get the feeling that it's two against one

I'm already fighting me so what's another one?

The mirror is a trigger and your mouth's a gun

Lucky for me I'm not the only one

Lucky for me I'm not the only one



And if your foot soldiers, sycophants, and yes men

Plan to break into the middle of this little plan

Then they should plan to hear me say

That I won't play around the way

Anyway, I plan to plan around them



One

I get the feeling that it's two against one

I'm already fighting me so what's another one?

The mirror is a trigger and your mouth's a gun

Lucky for me I'm not the only one

Lucky for me I'm not the only one
