Street To Nowhere - Underneath The Flood lyrics

I knew love in dripping coffee
Flooded streets and rust and rotting
I knew love in drunken talking
Before the weather changed

Long before the fevered dreams
The pale faced machinery
For the rain came like artillery
Pulled me underneath the flood

And underneath the flood it's quiet
All my thoughts are softly dyin'
All the rain, the rain is silent
Underneath the flood

Well I was bred in anxious [trips]?
All soft of hand and soft of fist
Through sanity so tedious
I'm searching in the blood
My hatred needs no victim
Oh my hatred like religion
Crucify me while I'm kick
Pull me underneath the flood

And underneath the flood it's quiet
All my thoughts are softly dyin'
All the rain, the rain is risin'
Underneath the flood

And underneath the flood I'm drowning
I have no friends to gather to 'round me
Oh my god my fear has found me
Underneath the flood

And underneath the flood
My tears all turn into the water
Crumpled dollars, rusted copper
I sink underneath
I sink underneath

I sit here entrenched in silence
Coffee keeping up my eyelids
Thoughts of you all turn to violence
Tryin' to find love

But I hate how you believed in me
You believed with such cold objectivity
So tired, I reliquished everything
Fell underneath the flood

And underneath the flood it's quiet
All my thoughts are softly dyin'
All the rain, the rain is silent
Underneath the flood
