speared and taking their bodies apart like toys
They dismantle themselves by the water's edge
And reach for the speech and the wide, wide world
Ah, God
Holy John lives down by the water
Bathing sinners and he wants your daughter
Telling people that they'd better repent
Telling your daughter it was
There's a ship
And it sails a sea of light
On it's way to me tonight
From a distant shore
Taking me home once more
And the waves
Taking on water,
Sailing a restless sea
From a memory,
A fantasy.
The wind carries
Into white water,
Far from the islands.
Don't you know
ripples round your thin white neck
And draws me a line
Cold fingers mark this dying wreck
This moment is mine

Night fall again
Taking what's left
Taking on water,
Sailing a restless sea
From a memory,
A fantasy.
The wind carries
Into white water,
Far from the islands.
Don't you know
As all the days are done

Night falls again
Taking what's left of me

Slight twist, shivering corpse
Ornated with water, fills the cracks
Clasped in
As all the days are done

Night falls again
Taking what's left of me

Slight twist, shivering corpse
Ornated with water, fills the cracks
Clasped in
As all the days are done

Night falls again
Taking what's left of me

Slight twist, shivering corpse
Ornated with water, fills the cracks
Clasped in
personal
The garbage was whiter than white
The villain mostly dark
The hero was enlightened by light
Dogs began to bark

I was just a hero of the human
This country has been surprised by the way the world looks now.  They don't know if they want to be Matt Dillon or Bob Dylan.  They don't know if they
Taking on water,
Sailing a restless sea
From a memory,
A fantasy.
The wind carries
Into white water,
Far from the islands.
Don't you know
Taking on water,
Sailing a restless sea
From a memory,
A fantasy.
The wind carries
Into white water,
Far from the islands.
Don't you know
Taking on water, sailing a restless sea
From a memory, a fantasy.
The wind carries into white water, 
Far from the islands.
Don't you know you're
Taking on water,
Sailing a restless sea
From a memory,
A fantasy.
The wind carries
Into white water,
Far from the islands.
Don't you know
A white ghost, making his way up the west coast
Trying to focus his high hopes on a vagina or two
He's taking his chances
Meanwhile, back in his
Filling water cups up, with a lot of coke
Egging homes, motherfucker, a lot of yolk
Not alone up in this motherfucker, a lot of folks, been doing…

White
of fear
Distant, you seem unclear
Until the savior nears

Cut through the night my curse and my plight
Blinded by light holy in white
My heart didn’t
As cars go by I cast my mind's eye
Over back packs on roof racks
Beyond the horizon
Where dream makers
Working white plastic processors
Invite
Universal as I stroll down the street
Africas's a bolling over flowing inside of me
I used to sport a curl made by Jerry
A Jerry curl
but as time
if is by day or if it is at night Not if it is tomorrow or if it is an endless today the waves noquean to me without mercy I feel that my balance goes
1990's
You late, homeboy I kept them 19's shiny
Killa, easy

[Chorus]

I came a long way from getting hanged by a white jury
Look at my neck, all

Felt so ashamed! Had to excuse myself by pretending to take the piss
Walked to the mirror, splashed water on my face

Tread these waters face a barricade of barracudas (grr')
Do I have to paraphrase for you lame excuses?
I just aim and shoot it
Cause the game's
torches
Sayin a white girl has been tampered wit by a black man
Swingin ropes around the oaks sayin they found they man
Its that type of story down south
