Walk on the Flood
by Widespread Panic



They kill it in the comedy clubs
They're killing in the schools
Make a killing on Wall St.
Adjust the golden rule
Do unto others
It's surely what they'd do
Remember the memories
We were all once children too

Ashes ashes
All in the name of who

We say howdy neighbor
I love you Mom and Dad
But if you're a stranger
You must want something we have
I know you don't like me
Am I really that bad
Remember the schoolyard
There were no strangers in the sand

Fascist fascist
Let's see a show of hands

If we're all going to fly
We'll need a safe place to land

This is the picture I painted this morning
There are the colors memories forming
These are the pictures we painted together

We elected our leaders
So we've been told
Got no right to complain
We've bought what they sold

The slogan of the day is
Put peace on hold
Lennon would have us laughing
If we'd just let him grow old

Pacifist pacifist
Ain't we a sight to behold

Some people feel so much
We're making new drugs
Mister Rogers and Oprah
Other channels have blood
Trying and dying
Water and mud
Forgiving for the love
Take a walk on the flood

Forgiving for the love
And walk on the flood

This is the picture I painted this morning
These are the colors this was my warning
These are the pictures we painted together

This is the picture I painted this morning
These are the colors, memories are forming
These are the pictures we painted together
