 And I know he would never mean harm,

 Another he drinks up his wine
 And they'll drink till their eyes are red with hate
 For those of a different kind
 When the rivers run quicker than trouble
 I'll be there at your side in the flood
 It was all I could do to keep myself
 From taking revenge on your blood
 (2x Chorus)
