Flood

Flood
Lyrics written by Robert M. Duvall

You can’t keep the dirt out six feet in the ground
You won’t stop the rising flood, no matter how tall you stand.

Allow me to introduce the me I used to be,
When you want to welcome yourself to me
Always threatening to turn over a new leaf
But don’t waste the bitter and the sweet.

You can’t keep the dirt out six feet in the ground
You won’t stop the rising flood, no matter how tall you stand.

Well don’t you know you shouldn’t talk to strangers
You may not like all the hidden dangers
That goes along with the conversation
Your tired shit just tries my patience.

You can’t keep the dirt out six feet in the ground
You won’t stop the rising flood, no matter how tall you stand.
The wind won’t stop blowing, no matter the war you bring
The water takes the shape of anything it can.
