Inside ‘Water’

‘Water’ was first released on our London Underground album in 2009 and was a fairly fast punchy song. We decided to change it completely so rather than just slowing the riff down and/or replacing electric guitars with acoustic we rearranged it for piano and added a Spanish guitar solo. The lyrics are about redemption so they suit the Gothic – Punk – Blues twist we’ve given the song.

Shadows around the ceiling light Like the shroud around my life I can’t believe the years I gave The time I spent that can’t be saved

My sins were great, my blessings few Cursed by fate in all I do Stripped away to what remains Wipe the slate, be clean again

Water, I need water I need water to wash away what it did to me

Future zero, faded dreams, Never wanting to be seen Running scared and lying low A reject with no place to go

I did not mean to cause offence It was my inexperience And now I know the difference I can’t take back my innocence

Got signed up, sold down the river Second class, just a beginner That old black dog is coming for dinner Send the rain, baptise the sinners Baptise the sinners
