Come a Flood

by Death Comesto Matteson

lyrics

There's a burning house
And she set the fire
sirens are screaming out
as flames kiss the sky

The water is rising
It's up to my knees
You tell me, "kneel down,
and pray for relief."

The engine comes
they bust down the door
find her daddy drunk
passed out on the floor

The water is rising
It's up to my knees
You tell me, "kneel down,
and pray for relief."

The neighbor's gawked
all wringing their hands
like moving pictures watched
the sickly romance

They carry Laura down
all cut up and bruised
some fires go out
and some you consume

Just as I am
without one plea
nearer, oh nearer
my God to thee
some choose the fire
and some choose the sea
I'm done with choosing
just save me
