Made by man to keep him contained, constrained,
Trapped, disgustingly disgusted and disguised
Getting dirtier by the minute.
Still Water won't never come clean
Cause now he's too conditioned to move
And even if the drain opened
and all the dark dirty waters could freely run
Into the strong-moving ever-changing ocean
He wouldn't go
Cause Still Water won't never come clean
Cause Still Water's whole soul is polluted.
Even the beautiful bird that sees him from afar
And wants to experience what she sees as beauty
He only drowns her in mud and self-pity
It's a never-winning game of love.
Every wonder why dirty ducks flock to a dingy pond?
They are all he deserves
They are the mirror of Still Water's heart.
