Lyrics

The Thirst

God he drowned the world to rid it of a curse
Left Noah standing high and dry but with a powerful thirst
And it came with certain knowledge that we were born to burn
and a sense that we should work for something we could never earn

And its a curse, its a flame, its a thirst that's like a razor on a vein
And it's a burn, it's a cry, it's a drive to dry and drink the world dry
It's a thirst, it’s a curse

David spied the fruit as she was bathing on the roof
And it filled him with a fire that burned, till he laid low the truth
And all the river Jordan well it couldn't kill the flame
And the thirst it was a curse that made a dagger of his name

And it's a curse, it's a flame, and it's a thirst that's like a razor on a vein
And it's a burn, it's a cry, and it's a drive to try and drink the world dry
It’s a curse, it’s a thirst

Judas grabbed the fire in pieces, one by one
But the rope it burnt his neck because his lips had burnt the son
The ground it drank his blood, you know the thirst it cursed his name
And though he tried, the tears he cried couldn’t put out the flame

And it's a curse, it's a flame, and it's a thirst that's like a razor on a vein
And it's a burn, it's a cry, and it's a drive to try and drink the world dry
It’s a thirst, it’s a curse
