I Am The Drought I Am The Flood

from by Wretches



i waited there for you
at the bottom of the lake
between darkest nights and shortest days

We dwell
at the deepest depths
and feed on the leaves in the bottom of the lakebed.

Bodies litter the streets and clog the streams.

i am the drought, i am the flood
i am the plague duplicating in your blood
i am the gun held to your head
i am loneliness you feel on your deathbed

is god just a guy up in the sky
waiting to decide
if we should burn or if we should fly
thank god for disease and sin
dont blame the devil because god made him
he does exactly what god designed him to do

i am the drought, i am the flood

(lyrics by Alex Baumann)
