(((Carla and Brandon sing 'Wade in the Water')))
prophets/profits rise, and profits/prophets fall
heroes die, sometimes lose it all
but the ones who survive, despite the loss
might learn how to fly, when the nightmare's gone
but how long, till the revolution comes?
and how strong can we really be, without guns?
and i might be wrong, when i say that its not all love
but even when hope is gone, we still gotta get up
rise with the tides when the ocean cries
as the water level threatens us to compromise or die
are we gonna stay alive?
or just sit around and wait for the lake to run dry
not in my time
i'm not the desert kind
sorry tank girl
but your future's not mine
cuz we're taking down the power with some water tonight
so you'd better suit up and get ready for a fight
comin with the drummin under cover of night
with the pigs and undercover motherfuckers in sight
hit em with the light
and don't be nice
just ride on fire, till we break thru the lies
killin all the villains, till i'm feelin somethin safe
resurrect a million prophets from their ashes and graves
rip apart machinery with nothin but the brave
consciousness is limitless just ride up on this wave
don't sit on your ass
and wait to be saved
if you wanna make it last
we gotta fight the depraved
don't believe what they say
you are far from insane
tell em bring all the rain
shove it down the fuckin drain
