spirit on the water lyrics – james harvest barclay

there’s a spirit floating
on the water
there’s a shadow lying
down by the sh*r*
wasn’t there a year before?
a sacrifice for the coat
he’s wearing
a “paradise” for the lady

who dares
colour him red upon the snow?

we carry the burden upon our shoulder
we carry their lives in the palm of our hand
don’t you care about the state you’re in
or don’t you understand?

there’s a spirit floating
on the water
see the shadow lying
down by the sh*r*
wasn’t there some years ago?

we carry the burden upon our shoulder
we carry their lives in the palm of our hand
don’t you care about the world your in
or don’t you understand
