lyrics

I like it when a song goes down
I like the small noise it makes
It’s like catching up with old friends
On the bottom of the lake

And when a song goes down and loses it’s song
I’ve learnt not to be slow to sing and go down
And fall in with friends who hide drains in their voices
And thirst for the things that are gone

I like it when a song goes down
I like the small noise it makes
It’s like catching up with old friends
On the bottom of the lake

And so drown out your voices and cast down your song
And set a place at the table for the hole in your plate
‘Cause great is the heart, the heart that sinks
When the webbed hand of the lord drags the lake
