The Flood Lyrics

Broken people get recycled

And I hope that I will sometimes be thrown off the pathways


What I thought was my way home

Wasn't the place I know

No, I'm not afraid of changing,

Certain, nothing's certain

What we own becomes our prison

My possessions will be gone

Back to where they came from



Blame

No one is to blame

As natural as the rain that falls

Here comes the Flood again



See the rock that you hold onto

Is it gonna save you

When the earth begins to crumble?

Why'd you feel you have to hold on?


Imagine if you let go




Blame

No one is to blame

As natural as the rain that falls

Here comes the Flood again




Flush away the weight that pulls you down

Light the ways that freed from the dust



(Flush away the weight that pulls you down)

Don't trust your eyes

It's easy to believe them

Know in your heart

That you can leave a prison




(Light the ways that free from the dusk)

Don't trust your mind

Its not always listening

Turn on the lights

And feel the ancient rhythm



Don't trust your eyes

It's easy to believe them (no one is to blame)

Know in your heart (as natural as the rain)

That you can leave your prison (here comes the Flood again)



Blame

No one is to blame

As natural as the rain that falls

Here comes the Flood again




When read in the context of 2012 they are very meaningful...what do you think she is singing about? Re cycling people, prison planet, what is her home is not what she thought, dont trust your eyes trust your heart, is the Earth going to save you as she crumbles??? Dont trust your mind, shes not afraid of changing , you have to admit these lyrics have hidden meaning.

So are you saying that this singer is trying capitalize off of the 2012 baloney?

I completely agree - Katie Melua is a conspiracy to keep us all anaesthetized with her thoroughly mundane and drab songs.

I doubt if the poor thing's got the talent to actually conceptualise a conspiracy though.

Well I guess she will make money out of it yes, but thats not what Im interested in, maybe who ever wrote this song doesnt mind, they just want to get the message out, or yes maybe they too want to capitalize in on it too. However you look at it, these are not your standard lyrics.

Don't trust your eyes

It's easy to believe them

Know in your heart

That you can leave your prison

I believe we live in a matrix prison so maybe thats why the lyrics caught my eye. I believe we are constantly sent back here life time after life time. I dont trust my eyes because what they show me is how the matrix wants me to perceive my surroundings. It doesnt bother me that someone is making money out of this song, if it helps just a few open their minds then thats all that matters.

Big confession here. I never listen to the lyrics. They are written for entertainment and cash. I have no idea if these are standard lyrics.

Don't trust your eyes
AXXIS

It's easy to believe them

Know in your heart
Night Ranger
Five Iron Frenzy

That you can leave your prison

Well a quick scan showed 2 out of 4 are in other songs.

I thought this song would end up on ATS.Pesonally,I think it is a fantastic song,it makes a change from the mundane 'I'm in love or trying to find love' songs.

I like the lyrics "I'm certain nothings certain"simple but to the point.Two more songs I have listened to on the new album,The House are, Red balloons and I'd love to kill you.Both of which have great lyrics.

She aint bad looking either.

I guess there will be a high chance of that...but they arnt put together in this way are they? Single lines can be found in other songs of course but they will not be in this same context of floods, prisons, re cycled people, mind control and Earth crumbling. Why would she be singing about such non popular concepts ? You say to make money but outside of ATS/similar forums 2012 isnt taken that well known, everyone I know thought the film was just a joke so for artists to make money out of deliberately writing lyrics around it to make money seem off, but of course it is possible. Its far more popular to make songs about love though dont you think .

What do you think she's singing about?

She's singing about the prison you put yourself into, not a prison planet. She's saying be fluid, like water, and follow the path of least resistance.. Water has never once flowed uphill, but it's one of the most destructive forces on the planet!

Tool - Aenema

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this

Bull# three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless #ing hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any #ing time. Any #ing day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car.

It's a
Bull# three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks

Here in this hopeless #ing hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any #ing time. Any #ing day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dip#s.

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will cuz
I sure could use a vacation from this

Silly #, stupid #...

One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

Learn to swim.

Mom's gonna fix it all soon.
Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to be.

Learn to swim.

# L Ron Hubbard and
# all his clones.
# all those gun-toting
Hip gangster wannabes.

Learn to swim.

# retro anything.
# your tattoos.
# all you junkies and
# your short memory.

Learn to swim.

# smiley glad-hands
With hidden agendas.
# these dysfunctional,
Insecure actresses.

Learn to swim.

Cuz I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.
Mom please flush it all away.
I wanna watch it go right in

You make a good point
What of the Earth beginning to crumble?

See the rock that you hold onto

Is it gonna save you

When the earth begins to crumble?

Why'd you feel you have to hold on?

That is explained well in yet another Tool song
her's reminded me of a sort of.. less poetic, simpler version of maynard's masterpiece!

Tool - Flood

Here comes the water.

All I knew and all I believed
are crumbling images

that no longer comfort me.
I scramble to reach higher ground,
some order and sanity,
or something to comfort me.

So I take what is mine,and hold what is mine,

suffocate what is mine, and bury what's mine.
Soon the water will come
and claim what is mine.
I must leave it behind,
and climb to a new place now.

This ground is not the rock I thought it to be.

Thought I was high, and free.
I thought I was there
divine destiny.

I was wrong.
This changes everything.

The water is rising up on me.
Thought the sun would come deliver me,
but the truth has come to punish me instead.

The ground is breaking down right under me.
Cleanse and purge me
in the water.

Basically, your beliefs, the things you think you hold dear and love, are attachments. Change is the only constant in this Universe. Those things are the ground you are on, and when the Flood comes to take them will you cling to them, or reach for higher ground? Will you be taken down with them, or will you rise up to a new height?

The metaphors are #ing awesome in this song


Edit: Tool wrote Flood in 1992.

Very well put.


Those lyrics are far superior to Melulas, far superior but I can see why they reminded you of this song.

Thanks for posting them.

I think you're dead on with this, Katie may be worrying
about the 2012 ending... for me it's:

Like I said before I don't pay attention to lyrics.

Big confession here. I never listen to the lyrics.


I think that this cashes in on the 2012 stuff. The movie is free advertising for this sentiment. It's interesting that you say few people know about 2012. I agree. There are other forums here at ATS where people claim that this is all people talk about now.

I bet you are right that there are more love songs. One of my favorites to which I actually listed to the lyrics is the Masochism Tango by Tom Lehrer.

Again.. The song never really references anything specific, especially 2012 or any sort of flood.

C'mon people, symbolism! Read BETWEEN the lines.

It's a song about her seeing the impermanence in the things she holds dear, that nothing is certain, and to embrace change. Flow with the changes in your life, don't resist them.
