Lyrics:

Verse 1:
Jumping out of the compartment,
rolling out of the flame,
nobody's there to save you
when you don't know your own name.
Looking for fathers and mothers,
finding prisoners in chains.
The same monsters that kiss you
can bite you just the same.

Chorus 1:
You are not an orphan, but son and daughter.
The world's been washed in water,
and it'll come back again,
and you are surviving past the slaughter.
You're standing in the water,
and it'll rain again.

Verse 2:
They won't save your life
if you don't know what you need.
They'll cut your heart out,
and expect it not to bleed,
but she bandages your wounds up,
and she whispers your name,
and though so much is different,
many songs ring the same.

Chorus 2:
And you've found both mothers and fathers,
The world's been washed in water,
and it'll come back again,
and you won't be a lamb for that slaughter
You're standing in the water,
and it'll rain again.

Bridge:
They won't save your life,
if you don't know what you need.
Don't cut your heart out,
and expect it not to bleed.

Chorus 3:
You are a mother and a father.
The world's been washed in water,
and it'll come back again,
and you will do your best for the sons and daughters,
but their world's been washed in water,
and it'll come back again.
