Wash it out
Wash it out of me
Bleaching, screeching
Wash it out
Cleanse your blood, said she
Dreaming lucidly


A louder noise
Project or you won't be heard
Allow the computer, allow access
Work until you're sick

Improvise or recite
Don't know which to choose
You've learnt your scriptures, you've learnt your tables
Bottle it on the day

Despite everything
Despite everything

And we're still standing - standing up
And we're still standing - standing apart
And as the water rises, and the tide starts to turn
You shrug your shoulders in disbelief

Despite everything
Despite everything
Despite everything
They'll reach for you

Despite everything
Despite everything

We teach to you
