"Don't go there", I heard her say
"You can't stomach what you're going to see"
It's down there, by the water's edge
Wasted and bloated and waiting for someone else

Funny how, these things come about
When you're tied to the teeth and mouth
No sound or fury, no shot of pain
There was no real reason, no gain

I can't go down to the waters edge
I didn't do it... I saw who did
Don't go down to the waters edge
They did it once and they can do it again

It ain't no secret to me
How she got there down by the stream
Cause I'd seen her a minute before
The van pulled up and opened the door (took all my love)

I can't say a single word
About what I saw of her
Cause her killers... they got their friends
In familiar places, I tell you man

I can't go down to the waters edge
I didn't do it... I saw who did
Don't go down to the waters edge
They did it once and they can do it again

This ain't no fucking game
And I'm feeling so ashamed
Because I didn't do anything
No I didn't do anything
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
This from Happening
I didn't do anything

Don't go down to the waters edge you said to me
I didn't do it... But I saw who did you see
Don't go down to the waters edge
They did it once and they can do it again

I swear
I swear
I swear
I swear
I didn't do a thing
I should have done
Something

How she got there down by the stream
I'd seen her a minute before the van pulled up and opened
The door (took all my love)
But I can't say a single word
About what I saw of her
Her killers... they got their friends
In familiar places, I tell you man
This ain't no fucking game
And I'm feeling so ashamed
Because I didn't do anything
No I didn't do anything
To stop this from happening I didn't do a thing I swear
