Oh, people look around you
The signs are everywhere
You left it for somebody other than you
To be the one to care

You're lost inside your houses
There's no time to find you now
Oh, your walls are burning and your towers are turning
I'm gonna leave you here and try to get down to the sea somehow

The road is filled with homeless souls
Every woman child and man
Who have no idea where they will go
But they'll help you if they can

Now everyone must have some thought
That's gonna pull them through somehow
Well the fires are raging hotter and hotter
But the sisters of the sun are gonna rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister, will you soothe my fevered brow?
Rock me on the water
I'll get down to the sea somehow

Oh, people look among you
It's there your hope must lie
There's a seabird above you gliding in one place
Like Jesus in the sky

We all must do the best we can
And then hang onto that gospel plow
When my life is over, gonna stand before the father
But the sisters of the sun are gonna rock me on the water now

Rock me on the water
Sister, will you soothe my fevered brow?
Yeah, rock me on the water
Then maybe I'll remember, maybe I'll remember how

Rock me on the water
The wind is with me now
I said, "Rock me on the water"
I'll get down to the sea somehow

Rock me on the water
Rock me now
Rock me on the water
Rock me now
