Biffy Clyro – Holy Water Lyrics

The sinner’s in the hospital room
The saint is in the bed
We don’t know what went wrong
All we believed in is gone

The city smells of vicious perfume
And all we love is dead
I don’t know where I’m from
All I know is I don’t belong

How long till we drink the holy water?
How long can we survive?
I’m on my knees begging
Please let it flow
This font is dry

I crushed another wish in my hand
I stomped another rose
I don’t know right from wrong
All I need’s new direction

How long till we drink the holy water?
How long can we survive?
I’m on my knees begging
Please let it flow
I know that this font is dry

If we could talk about it
Sing a song about it
Throw our arms around it
We could make a change
Or we could shout about it
Start a fight about it
Spill some blood around it
Make the same mistakes

How long till we drink the holy water?
How long can we survive?
I’m on my knees begging
Please let it flow
This font is dry

I hope that you don’t
Ever get what you want
‘Cause the silence has sung
We’re the intimate ones

They won’t look past
They will only look through
These infinite worlds
Between me and you

I hope that you don’t
Ever get what you want
‘Cause the silence has sung
We’re the intimate ones

They won’t look past
They will only look through
These infinite worlds
Between me and you
