It's blood over water it's the ties that bind.
It’s blood over water – it’s the ties that bind It’s a natural order – not a written kind It’s just something everybody knows. It’s a family thing – bout the dos and the don’ts The lines that we cross and the lines that we won’t It’s just something that you feel inside.
Like that pack of dogs on the edge of town You can’t chase them off, you can’t stare ‘em down They stickin’ together and they survive Well I always thought we be like that too You countin’ on me I countin’ on you Oh dear brother yeah was I surprised.
Because you did that thing you did, you said that thing you said and now as long as I am livin’ you’ll remain unforgiven
Like that poet said to forgive is divine Well it don’t work like that, not in this life of mine What you give is what you gonna get For the knock on the door that went ignored There’s a price to be paid that you cannot afford cause it’s something I just can’t forget,
Yeah you did that thing you did, you said that thing you said and now as long as I am livin’ you’ll remain . . . unforgiven, unforgiven, unforgiven
