lyrics

Finding my feet as it closes in
Rising up to my knees, diving in
Bring me back softly
I won’t give in
Time moves slowly
Sink or swim

And a storm is breaking in my mind
Rivers running from my eyes
And I hate to drag you down, down, down
But I know you’ll bring my back, bring me back this time

Growing into the ground, bodies turn to clay
Heat of my heart as it flows away
Bring me back softly I won’t give in
Time moves slowly sink or swim

And a storm is breaking in my mind
Rivers running from my eyes
And I hate to drag you down, down, down
But I know you’ll bring my back, bring me back this time
And a storm is breaking in my mind
Rivers running from my eyes
And I hate to drag you down, down, down
But I know you’ll bring my back, bring me back
To the ground, spin me round this time

Would you sink or swim?
Would you sink or swim?
Would you sink or swim?
Would you sink or swim?

And a storm is breaking in my mind
Rivers running from my eyes
And I hate to drag you down, down, down
But I know you’ll bring my back, bring me back this time
And a storm is breaking in my mind
Rivers running from my eyes
And I hate to drag you down, down, down
But I know you’ll bring my back, bring me back
To the ground, spin me round this time

Losing my feet as it closes in
Rising up to my knees, diving in
Bring me back softly
I can’t give in
Time moves slowly
Sink or swim

Holy Moly & The Crackers UK

Further adorning Holy Moly & the Crackers' naturally expressive take on British folk with sizeable dollops of rock'n'soul, sharp indie-rock, vulnerable balladeering and festival-ready psychedelic trips towards the Middle East, 'Take A Bite' sets its stall confidently in the previously unoccupied space between the Gossip, Arctic Monkeys, the B52s and Gogol Bordello. ... more
