Lyrics

Verse:
Maybe you came to kill today
Maybe you came to get away
The heat 'round here no damn good
I can see you're feeling so unsure
From the sack I'll feed the stream
If you're scared you can just watch me
I'll save one if you think I should
The sleeping one that's real good

Chorus:
Hey little kitty I bet you've never seen
A savior quite like me
You're brothers and sisters are beneath the stream
I bet you've never seen
A savior like me
Oooh no no no
Oooh no no no

Verse:
It's so easy to remember
How I made these waters turn
An old man with his hand to god
Dropped me down for a higher cause
Change it ain't a coming
Good things I do begrudging
Gone, gone dead beneath my wake
But I'll save this one today

Chorus

Chorus

Outro:
From the sack to the stream (8X)
God help a savior like me
