seen the bloodlines in his eyes
touched the callous of his hands
and he burns with a fire belly deep
that few understand.
hes a hot live wire coming loose from the pole
hes the howl in the storm
and goliath that hes wrestling with
sent him down in the hole

hes looking for some cool water
where the river runs deep
looking for some cool water
leave the devil in his heat

hes a fool for the moon
drunk on her charm
laid down with poets, demons and whores
hes the cool blue heat from a zippo light
keeping quiet about his war
looked for buddha in the east
found jesus in the west
prayed from mountains and temples of gold
still he never did find what he was looking for
til he came to the watering hole

hes looking for that cool water

how do you save a drowning man
if you yourself cant swim
well you throw him a line and tie it tight
hope you pull him in

hes looking for that cool water
