Spirit on the Water (Harvest Barclay James)

There's a spirit floating on the water There's a shadow lying down by the shore Wasn't he there a year before? A sacrifice for the coat he's wearing A 'paradise' for the lady Who dares colour him red upon the shore? We carry the burden upon our shoulder We carry their lives in the palm of our hand Don't you care about the state you're in Or don't you understand? See the spirit floating on the water See the shadow lying down by the shore Wasn't he there some years before? We carry the burden upon our shoulder We carry their lives in the palm of our hand Don't you care about the state you're in Or don't you understand?
