Swimming In The Flood

On show
And if you miss it this time
Well, it all comes round again
But while it's on screen
It's just like having a good dream
And you don't get many of them

You get unlimited editions
Conflict and competition
Swimming in the flood
Unlimited expression
Disappointment and depression
Swimming in the flood

On show
Feels like you could be someone
And it's only a matter of who
So when the crowd yells
And the camera's on you
Well, you know what you must do

Join the unlimited editions
Telling all on television
And swimming in the flood
Unlimited expression
Aberration and obsession
Swimming in the flood

Who built the dam? We built the dam
So these things could be contained
And not used for entertainment

On show
Feels like you're getting somewhere
Now the whole world knows your face
But you're a cheap option
And you're soon forgotten
Once the next one takes your place

There's an unlimited edition
Stripping off their inhibitions
And swimming in the flood
Unlimited expression
Spilling out in all directions
And swimming in the flood
