The Nocturnes: Not Ready to Make Nice

"One year after Katrina (New Orleans November 2006) / Turning around" by Manu Schnetzler


"Well, you might not want to draw conclusions;
I'll leave that to yourself.
Maybe you're still walking, maybe you're still talking
Maybe you still got your health.
But every time I hear the news
That old feeling comes back on;
We're waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the damn fool keeps yelling to push on.

"Waist deep! Neck deep!
We'll be drowning before too long
Neck deep in the Big Muddy!
And the damn fool keep yelling to push on! "

Waist Deep In The Big Muddy
