Blood // Water Lyrics
Lamb to the slaughter
What you gon' do
When there's blood in the water
The price of your greed
Is your son and your daughter
What you gon' do
When there's blood in the water
Look me in my eyes
Tell me everything's...

I'm pretty dure it's about how big companies are destroying earth just for money, since it says lines like "the price of your greed is your son and your daughter", refering to how the figure generations are gonna hace to suffer the consequences of humans nowadays being greedy and poisoning earth for money, which is also another line: "you poisoned me just for another dollar in your pocket". I feel like the "Blood in the water" line refers to the consequences of global warming and climate chance, how it's gonna end up killing all of us if we continue at this rate, therefore it will be our blood in the water."lamb to the slaughter" might be comparing a lamb to earth, and how it's being constantly harmed and slaughtered, and might also make a reference to the constant killing and slaughter of animals(idk tho). Of course there's many other obvious lines like "when the last tee has fallen" and "the river has run dry" but I don't think those need explenation

Many of the lyrics seem to refer to the plagues of Egypt:
- "We'll never get free": the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt and had no hope of getting free against the powerful nation until God brings Moses and the plagues to free them.
- "Lamb to the slaughter": for the last plague, the Israelites had to slaughter and lamb and put the blood on the doorpost in order to avoid their children dying to the angel of death.
- "blood in the water": one of the plagues turns the Nile river to blood.
- "The price of your greed is your sons and your daughters": the final plague costs the Egyptians their first-born sons who die to the angel of death because of their greed in not allowing the Israelites to go free and wanting free labour.
- "there's a knock on your door": this also refers to the angel of death coming to the homes of those who have not put blood on the doorpost and "knocking" before killing the first-born son.
- "I am the storm
I am the riot
I am the swarm"
Two more plagues were a hailstorm and a swarm of locusts. The riot could refer to the fact that the Israelites are beginning to want freedom and fight for it.
- "Now I am the violence
I am the sickness
Won't accept your silence
Beg me for forgiveness"
God gives the Egyptian king a chance to set His people free, but the king rejects it. Because of this, God justly becomes the "sickness," not satisfied with the King's silence in not allowing the Israelites freedom. He asks the king to beg forgiveness and follow his word in order to free himself of the plagues.

I don't know if it was intentional, but I saw a lot of parallels to the Bible story of the ten plagues. That was my first thought when I heard the song.

I have read a lot of interpretations and I think I finally fully or mostly understand. if u haven’t seen the music video watch it it adds a lot of context. So here’s what I think: it’s about big corporations and government who prioritize money and wealth over the state of the world and they continue to poison our world (global warming and stuff like that) just for money. The line “you poisoned me just for another dollar in your pocket” shows this. He is also saying that the price of ignoring these issues and continuing to poison the world is your sons and daughters dying because the world will be uninhabitable soon enough and everyone will die (hence our blood will be in the water.) If u have seen the music video I believe the water and drinking the water is an analogy to doing all those bad things and when the business man aka the dad willingly drinks the water for money and then dies it’s because he was so blind to the consequences of his greed he couldn’t see that it affects everyone. And that water killed his child too. And the company is just a representation for all the big corporations in our world. That’s pretty much it!

this song is about the rich and greedy who run big corporations. They are killing the environment by putting profit over planet. Grandson is telling them that in the end, they too will suffer the consequences of their actions and there will be no excuse for what they have done.

I think it’s about separated parent, and one parent using the child for gain or money and lying to them about the other parent, and when the child finds out the truth to why one parent kept them away from the other what are they going to say, its not forgivable when it was for their own gain!

This isnt a personal interpretation but you all should watch the official video for it if you haven't, it gives much, much context and clues to the meaning (Which, I, in fact, am still trying to figure out for myself)

This song is a song that i think means the government is killing the human race for money and power this is god trying to set us free but government is declining and the “blood in the water” part i think means that all the deaths of lack of food and the chemicals in the water are killing people when they try to drink it and so everyone so reads this.........................Take care of our planet please we will end up going extinct but i think grandson is saying save our planet by pointing out about the government killing the human race please recycle.

Per come la vedo io la canzone parla del ciclo della violenza, di come in questo mondo persone per puro interesse personale, molte volte soldi, uccidono altre persone.
L'ho pensato per le linee che dicono "now i am the violence, I am the sickness" e penso si riferisca al fatto che dopo aver ucciso qualcuno, le persone che lo conoscevano cercheranno vendetta e di conseguenza si creerà un ciclo di violenza. Alla fine dice anche "when the last tree has fallen, the animal can't hide" lasciando intendere che ogni azione avrà conseguenza. Il tutto può essere legato a un trauma dell'artista, però vedo anche molto plausibila la versione sul cambiamento globale

I'm pretty sure that its saying that our future isn't going to be pretty if we keep giving into the government. The lines "You poisoned me just for another dollar in your pocket" means that the government is controlling and lying to us just for more money.

Well, it kind of reminds me of humanity.. It may mean that since humanity is so greedy, consequices come for your actions. Poison? Well, I get it, but I can't exactly explain it in words. You know how people make people want revenge? That's what I'm thinking. "You'll never get free"? Well, you can't escape what you did, aka you can't escape your ALIBI. Sounds familiar? "What's your alibi?" Yep. It all makes since now, doesn't it. He may be referring to the bible, and it makes since. Blood in the water also might mean death, and this song also reminds me of the Second Coming. But the "I am the Violence, I am the Sickness" will most likely refer fo revenge. And back to the poison, "You poisoned me just for, another dollar in your pocket." Sounds pretty greedy, huh?

I believe it's about how water companies have put chemicals it the water that are harmful to us (like fluoride which has been shown to be a neurotoxin https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/features/fluoride-childrens-health-grandjean-choi/). Mercury, which is also a neurotoxin, being injected into us at high doses through our vaccines while we are babies (https://rense.com/general24/out.htm). They are against us. Poisoning us for their greed of money and power. So, that is what I think it means by "What are you going to do when there's blood in the water" refers to what are we going to do when our most basic needs and things that keeps us from sickness (water and vaccines) kill us or makes us dumber.
