Lyrics

I hear that dark holler
Coming up on deep waters
Combing through those words
My grandmother said

Nickel in the wine
Spit three times

(Chant)

Tap the accelerator
Treads on the separator
Superstition going to my head

Can’t remember which one it was
That’ll keep me from dying
To get me over to the other side
I got to keep on trying

Don’t step on a crack
Salt down your back
Nickel in the wine
Spit three times

Wish but don’t tell
One past twelve
Don’t step on a crack
Salt down your back
Nickel in the wine
Spit three times

(Chant)

Sunset like glass shattered
Beneath me steel rattles
Don’t rush or you might miss it
Touch that third rivet

Can’t remember which one it was
That’ll keep me from dying
To get me over to the other side
I got to keep on trying

Lift your feet when you cross the rail
Turn your head at a black cat’s tail
Wish but don’t tell
One past twelve
Don’t step on a crack
Salt down your back
Nickel in the wine
Spit three times

(Chant x2)
