Kanye Wests Water is a religious song based primarily on Christian symbolism. In this track, that artists (Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign and Ant Clemons) compare themselves and the listeners to water. In terms of Christianity in particular, water has been used as a means to baptize believers, which is symbolic of them taking on a new, more-righteous life. Owing to this, the word water, as used throughout this song, likely refers to the purifying quality this substance has in relation to applicable religious beliefs.
As such, the point that Kanye, Ty Dolla and Clemons are trying to put forth is that we ourselves are pure. This does not mean, as the lyrics point out, that we are as perfect as Christ. Yet being that we are made up of 90 percent water, we also have the potential to lead righteous lives.
