Hear the distant groundswell here us fight it out
You wanted to believe in what we are now
Hear the distant thunder that will never go away
Inside the fallow fields, beside the homeless trains

No one will be with you on the day that you are free
So stand up straight and take care please
I know you haven’t noticed, but this river is a song
Of everything ill do to get by, and get along
Once you are gone

So wash your face, and dry your hands
This is what we are now. The decision is intact
We had them all believing that we were a song
Now the melody’s gone flat, and the words are all wrong

Be careful of the river she’ll sneak up on you
Stop whatever you are doing. Plant the seeds in the soil
And if you do not tend to them, they cannot tend to you
And your holy water will mean nothing

How’s the rain gonna fall if the sun keeps shining?
If the world stops turning when you go away
How’s the rain gonna fall and heal the river
If there’s no more breathing.
If there’s no more grey.
What are we all to do?
