River running splits the earth
Drop of water floods the world
Swim until you taste the hurt
Or you float over every turn

The shadow on the harvest moon
A blemish in an empty womb
It brings your skin that evening chill
You see your breath it seems to glow

In the overgrowth
The way ahead is hidden
Like a sunken stone
But it's easier than breaking
From the undertow
So close your eyes and let your senses
Breathe in blind
Just keep your head above the waterline

Your conscience told you not to try
But you instinctually fed the fire
So now you've got to ride the wave
That's flowing from the mess you've made
