THE RIVER

I have travelled far
unto this pagan hole
where nothing is real
a place so pure as gold
she runs deep and strong
twisting like a snake 
a thousand miles long
a terror like a storm
on the river, on the river

Oh raining jangled tears
the shadows hold me near
burn down the dawn
now the furnace is gone yeah
deep inside my heart I can feel he is near me 
cold sweat drips down
illusion and fear
on the river, on the river

gunshot
river demon
hands of love hands of treason
oh shift the doctor, ditch the bones
on the river, on the river

turnaround, turnaround yeah turnaround
beating the darkside, yeah
the darkside 
turnaround darkside yeah turnaound
beating the darkside

I have travelled far 
unto this pagan hole
where nothing is real 
a place so pure as gold
deep inside my heart 
I can feel he is near me 
cold sweat drips down 
illusion and fear
on the river
