lyrics

The River Lately

Have you been to the river lately?
You should see how high the water is now.
Last time, you couldn’t drown here
had you been trying.
(Alternate: Last time, you could have found
everything you've been hiding)
Waist deep and stepping up
Step up to higher ground

All those clowns making jokes about our lives
They never get to the punchline
You probably have it all figured out anyway
Don’t let that keep you from trying

Transparent as the air, you say with your mind
all that words can’t say for you
Should be easy to prove light is a frequency of thought
and thought a frequency of sound.
There are no short cuts where we’re going,
We’re going to have to play it through.
Knee-deep and stepping up
Step up to higher ground

With all those thoughts making noise all the time
Stick around for the punchline
You probably have it all figured out anyway
Don’t let that keep you from trying

Look at that full moon, feel it pulling on your dreams.
Everyone who’s ever lived has danced with it.
Foghorn sounds down the bay. Freighter comes around the bend.
May you know you are loved while you’re alive to pass it on
May you know how much of a part of it all you are
Hold on. Hold on.

With all those thoughts making noise all the time
Stick around for the punchline
I’m still waiting….
