To The River Lyrics

They are master and slave

We are sunlight and shadow

 

All roads to the river

 

I am lost I am saved

I'm beloved and betrayed

 

All roads to the river

 

And the river runs wide

And the river runs deep

 

And I spit in the eye

Of safe company

 

When I dive right down

To the undertow

 

Well the deeper I drown

 

Lord the higher Ill go

 

I am whispering dreams

I am howling revolutions

 

All roads to the river

 

I am valentine sweet

And I live in this nightmare

 

All roads to the river

 

And the river runs wide

The river runs deep

 

And I spit in the eye

Of safe company

 

When I dive right down

To the undertow

Well the deeper I drown

 

Lord the higher Ill go

 

This is nothing like we planned

Thats the way its always been

All roads to the river

I have hated and I have loved

I have prayed and I have sinned

All roads to the river

And the river runs wide

The river runs deep

 

And I spit in the eye

Of safe company

 

When I dive right down

To the undertow

 

Well the deeper I drown

 

Lord the higher Ill go
