Riverlike

lyrics

Run, quickly run away from that shit
that is not for you
that is wasted glamour
soon, it will be time to dress your ideas
don't they burn much more
than every claim

and flow above the deals
they tend to be unkind
flow above the fake, the greedy and the fool

and show them how the river never stops
and how it gets to the sea
tell them a river never stops

Now grab all the words left unsaid
and give them a place in the space between
what they fear and what is real ...
look at what you could not foresee
now take a bow, then raise your head up

flow above the things that tend to be unkind
fly above the fake, the greedy and the fool
to show them how the river never stops
and it gets to the sea
tell them a river never stops
don't you remember?

Grab all the words left unsaid
and give them a place in the space between

it just flows into the sea
see ...
