Down by the Riverside


A question to ask, to wrap around one's head
Dressed in white, fade to black
The second I raise, I forget
In the valley of the deep
Raging rivers never sleep
Untouched greatness meets defeat
Lost in battle, both shall weep
In silence it pours
Behind a veil of masked illusion
Seeking comfort through delusion
Yet no sound when water breaks
When Madness Raises up the stakes
Delusion conquers
Defeat
Raging rivers never sleep
Beds are open, time to reap
To ask for answers from the deep
When we go wide, forget to weep
Greatness

In silence we stride, down by the riverside
