lyrics

down by the river
barefoot in the sand
drawn to the current
I know this current never will end
rise up where I stand
soak up all I am
now rise

I want to be suspended
in everything forever, pressure
my golden moment
wash me so clean
cityscapes are sinking
I'm sinking smiling, naked
overwhelm me
I'll gasp for air

I'll gasp for air
I'll gasp for air
carried by the waves to the infinite ocean beds
make me aware
make me aware
I am at the mercy of waves big as industry
taller than industry
dark as infinity
time, close your rivers above me
now

down by the river
clothes torn by the wind
fighting is useless
I only start a fight if I win

I want to be suspended
in everything forever, pressure
my golden moment wash me so clean
cityscapes are sinking
I'm sinking smiling, naked
overwhelm me

I'll gasp for air
I'll gasp for air
I'll gasp for time
close your rivers above me
