River King

from Ultraviolet by Misery Signals

lyrics

Even words less than nothing
A shade in the falling dusk
Do we ever see?
Time spreads so wide and all we reach is the moment as narrow as it is
Now pay your toll here at the banks of the strait without a bridge for miles
Can't see across, copper coin under tongue to pay your toll
Passage to the ferryman, bound to the further shore
A shade in the falling dusk
Please let me see
Time spreads so wide and all we reach is the moment as narrow as it is
Build a vessel that will not leak with current so strong on legs so weak
We must sail with no wings to speak into an unknown we all must face
Revel, rejoice, and wade into the dark or into the dawn
Can't turn back, can't stay still and drown
Can't point to a throne where you rule, where you control
River King, River King, can't turn back the river flow
Let go of it, time spreads so wide and all we reach is the moment as narrow as it is
