Well, I jumped into the river even though I couldn’t swim

And I was tossed and I was tumbled by the waters therein

They swept me down to the ocean, boys, the ocean far and wide

And when I saw how deep the ocean was I knew I couldn’t hide

How come the river flows down to the sea

And how come the ocean rolls right over me

 

I couldn’t hide from the feelings that sent me half insane

I couldn’t hide from the demons that lived inside my brain

I couldn’t hide from the truth now boys, so I looked it in the face

And when I saw how pure the truth was I knew I was in the race

Chorus

 

I was in the race against the minutes that would bring my life to an end

I was in the race against the hard times that claimed so many friends

Well, you can jump into the river now boys, you can swim down to the sea

You can try every trick in the whole damn book

But I won’t set you free

I don’t get you free

Well, I won’t set you free

Set you free

Chorus

The River
