You escaped the morning
And left your home
And went down the river
Where shadows roam
You can hear them calling
As you close your eyes
And drift off down the river
Breathe and say goodbye

(CHORUS)
Down the river child
You’re gonna find a friend
Who will take what you want and need?
And lead you to the end
Float down the river child
And you will be condemned
It takes what you want to be

You bleed temptation
And turn the river red
And now you’re drowning reason
The demons in your head
It leaves you suffocating
It will pull you down
And you can taste the water
As they watch you drown

(CHORUS)
And leads you to the end

His breath is short
And his mouth dry
His pupil’s are small
Lost within lifeless eyes
The spoons are all burned
And his shoelaces bare
And with the needles kiss
His face a blank stare
He has lost his will
He has grown so I'll
Now the tide washes him away, oh yeah
He cannot heal
No he cannot feel
The hunter becomes the prey
The sun is shining through the trees
The water’s risen to his knees
And now it has him, he cannot breathe
No he can’t, no her can’t
It takes him under it drags him down
And he’s forgotten, forgotten
Without a sound

(CHORUS)
And leads you to the end

Oh yeah baby
Oh yeah
Breathe and say goodbye
