We all go down to the river
Into the waters we must climb
There we get what we are given
Then we get drunk from its wine

We all must live in the river
We all must swim in its banks
We do what we can amongst the crocodiles
And try to keep away from the snakes

We all go down to the river
Bathe in the mud and the mire
We’re all born to live in the river
The water that flows there is the flood of our desire

Flow, that’s how it goes
Winding through our lives, through the highs and the lows
Flows, nobody knows
Where its currents will take you, you must swim with its tow

We all must dance in the river
Move with the water as it glides
We shake to its ebb and we groove to its flow
The music it creates makes us feel more alive

We all go down with the river
We all move around with its tide
Some like it deep and some like it shallow
And everybody has their favorite sides

When we reach the end of the river
It’s the ocean, where we shall be
Then we say goodbye to the river
As we drift out into the deep

Down from the mountains, born from the sky, raining down from way up high
Flows through the valleys with little design into our lives

So,
Take me down to the river
Let the current take me away
The cold waters might make me shiver
But the watery embrace will warm my decay

We all go down to the river
Into the waters we must climb
There we get what we are given
Then we get drunk from its wine

We all go down to the river
Into the waters we must climb
There we get what we are given
Then we get drunk from its wine

Flow, that’s how it goes
Winding through our lives, through the highs and the lows
Flows, nobody knows
Where its current will take you, you must swim with its tow
