Manic River


Forty days and forty nights have long since gone

See how the rain etches tears on my window

Wash away, wash away, the leaves and the earth

Leaving roots with nothing to hold, nothing to hold


But hold on


Look around, look around again for some damn sign

Crush and tumble away manic river

Avalanche, avalanche, your chance is one in nine

I’m needing roots and something to hold, something to hold 


Rush away manic river

Roll on out to that wide open sea

Come define and deliver

Gain purchase in our wealth and in our poverty


Strip away, strip every last myth from the man

Naked and grounded, no further to fall

Come alive, come alive with this last ditch plan

I need to find there’s a place to be free, or someone, or something I can be


Rush away manic river

Roll on out to that wide open sea

Come define and deliver

Gain purchase our wealth and in our scarcity

  

Rush away manic river

Roll on out to that wide open sea

Come define and deliver

Gain purchase in our health, with your mystery


Refrain

 

Lyrics

Performers:

That river again. This time it’s not calm, it’s turbulent, crazy, full of energy and life. If we let the power in, will it carry us or drown us?
