Written by a river near Truro whilst walking around Cornwall

lyrics

Come with me down to the river let us cleanse our sins
Used to think there was something to believe in, in the places I’d been
Walk with me please over hilltops ‘til our backs break in
We bleed for the purpose of winning in the life we’re in
If I dropped you out in the river would you swim back in?
If I dropped you out in the river would you swim back in?

Come with me out of the city let us clear our minds
Your toys don’t mean nothing to no-one if they cost your time
It seems for a portion of money we’ll give our lives
It seems if we all just kept dancing we’d be just fine
If you lost your gaze in the fire would you lose your mind?
If you lost your gaze in the fire you might change your mind

So go moan for man, Don’t wait for better days
Soon you know the things you love might be the things you loved just yesterday

Come with me down to the river let us cleanse our sins
Tell stories of glory and tales of the places we’ve been
It seems just a little bit funny to me
We spend half our money on things we don’t really need
If I dropped you down in the valley would you run to me
If I dropped you down in the valley would your mind run free

So go moan for man, Don’t wait for better days
Soon you know the things you love might be the things you loved just yesterday

So go moan for man don’t wish your days away
I tend to find the things you love will burn the brightest as they fade away
