I followed you down to the river and I was afraid, I was afraid for my life.
The river came down from the heavens and it took me to the edge of the sky.

In the shadow you gave me a rainbow it filled the space, the space of my mind.
All the riddles that you had told me, they unraveled like a snake in the sun.

Oh the green green of the river it had showed me what would come.
And the lightning it held me, on the tip of my tongue.

I could not believe it the sound it shook me with a whisper and hum.
And love lifted every thing from the ground and into the sun.

    General Commentthis song is so fucking beautiful
    this whole album seems to be saying that love is simple, or atleast should be simple, but somewhere along the way we've managed to make it complicated, whether it be with technology, science, trhough the media, or whatever
    in the end, we should just love everyone and keep it simple

    General Commentand yes, i think all the imagery of nature in the lyrics of this album, ie. in this song, are sort of a way of saying we just ened to get back to nature and just looking at nature and it's beauty makes us realise how easy it is to love the world and how simply beautiful our world is
