Out for kicks and in for trouble
Running to the rivers edge
Take a look in the dark water
Won't recognise what you'll see there
Walking down, down by the river
Frogs are jumping and the catfish flies

Ooh down the river of no return

Desperate men wait down by the river
Whispering shadows by the rivers edge
Would-be assassins or pleasure seekers
By the moon no way to tell
Black thoughts black water
Smooth surface hidden undertow

Rivers edge round the rivers bend
Around the river that never ends

The skeletons dance with sex by the riverside

I saw a girl
Was a killer
Murdered her love in June
Walking away from the river
Leaving behind the king of fools

Dark moons red river
Coloured by the howling moon

Rivers edge round the rivers bend
Around the river that never ends

Darkness snakes a sideways glance
From the rivers other side
Ride the river of no return

From the big black swamp
Reptile eyes
Comes a sideways glance
From the river's other side
