"Clearwater" as written by and Richard Stewart Addinsell....
Is this a mystic deep dark spell
or a joke to make us come undone and yell
another blackness tries again
to bend our will behind our backs
and hold us down til' we say

when will this be over when
will we be free in the end
and in the end will the water run clear
and all the cold disappear into clearwater clear
so deep that we can all come clean

is this a madman's time to tell
to sell a fate that burns our eyes from our lives
well I say

when will this be over when
will we be free in the end
and in the end will the water run clear
and all the sad disappear into clearwater clear
so deep that we can all come clean
clearwater clear

so deep that we can all come clean
clearwater clear

so deep that we can all come clean
clearwater clear

    General Comment"This song was inspired by my hope that the world would soon heal itself. Watching events unfold on TV was maddening and after seeing so much negativity day in and out and I found myself turning off the TV one night and wandering over to the piano, sitting there for only a moment before starting to write. "Clearwater" was done an hour later. Most likely the fastest song I've ever written."
