"Down River" as written by and Abby Mandagi Lorenzo Sillito....
Finally
We have seen some things
Some awfully nice
Some dreadfully bad

But we will sing
Wash the blood, off our knees
'Cause our love breaks
Through ruff seas, our ship will sail it

I, don't, understand
How this world will work
'Cause time will tell us nothing
I'll take a chance on something

(Fill them up
Fill them
This time take you)

Down river
Down river
Down river
Down

(Walk these stairs
Put the pieces back together)

Go, don't stop
Go, don't stop
Go, don't stop
Go don't stop
Now go

Finally
We have seen some things
But bells in your hallways
Don't move you in the right place

So we will sing
Cast our hopes out to sea
Though our hearts break
Through violent winds, our ship will sail it

I, don't, understand
How this world will work
Cause time will tell us nothing
I'll take a chance on something

(Build them up
Build them
This time take you)

Down river
Down river
Down river
Down

(Walk these stairs
Put, the pieces, back together)

Go, don't stop
Go, don't stop
Go, don't stop
Go don't stop
Now go
Go, don't stop
Go, don't stop
Go, don't stop
Go don't stop
Now go

Go, don't stop
Go, don't stop
Go, don't stop
Go don't stop
Now go

    My InterpretationI think it's all about getting on with life and not worrying what it's all about. They are saying even when you get old you won't understand it either. I like the depressing images of stairs and hallways - arduous and long, hearts breaking and missing pieces, violent seas. But the cheeriness of "Go, Don't Stop" just tells you that you can get through it all (sail out on your hopes!)

    Lovely and brilliant song

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by them. It gives me that endurance to keep going no matter what. I always smile when I listen to it.

    General Commentsuch a motivating song. its too bad this isn't seen a lot lately. this song really takes the opinion that we shouldn't dwell and what the world is doing and we should just live for ourselves or we end up growing old and going down river. we need to go and don't stop.

    Lyric Correctionso we will sing, cast our hopes out to sea
    *though* our hearts break,
    through violent winds our ship will sail
    and I don't understand how this world
    would work
    cause time will tell us nothing
    I'll take a chance on something
