Go ahead ask me what a metaphor is
I couldn't tell you
Some days I puke avalanche my tongue left to interpretation
Everybody's got a favorite jacket but me
I wear what I find hard
Covers over stability with bookshelves and house slippers
I'm on the grind, paperbacks, sticky slacks
No sharp knives and the revolving kitchen door
Real chef holds his own scarf protection neck
Chewing garlic cloves to keep my immunity in check
Indians some on the beach house
Hotel in Normandy
Never stuck my thumb out for the train
But I stick my tongue out to the pain
Frozen stuck to cold veins
Imprints of images relived haunt my eyes like flies on dead horses
Surrounded by kids in loin cloth
With sharpened stones and tattoos of microphones nailed to crosses
Nightmares of bosses biting off my fingers
Pop siren singers pushing fear into ears en masse
The glass house caves back into the sand

I fight the zombies off with a mic stand as they tear at my feet
The romance of defeat a tireless notion advance in motion
The constant push for something just past the point of attainability
The plague of thought the sought after keep seeking
Once you taste the fruit thirst becomes heat seeking
Life is simple, you do what you feel
You could try to help but you're gonna rob and steal
Whether you make a difference or make it scary
Believe me every kind of existence is necessary
No sting, no honeybee
Compassion the everlasting ocean of my heart
Shipwrecks and artifacts
Drowning in the lost baggage department
Everywhere is lost tags
Cocaine and magic mirrors
Just a sappy, sorry, sucker dragging his heart along on a kite string
Waiting for the phone to ring and the inbox to bling
What made me walk this way, raised to be tougher than leather
Never knew the rain could weigh down my feathers
Gimme something that good times
Lift your soul above the floor
Trap door's open, hoping for revenge or revival
You can't fight the tital waves
Hang on, remain strong
Remain calm or flip your fucking lid
I try to be honest like a kid, a little human before the lies regret
Blood, sweat, tears, sex and debt
Nobody's fucked your best friend yet
Or stung you with a deeper sting
You're gonna see some things that are gonna wanna make you tear your eyes out
And doubt the existence for love and purpose
And don't get nervous, it's all worth it
We deserve all we get
I ain't wet so I know for sure I'm not finished yet
An angel told me when I was five that I was lucky to be alive I've always known the end
I've just been along for the ride not by shark attack or big cat
Just relax now let the current take me back
Back to what we mostly are made of and mostly afraid of
The water, the river, the giver, the taker, maker, and breaker of lives and land
The strong papers of the giant hands
I will die in a river, floating with the current swallowing and giving in
This is where the end begins, wash away my sins
There is no such thing, let it fall, this is all I ever was
Just because, just because

(I will die in a river)

If I've always known the fact that water she won't take me back
And when I hold my breath I will not stand back from the bank
Thanks for your encouragement and caution, keep it
This is my awesome
That's it that's all I'm headed for the waterfall

(I will die in a river)

I will die in a river, giving everything I had to give
This is my last chance to live, now water keeps flowing
At least I know where i'm going
That's it that's all I'm headed for the waterfall
Just because, just because

(I will die in a river)

I will die in a river, floating with the current swallowing and giving in
This is where the end begins, wash away my sins
There is no such thing, let it fall, this is all I ever was
Just because

(I will die in a river)
