The river has run wild tonight
The birds have stopped singing and I've lost my sight
And you
You're not around
I keep my ground
Just quiet

The river has run wild tonight
It hurts to see you burning, burning oh so bright
See through
My looking glass
I sell the past
It's still oh so quiet

There's trouble in the heartland
You're drifting your own way
There is trouble
It's a wasteland
There's something you don't say

Toss me in the ocean and see if I float
I'm causing a commotion on a sinking boat
And you
You come undone
One by one
Let's start a riot

There's trouble in the heartland
You're drifting your own way
There is trouble
It's a wasteland
There's something you don't say

There's something you don't say
There's something you don't say
There's something you don't say
There's something you don't say

Toss me in the ocean and watch me drown
Oh, one man's smile is another man's frown
And you
You're not around
I keep my ground
Just quiet

There's trouble in the heartland
You're drifting your own way
There is trouble
It's a wasteland
There's something you don't say

The river has run wild tonight
