I hear river
Calling out names
Loud and clear
Some kind of strange
Journey between
Life and death
In the end
We return to the water

Dirty old river
It thrashes, it turns
I hear it speak
I know it's real

This hill
Born and raised
Dirt you hold
Tonight you never
Felt so old
But tonight you must return
Across cold water

Yeah dirty old river
It thrashes, it turns
I hear it speak
I know it's real

Yeah dirty old river
It thrashes, it turns
I hear it speak
I know the words are real
Why
Call me now
Why
Call me back to the water
