"The Longest River" as written by and Kenneth Paul Cook Christopher Brian Dyck....
Wandering nomad
Stare at the Sun
Seek your forgiveness
Behold the one

All roads lead to
The mighty river

Fear the earth
Open your eyes
You cowards

Walk through
This wasteland
Crawl to your home
Stumble in darkness
Dust you shall own

All roads lead to
The longest river

Fear the earth
Open your eyes
You cowards

Screaming from beyond
The sealing of the tomb
Ruler of the soul
The river's running true

Rising in the east
The serpent
Is unleashed
Fills your heart
With dread
The river's running red

Demon of the fog
Bound by the rising tide
Demon of the mist
Cast down by
Sacred light

    My InterpretationCould the "longest river" be death?? Water and rivers (Styx etc.) are often associated with death.

    Lyrics such as:

    "Screaming from beyond
    The sealing of the tomb
    Ruler of the soul
    The river's running true"

    Lead me to believe that the song is talking about the inevitability / certainty of death, no matter the life you have lived ... death does not discriminate and awaits us all.
