I refuse no river
It’s a revelation that I discovered

I’ll follow your many guiding lights
And tear away through your love
I’ll follow your many guiding lights
And now I tell you
To follow me under, far below
The deeper the secrets, far below
I’m pulling you under, far below
The deeper the secrets, marry every lie we told

Hidden by a shadow cast by the street lights
Black walls are closing in fast tonight
I’m abandoning all my thoughts and hiding here
By the firelight in a mother’s open arms
But you know it’s never over when the pain begins to come
When everything around you falls apart and comes undone
And you fail to take back what you’ve done
Now the tears start to fall and panic brings me to my knees
You choke me on the floor and grip my neck so I can’t breathe
Just take a bow and then you make my body
Hollow, hollow, hollow

You know my name
You know my fate
Take my shame, my shame
Take my pain
Wash away the blame
Follow me down
Follow me down
Follow me down to solid ground

There’s a presence around you as the colors start to blur
To have a passion for painting letters and comprehending words
Be prepared to understand it’s not the world at fault
And there will always be somebody to catch you when you fall
Show me how to live
Teach me how to tolerate
Encourage me to give
Empower me to love and celebrate

I’ll follow your many guiding lights
And tear away through your love
I’ll follow your many guiding lights
And now I tell you
To follow me under, far below
The deeper the secrets, far below
I’m pulling you under, far below
The deeper the secrets, binding both the worlds we know
Follow
