No, I'm not dead, just a head lighter 
Gone in the wind as dust of us requires 
I’m already ready for my arriving departure

Along your river 
Would there be enough grace to outweigh the grave? 
Along your side
Would there be enough legs for us to break? 
Along your river, I stand dry

Be thou my vision 
Hide tide on the crystal seas
And be thou my vision 
Run down in the golden streets 
And be thou my vision 
'cause I've never seen nothing

No, I'm not dead, just ahead of the rest
Words weight bearing beams, always seem to hold everything
Oh, hack through the view 
You need them, but you do not want to

Along your river
Would there be enough grace to outweigh the grave? 
Along your side 
Would there be enough legs for us to break? 
Along your river
I stand dry

Be thou my vision 
Hide tide on the crystal seas
And be thou my vision 
Run down in the golden streets 
And be thou my vision 
'cause I've never seen nothing

Him and her 
Hem and haw
'til all is gone, all is lost
Meanwhile, you and I 
Euthanize our supplies of alibis

Who am I to ask the questions?
Who am I?
