Whether laying down yourself beside it
Or slipping into its cool and rushing effects
Or drifting on it to where it broadens
Your admiration for its more elusive aspects

Being draw along by it
Carried under carried away
By its long-term membership

By the time the ice-huts hit the bottom
We were already home in bed
The most worthy men and the fiercest architects
Couldn't fight the current they couldn't save, they couldn't save the ship

Being drawn along by it
Carried under carried away
By its long-term membership

Bring on the springtime bring on the houseflies
Bring on the butterscotch river overspilling its banks
If you got you some withering power to amuse
You'll find its greatest frustration has its entertaining value

Being drawn along by it
Carried under carried away
By its long-term membership

Being drawn along by it
Carried under carried away
By its long-term membership

River wide
River wonder us

    General CommentI honestly couldnt tell yah what this song is about, but im trying to draw attention to the Hip forum, so people post more. Its a good song off of the Phantom Power album, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say that its about the long-term-negative consequences of doing something that feels good (ex. drug abuse, unprotected sex, eating fattening foods lol).

    General Commentit seems like a song about being an alcoholic, or perhaps a recovering alcoholic (in AA maybe)
