Girl had a baby and she gave it to the world
World didn't want to take the baby from the girl
Float on the waterway
Your time never change your life around again
You'll fly far away

Time will never destroy your heart
Time will never destroy your heart

So in the reeds beside the river where she lay
Give it to the river that the world has shoved away
Float on the waterway
Your time, it never changed your life around again
You'll fly far away

Time will never destroy your heart
Time will never destroy your heart

Float on the waterway
Your time never changed your life around again
You'll fly far away

Time will never destroy your heart
Time will never destroy your heart
Time will never destroy your heart
Time will never destroy your heart

    General CommentLooked all over the place to get this song. Finally found it on a .RAR. This is originally a song by Irish Punk band Compulsion. I think its a song about Moses. I get an image of a mother putting a baby on a little boat, and sending it down a river.

    General CommentThis song was originally written and recorded by the Irish band "Compulsion". Chevelle did the retake on it, which to me, sounds better than the original.

    General CommentUgh...wake up and learn something...read the mythology of Perseus...in this song, such trail and tribulation are compared to that of the current state of brining a child up in the world when the world around is non-accepting (for any said reason)

    General CommentNote: I also find it sad that Chevelle lists Tool as one of its biggest influences, and consistently I see surface explanations for Chevelle's lyrics...dig a little deeper people.
