always fighting the storm
afraid to suffer the wound
all praise to that conscious one
who always suffers the wound child
suffers the wound child

hey!
suffers the wound!
never turns from love
give it up

always try to explain
afraid to lay naked in the sun
he's crazy she dances in the light
the crowd jeers they won't put up a fight

hey!
suffers the wound!
never turns from love
give it up
until my heart is free to roam
she won't never leave me alone
saved by the river now
saved

always fighting the storm
buildin' shelter to house our lack of love
we're only here for a while
tear it down and suffer the wound

hey!
suffers the wound!
never turns from love
give it up
until my heart is free to roam
she won't never leave alone
saved by the river now, saved
(never turns from love, never turns to
hate)

always suffers the wound, never turns
from love
never turns to hate
saved by the river now
always suffers the wound, never turns
from love
never turns to hate

an invisible mississippi, ganges or a nile
I can feel the quiet river rage
forcin' my lips into a smile
don't believe that the world is empty
just too noisy to hear the sound
I can feel the quiet river rage
and I'm fallin' down
saved by the river now
saved

    General CommentI think that this song is about two people sharing a love that isn't working but is a habit and they are doing everything they think is right to hold on to it when in fact they need to let it go in order to move on. I think this song is awesome because you can feel power in it.

    General CommentI think this song is talking about the pain a peaceful person deals with because they don't want to "turn to hate."

    I like katox's view though and it doesn't really matter which view is correct (katox's makes more sense). What matters is the power behind this song. You can hear the emotion Ed puts into this song and I love it. Ed is saying that we are not going to be on this Earth forever so show some love.

    I think that this is about the "river" of energy some people believe surrounds us all. It is said that if one can feel this energy, it brings peace to the that person. That's what I think the quiet river is.

    When he says that it's too noisy to hear the sound, he's talking about the constant through process occurring in most of our minds. This incessant thinking is mental noise, and it distracts a peson from living in the moment and feeling this quiet river. When I listen to this album, I believe most of the album is about this sort of thing.

    General CommentYeah, totally agree there. Most of the album is about that, a sense of losing oneself to a greater spiritual power, whether love or something else. Magnificent album.
