lyrics

I’ve forsaken the lion / thrown my lot to the lamb
It’s for no lack of trying that you're wondering who I am
Golden rules and diamond rings – and secrets passed around
I’m hanging on to precious things…
but I’d sell them – sell them for a song
Come down to the river to wash your tired eyes
And let the water soothe a weary soul, and loose these binding ties
It’s a cart-before-the-horse affair, where nothing moves ahead
You see obstacles not really there, and they're filling you dread
Something’s stirring in my breast – my pride is burning strong
And though it never seems to rest, I’d sell that for a song
Come down to the river and bless your tired eyes
And set your boat upon the water and release its mooring ties
I won’t bide by your philosophy – won’t drink from your silver cup
They’ll be no coins a’changing hands until you’ve woken up
Cover your tracks with myrtle leaves, and branches straight and long
It’s a secret way that winds and weaves…
It tricks and it deceives / there are no late reprieves / it never gives – only receives…
For a song
