lyrics

Blacken your eyes and leave no evidence.
Pull down the sheets and cover all that's been before.
What can't be seen won't always hide the pain of all.

The fears, the falls, the breaks, the calls,
The chains you made are failing.

Is this a cry like all the ones before?
Tell me no lies and I shall leave my fears at home.
Did you believe these demons would all fade away?

The fears, the falls, the breaks, the calls,
The chains you made are failing.

I'll meet you down by the river.

Pull back the sheets and clean these broken things.
Quietly hang the shame away it won't be seen.
Let me go drown all evidence, i'll make no sound.

The fears, the falls, the breaks, the calls,
The chains you made are failing.

I'll meet you down by the river.

Would you change this time?
Or just waster your life?
Should I wait your call?
Would you change this time?

I'll meet you down by the river
(wash it all away)
I'll meet you down by the river
(swollen by the rain)
I'll meet you down by the river
(I'll wait your call)
I'll meet you down by the river
