The Wallflowers - Move The River Lyrics


It’s not the shadow of a lost plane
Or the rumble of a railway line
Coming with the strength of an iron horse
And without you on its mind
I’ve been sitting on the fire escape of the
Fairmont looking down
There’s not a bridge going anywhere
You’d wanna be found

It’s not a good idea to cross it
It may not have another side
May be hot enough to melt your clothes
But you won’t step out alive
You’re gonna wanna get your lamp lit
Can’t nobody see you now
It’s not as dark as it’s gonna get
And we’re a long way from higher ground

There’s no way around it
There’s no way around it
However you feel about it
We’re gonna move the river
However you feel about it
We’re gonna move the river

The sky’s the color of an ashtray
Full of Van Gogh’s yellow clouds
And those aren’t gospel songs you hear
Being sung in the crowd
May a ladder appear in the smoke
Through a hole we can climb
See the torches on a battered boat
Of a ghost ship without any guide

There’s no way around it
There’s no way around it
However you feel about it
We’re gonna move the river
Whatever you do about it
We’re gonna move the river

We’ve been sleeping in the backseat
On our rooftops and open roads
Soon we’ll be riding on oil cans
Wearing everything that we own
If men are all brothers then brother
Why do you treat us this way?
We’ve already been overserved
May be sick but not too much to say

There’s no way around it
There’s no way around it
However you feel about it
We’re gonna move the river
Whatever you do about it
We’re gonna move the river
Whatever you do about it
We’re gonna move the river
No two ways about it
We’re gonna move the river
