DAMN RIVER RISINí


WORDS & MUSIC: HANK ďHOLY ROLLERĒ RAY
COPYRIGHT CONTROL, 2008


Through the cracks in the concrete rats creep in to spy
How roaches fight the revolution of the baby flies and Iím lonely
And I lie-low
Jagged silhouettes and endless silent silver streams
And there within a broken frame a faded effigy and I look out
At Damn River rising
I shudder at the neariní thunder
At the rain that hits the floor
I shudder at damn river rising
At the mud swept through the door
Through the door

 

In the twilight I still see her coming up the hall
The patter of her naked feet still echoes from the walls and Iím shaking inside
Watch the river rising
The rooms are full of laughter and her whispers and her sighs
And Iíve been slowly dying since the river took her life and Iím lonely
Trembling with fear
I shudder at the nearing thunder
At the rain that hits the floor
I shudder at damn river rising
At the mud swept through the door
Through the door

 

The world outside is drowning and the riverís got my soul
Salvationís hard to find within these walls of my broken home and Iím trembling inside
Wastiní away
For all the plans we made the muddy waters washed away
Leaving me with her picture and a fading memory and Iím lonely
Watch the river rising
I shudder at the nearing thunder
At the rain that hits the floor
I shudder at damn river rising
At the mud swept through the door
Through the door
Through the door
