lyrics

A mighty river is bound to overflow
It cannot help if its banks erode
A mighty river is bound to overflow
But the Earth can take it, she can bear the load
That’s how it goes

It’s in my nature to
Sting and so we sink together and I
Swear I couldn’t help myself but I
Thank you for the ride

You’re not the river, you’re not the undertow
And you would drown if I let you go
You’re not the river, you’re not the undertow
You cannot ruin what you don’t control
You don’t control me

It’s in your nature to
Sting and so we sink together and I
Swear you could have saved us both but you
Never even tried

I know I’ll survive your scorpion’s tail with
My thick skin, I’m hardly frail and I
Know I will not fail
I’m not a character in your cautionary tale with my free
Will, I’ll free myself

And leave you on this riverbed alone
You’re not the river, you are not the
Undertow
And I will leave you on this riverbed alone
