Wasteland between us again
Broken bottles and cigarette ends
We can’t push the river
There’s treasure in the sand if you're looking

Into the river
Risk the tide
A brush with danger
A force for life
Forgotten voices
A toy figurine
Religious icons
Mislaid dreams

Memento mori rings
Silver bullets
Worn-out old pennies
We can’t push the river
Wait and see what the tide brings in

We are underwater
We risk the ride
A brush with death
Thirst for life
Broken promises
A widows grief
Lost childhood
True words and deeds
A slain ego
A fallen empire
Military buttons
Teeth of a liar

All are accepted as offerings to the river.
