Pain Lies On The Riverside
snow
Live


Pain Lies On The Riverside

 
I have never taken life
yet I have often paid the price
And you, you are a victim of this age
And the guilt that hangs around your neck
has got me locked up in a cage

You've got to learn to live until no end
but first you must learn to swim
All over again
because...

Pain lies on the riverside
and pain will never say goodbye
pain lies on the riverside
so put your feet in the water
put your head in the water
put your soul in the water
and join me for a swim tonight

I have forever, always tried
to stay clean and constantly baptized
I am aware that the river's banks are dry
and to wait for a flood
is to wait for life

I've got to learn to live until no end
but first I must learn to swim all over again
because...

Operation Spirit (The Tyranny of Tradition)   

Did you give it up?

Heard a lot of talk about the ocean
Heard a lot of talk about the sea
Heard a lot of talk about a lot of things
never meant that much to me

Heard a lot of talk about my spirit
Heard a lot of talk about my soul
but I decided that anxiety and pain
were better friends, so I let it go

Did you let it go?
Let's get it back
Let's get it back together

Heard a lot of talk about this Jesus
a man of love, a man of strength
But what a man was 2000 years ago
means nothing at all to me today

He could have been telling me about my higher self
But he only lives inside my prayer
So what he was may have been beautiful
but the pain is right now and right here

Let it go!
Let it go!
Let it go, my friend
And let's get it back
Let's get it back together

Did you give it up?back to top

John 3:5

 Jesus answered, ‚ÄúTruly, truly, I say to you,
unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
