Mud River lyrics

Track 5 from The Other Country

Take me down where the line is broken
Where our eyes can find no light
Take me down to the edge of the river
Where the mud is thick with blight

I knew a woman whose eyes were flaming
From the struggles she had waged
Each one had left her weakened
by the fury of the blaze

But muddy water crawls slowly
It churns inside the mind
turns love to a parched well
where green rain is hard to find

I long to drink crystal water
Drink it fresh from the source
Soothes this burning desire
Safe from the spiteful mud

Just beyond the shadows
air moves like an arc
we can stretch our minds to touch it,
we can breathe it through the dark

there’s water there for the drinking
water for the hurt
rolling cleanly through meadow
where deer can slake their thirst

Our light is drawn from rivers
deep in inside the heart
Take a look and tell me
Where do the rivers start?

I long to drink crystal water
Drink it fresh from the source
rolling cleanly through meadow
where deer can slake their thirst
