lyrics

Take me down to the river, broken in my dreams.
Where the noise and the clatter all but silenced in the stream.
Oh let me mourn, let me mourn, yes, I'll adorn this scorn.

Emptied of my pride and ego, well, ain't nothing more to show.
There's a fire quickening in the city and that city never slows.
They won't know, these dreams, will come aglow, beyond the snow.

Oh! Hear me now! Hear me now!
Why so downcast? Why so downcast, oh my soul!
Oh! Hear me now! Hear me now!
Why so downcast? Why so downcast, oh my soul!
This isn't the end, we are not done yet!
Hear me now! Hear me! Hear me now!

Take me down to my land! Oh! Take me back to my own!
Take me down to where the channel breaks and my sins open into the ocean.
Oh this cold repo, will never have my soul!

Oh! Hear me now! Hear me now!
Why so downcast? Why so downcast, oh my soul!
Oh! Hear me now! Hear me now!
Why so downcast? Why so downcast, oh my soul!
This isn't the end, we are not done yet!
Hear me now! Hear me! Hear me now!

Listen now, honey, don't make me wait!
This isn't final! We won't ever slow!
Though once we were trampled,
We will rise, from the smoke!
