LyricsEdit

The little river is blue and long
I sat by the side of it as everything went wrong
I got a letter from the dry city's heart
You say the water distribution system's come all apart
And my place here's threatened
But I had it in my mind
And your face was on the skyline, so sweet and so kind
Let them come
Let 'em all come down
Let them take a good long look around
Let them see if my rivers won't suit them
Let them drown

The fish that swim there in the current
With their machine-like faces should be no deterrent
They'll all come toward me 
But I won't move
I know where I stand, I have nothing to prove

Because I had it in my heart that you were walking by
And the little river's waters became our separate skies
So let them come
Let 'em all come down
Let them take a good long look around
Let them see if my rivers won't suit them
Let them drown

Because I had it in my heart that you were walking by
And the whole world dissolved leaving only you and I
So let them come
Let 'em all come down
Let them take a good long look around
Let them see if my rivers won't suit them
Let them drown
