Not much of this makes sense to me 
The river leaves run cold and dry 
But it keeps me from swinging tree to tree 
And sometimes I'm too scared to even try 

Hashing through the possibilities 
They seem as endless as the sky 
You seek the truth and the quiet breeze 
But the air is too thin to reply 

Well I know that's where I'll never be 
Because I can see the summer's done 
I try to let the river flow in and out of me 
And pray I float the way I think I want 
And pray I float at all 

Distant notions of subtle residue 
Cling to minds from our past 
Tell us what is what and who made who 
But time's events move us too fast
 
Simple sentiments whisked away by anxious steel wool 
Struggling to content ourselves with what we think best 
That what makes happy of which we seem never full 
Is actually more than plenty for it is already possessed 

Well I know that's where I'll never be 
Because I can see the summer's done 
I try to let the river flow in and out of me 
And pray I float the way I think I want 
And pray I float at all 

Not much of this makes sense to me 
The river leaves run cold and dry 
But it keeps me from swinging tree to tree 
And sometimes I'm too scared to even try 

Utter confusion feigns clarity 
Scattered delusions excuses destiny 
It's never exactly how it appears to be 
It's too much for any of us who even try to see 

Well I know that's where I'll never be 
Because I can see the summer's done 
I try to let the river flow in and out of me 
And pray I float the way I think I want 
And pray I float at all
