It’s a long road down the river deep ‘n wild 
 Every twist and turn a wonder-dale 
It’s a scary ride we’d give anything to take 
Let yourself bleed 
 Leave a footprint on every island you see

Hey you, child of rape, the riverbed awaits 
Snow white, pitch-black, your life such strife 
Heavenward, deep down, I’ll show you such sights 
 Believe it, we live as we dream, scream 

He will go down he will drown drown, deeper down 
The river wild will take your only child 
He will go down he will drown drown deeper down 
The mills grind slow in a riverbed ghost town

He will go down he will drown drown, deeper down 
The river wild will take your only child 
He will go down he will drown drown deeper down 
The mills grind slow in a riverbed ghost town

He will go down he will drown drown, deeper down 
If you want me, then do come across 

What is it you dream of, child of mine? 
The magic ride, the mermaid cove? 
 Never met a kinder heart than yours 
Let it bleed 
 Leave a footprint on every island you see

I am the painted faces, the toxic kiss 
 Sowing of doubt, troll beneath the bridge 
Come across 
 Death by a thousand cuts 
 Believe it, we live as we dream, scream 

He will go down he will drown drown, deeper down 
The river wild will take your only child 
He will go down he will drown drown deeper down 
The mills grind slow in a riverbed ghost town

He will go down he will drown drown, deeper down 
The river wild will take your only child 
He will go down he will drown drown deeper down 
The mills grind slow in a riverbed ghost town

He will go down he will drown drown, deeper down 
If you want me, do come across 

I am the desert-scape, the sand inside your hourglass 
I am the fear and abuse, the leper children 
 Every eye sewn shut

We will go down we will drown drown, deeper down 
The river wild will be our last ride 
We will go down we will drown drown, deeper down 
The mills grind slow in a riverbed ghost town

 Beautifully shy as you are 
 Never lose your heart 
And do come across
