I met you in 82, over a crate of beer and not a few I cracked a can and so did you, we're going to change the world The ghetto kings of downside town-the estates and parks of our hallowed ground Doing anything that we found, and on the river flowed You'd take a drink from Rev. Jimmy Jones You'd cross the street on the path the gunman roams Thrown aside and left to waste, that was you - you knew your place Wander round, get off your face, and on the river flowed On and on the river flow - we are the undertow On and on the river flow - we are the undertow I don't know how you made it through all the smoke and brew you do It sure has left its mark on you but you're still with us today Life goes on and round we go and words can kill these things I know Sometimes you cut deeply so, but on the river flows You'd set the table for barber Sweeney Todd You'd clip the wings of any rising god But man can't live on hope alone, it can be cut all that is grown Broke your spirit but not your bones and on the river flows CHORUS You're working now - forced to the race I know it left a bitter taste But the rising tide had covered your face Nothing you could do But I still remember the day you said That the river flowing through my head Would take me far or leave me dead And all you said was true
