Gently We Row Lyrics

My soul crashed into my body
Falling into consciousness
That's when my mind began this illusion
Of taking it step after step

I looked into Mother's eyes
I said: "Tell me what I should believe"
She drew me a room with a light
Said: "Just turn it off when you leave"

Slow, slow, this river is slow
We're all out here all on our own
Row, row, gently we row
And one day we'll find our way home

Step after step, they drew me a town
They drew me a fear and a need
They draw me a god and they drew me some money
Hiding the truth far from me

I asked the cool firelight:
"Tell me what I should believe"
They gave a song and they gave me a dance
And said: "Sleep now, your pain we'll relieve"

Slow, slow, this river is slow
We're all out here all on our own
Row, row, gently we row
And one day we'll find our way home

I've stumbled and crawled, I beg to know why
And I've been shamed when I've chosen to lie
In all of this darkness I have searched for a light
To come and find me and when I found me

I wrapped my arms 'round my own daughter
As she fell into her place and time
And as her mind creates her illusions
I won't complicate hers with mine

She looked into her mother's eyes
She said: "Tell me what I should believe"
And I drew her a door
And I drew her a key
And I said: "When you're ready
Can you come and find me?
And we'll walk out of here
And tomorrow will be a new day"

Slow, slow, this river is slow
And you are never out here on your own, no
Row, row, gently we row
Oh... and together we'll find our way

Slow, slow this river is slow
Life is not what it seems
Row, row, gently we row
The truth is, it's only a dream
