Gently We Row Lyrics

My soul crashed into my body
Falling into consciousness
That’s when my mind became this illusion
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 on our own
Row, row, gently we row
One day we'll find our way home

Step after step
They draw me a town
They draw me a fear avenue
They draw me a God
They draw me some money
Hiding the truth far from you
I asked the cool fire light
Tell me what I should believe
They gave a song and they gave a dance
Said sleep now your pain will relieved

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

I stumbled across, I begged to know why
I’ve been shamed
I’ve chosen to lie
All of this darkness, I have searched for a light
To come and find you
And when I found me

I wrapped my arms around my own daughter
She fell into her place and time
There is a mind, creates her illusion
I won’t complicate her 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 are ready, you come and find me
And we walk out of here
Tomorrow will be a new day

Slow, slow this river is slow
You are never out here on your own
Row, row, gently we row
And together we’ll find our way home
Slow, slow this river is slow
Life is not what it seems
Row, row, gently we row
Truth is only a dream
