lyrics

By his wing he got his words to a most high God
Like a feather from his mouth, a feather to the ground
And he died his hair black just to keep his name
Cigarettes and booze and the glory of fame

So he was only one man, two roads in the wood
He would travel both and he wished he could
But he had dined at the table with saintly men
And got a taste of the wine he might try again

He had a river flowing at each side
There was nothing gonna let him on by
So he shivered down to the bone
In fear and in debt of his memorial stones

Deep in the pockets of selfish men
He shoved his monsters under blankets thin
Then he ran to the people who turned inside
They had a taste of the water but not the tide

They had a river flowing at each side…

They would fight like David if they could
And they would do the right thing like we all know they should
But even the king was not that good

They bathed in the simple things and said it was enough
But their words couldn't float when the waters turned rough
And some got lost in the ocean deep
They had a taste of the salt but not enough to see

We had a river flowing at each side…

I would fight like David if I could
And I would do the right thing like I know full well I should
But even the king was not that good
