lyrics

THE WOMAN IN THE RIVER

The woman in the river leads her congregation south
To leap from ancient waterfalls at old man mountain's mouth

Teens worship in the stream, baptized in gray and green
schooled at universities, minds of a hundred Ph.Ds

Kiss the rocks below
dissertations on the ice and snow
Steel-eyed brunette
Where have you led all your friends?

The woman in the river, pink with spring and voyeurs' gazes
sings to lure the lurking law-men from their hiding places

Great Danes search the waves, scent of criminals in their brains
One girl owns their respect, it's her youth they must protect a

Steel-eyed brunette
surrounds me in the rain on the leaves
Your hounds ain't found me yet
but you know exactly where i am...
