In the middle of the night
From the mountains of faith

Something sacred I lost
And it's too hard to cross
And even though I know the river is wide
And try to cross to the opposite side

I go walking in my sleep
To a river so deep
And I've been searching for something
Something I would never lose

But now I'm tired and I don't want to walk anymore
Until I find what it is that I've been looking for
In the middle of the night
Through the jungle of doubt

Something so undefined
By the eyes of the blind
In the middle of the night
I'm not sure about a life after this
Baptized by the fire, I wade into the river

I go walking in my sleep
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We're all carried along
