Song Title: Gently We Row
When 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 and 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 drew me a town
They drew me a fear and a need
They drew me a god and
They drew me some money
Hiding the truth far from me

I asked the cool fire light
Tell me, what I should believe
And they gave me a song
And they gave me a dance
And said sleep now your pain will relieve

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

I've stumbled and crawled
I've begged to know why
And I've been ashamed
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 her's 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 you'll 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
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
