They are master and slave
We are sunlight and shadow
All roads to the river
I am lost. I am saved
I'm beloved and betrayed
All roads to the river

And the river runs wide
And the river runs deep
And I spit in the eye
Of safe company
When I dive right down
To the undertow
Well, the deeper I drown
Lord, the higher I'll go

I am whispering dreams
I am howling revolutions
All roads to the river
I am Valentine sweet
And I live in this nightmare
All roads to the river

And the river runs wide
The river runs deep
And I spit in the eye
Of safe company
When I dive right down
To the undertow
Well, the deeper I drown
Lord, the higher I'll go

This is nothing like we planned
That's the way it's always been
All roads to the river
I have hated and I have loved
I have prayed and I have sinned
All roads to the river

And the river runs wide
The river runs deep
And I spit in the eye
Of safe company
When I dive right down
To the undertow
Well, the deeper I drown
Lord, the higher I'll go
