Lyrics: Peace River

Ride my raft down old Peace River,
call me back cuz I’m all shivers
and a thunderin’ rain and
it’s all that I can do

To keep it together and to float like a feather,
and to keep myself high above this world.
Cuz no one remembers wartorn Decembers
and a lack of something to do.
With the forests on fire, lost heart’s desire
well I certainly sure’s fuck do.

When we’re all lying and the young’uns are dying
and the newspapers write without a clue
propagandasizing and minimizing
all the problems in our hands.

Does the pope really care as he sits on his chair
with the kevlar on his sleeve?
So I’ll second guess our country’s best
and I’ll learn what not to do.

Well I’m not here to depress anyone,
it’s just time we opened up our eyes.
To the idiot strips, continental drift
and the big hole growing in my sky.
To the little things and the birdie sings,
and the girl who caught your eye.

So I ride my raft down old Peace River
call me back cuz I’m all shivers
and a thunderin’ rain and
it’s all that I can do.
