Where the river used to flow

from by You Big Ox



I shift my gaze, to the ocean fronts and swells
The seas will recognize our faces, our faces of contemplation

Hold your head in your hands, we chase the shade, and hide our faces from the sun
Hold your head in your hands, we taste the same, the flesh upon our bones bleeds red

Follow the moons like astronauts
Follow the leaves that make you there
Follow the birds that know their way back
Shadows of spirits dance on the walls
Where the river used to flow
