lyrics

I was born beside the river
And like the river I've been running since
When summer ends the cold draws thicker
And beneath my head my hands begin to shake
And the lights they shine
Near Christmas time
As I go searching the streets to find my bed
But all the while below my step
My feet they carry the burden of my head

Walk on meet your end
Walk on meet your end

But don't force me down the road alone
And I wonder am I ever getting home

Well I ws born beside the river
And like the river I've been running since
From dusk till dawn my heacy heart
Loses feeling as blood draws from my neck
So tell me God what have I done
To bear this cross which begs my body for death
Lest I regret all my brothers
Then I must dwell within this body of lies


Walk on meet your end
Walk on meet your end

But don't force me down the road alone
And I wonder am I ever getting home
