THE RIVER IS RISING

​The river is rising higher each day,

It carries us faster, faster away;
Away from the same old situations,
And all of our usual expectations.



The river is louder than ever before,
Listen to the river, listen to the roar;
It tells us to lose our inhibitions,
To dive right in, with tour intuition.



So dip your head in the water,
Keep your heart in the flow,
Don’t drift in the slower quarter;
Swim where the fast ones go.



The river is breaking the banks of the system,
And money's not worth an ounce of wisdom;
Money won't buy the security,
The longed for hope of certainty.



The waters of change are swirling around,
There's no way to find higher ground;
All the lifeboats are full of holes,
We can only swim, as the river rolls.



So dip your head in the water,
Keep your heart in the flow,
Don’t drift in the slower quarter;
Swim where the fast ones go.



There’s no plan to think about,
And there's no way to figure out;
The only chance and our only choice,
Is to listen to our higher, inner voice.



The river is wider the river is deep,
There’s no secret it needs to keep;
It's the river of life, love and destiny,
And it flows to the sea of harmony.



So dip your head in the water,
Keep your heart in the flow,
Don’t drift in the slower quarter;
Swim where the fast ones go.
