On this soaring path of wetness 
I beg forgiveness 
To the atmosphere I witness 
It’s blowin’ all my troubles down the line 
But they’re never far behind me 
And in fact sometimes they blind me 
But this shadow sits beside me 
And on this route, she’s giving me advice 

We’re on the same boat but 
we’re going nowhere 
and nowhere ain’t no place to ride 
Instead of rowin’ nowhere  
let’s take a leap 
into this river in the sky 

This water runs fast, can’t see the bottom 
The comfort of a boat, man,  
At least we got one
I’m goin’, I’m goin’, to this rivers edge 
Scary if I do, deadly if I can’t 
Doin’ all the wrong things now 
Doin’ all the wrong things now
Flowin’ down the wrong streams now
Bowin’ on the wrong strings now

She told me don’t be scared 
I asked her why 
Sink to the bottom, and you’ll fly! 
Guess that makes sense 
on a river in the sky 
Guess that’s just right
on a river in the sky 
Guess that’s our life...
