Lyrics

Spoken words on lonely hills
Where swallows fly and souls to mend
A man is not a man till loneliness subsides

The river stays the same, but we’re just sailing through the night
I’m waiting for the sun, the voices tell me it’s alright

Franklin came from hilltop, nineteen years of age
Signed up for the army just to get a wage
Stationed on an island far away from home
His liberty was stolen, silenced with a gun

The river stays the same
But we’re sailing through
The river stays the same
What more can we do?

With heavy heart and heavy loss, my boots were filled with sand
Like easing in the deadly spring, it's man versus man
The river stays the same, but we’re just sailing through the night
I’m waiting for the sun, the voices tell me that it’s time

Johnny joined the navy just to get away
Boyhood dreams of glory over in a day
“Mother, can you help me?” the fallen hero cries
The corpsman tends his body, looking to the skies

The river stays the same
But we’re sailing through
The river stays the same
What more can we do?

Ira was a loner saw demons in the sand
Came from Arizona in the open land
Heroes don’t come easy, Ira walked the mile
Now the angels tend his body
High above the sky

The river stays the same (The rushing river stays the same)
But we’re sailing through (But we’re just always sailing through)
The river stays the same (The river stays the same)
What more can we do?
