Stormy daybreak on the river
Where dreams and thunderheads collide
Fill your bucket up with water
And be prepared to weather the ride
Cloudy-colored tones in your voice
Frighten me - well, I should have known
To let your words flow over me
Like this river over a stone

Your point of view is a part of you
You need me and you push me away
Dichotomy is a part of me
I could swim to shore, but I know I'll stay

Lightning makes you drop your paddle
Jump overboard, and then reappear
Floating in your problems and your
Token millennial fears
Surface tension breaks and rebuilds
Tosses you and pulls you down
And breathing water makes you wonder
Why in the world you're hanging around

This point of view, it's a part of you:
You need me and you need me away
Dichotomy is a part of me
I could swim to shore, but I know I'll stay
That's okay!
