lyrics

Your nadir's reached again and you are looking back
At all the tailings from your pits shiny and black
Surging pools, absorbing heat
The same mistakes have left you naked, cold, and incomplete

Meanwhile, downriver, where your tailings all do flow
Headed straight to people who love you the most
They head upstream with clothes to comfort you
Catastrophic floods destroy their homes while out of view
And you shake all of the toxins off you
Straight from your skin into the river

Now you want to run away and not look back
But all your actions made that road a poisoned track
People want to forgive you, when you beg to redeem
But where is all the help for people who were harmed downstream?

And you shake all of the toxins off you
Straight from your skin into the river
You get support from engines of redemption
Those who survive you have to fix things on their own

Acceptance and forgiveness
For the ones who poison the river
While everyone downstream has to fix things on their own
...because that is all we know
