Muddy River - Laurie Anderson
Rain keeps pouring down
Houses are cracking. People drown.
Cars are rusting here. A church floats by
Washed in the blood of the lamb.
And all the superhighways have disappeared
One by one. And all the towns and cities and signs
Are underwater now. They're gone.
We're going down by the muddy river
We're walking down by the muddy river
Somebody tell me please
What happened here?
Mud is everywhere.
Fish are swimming in the fields.
Everybody's running around, they're yelling
Is this the end of the known world?
Men and women in their boats
Try to save what they've lost.
They're yelling, It's all gone now.
We're never gonna find it again.
But when the muddy river starts to rise
It covers us all. And when I look into your eyes
Two tiny clocks two crystal balls
We begin again. We try.
We begin again. Down by.
We're going down by the muddy river.
We begin again down by the muddy river.
We're walking down by down by the muddy river.
We're going down by down by the muddy river.
