What Makes the Grass Grow by the Riverside?

Aren’t you a knight?
You seem out of place.
This new age has got us faded
and we’re running out of space

Take me down to the riverside
to walk in the warm mud.
Lay me down by the water’s side
ankle-deep in love.

Aren’t you a vow?
I seem to know you somehow.
This apathy has got us anyhow
and it’s time that’s running out.

Leave me down at a dive bar’s side
where I can drink you away.
Lay me down in a river’s eye
to dream of my mistakes.

Aren’t you a lie?
But I’ve swollowed up my pride.
There’s no telling me I’m wasted…
Why do I do this all the time?

Lead me down to the taxis side.
Lean me against-car.
Lay me down by the curb’s side–
par for the ER.

Take me down to the riverside
to walk in the warm mud.
Lay me down by the water’s side
ankle-deep in blood.
