Lyrics

Here’s how we float down the river bailing the boat all the way
oh my brave companions our long ago watertight days
some little god swims under the boat pushing it day and night
our early water it’s long gone out of sight

we never learned all of the theory we did a lot of it wrong
we tried to survive tried to arrive at the end of the song
All over creation the world spins round
the millions ways we make a beautiful sound


I painted some words under the gunnel up by the bow
I painted yes I painted no I painted somehow
And oh my brave companions bailing along with me
words inside your boat no one else can see

some little god under the boat pushing it day and night
oh my brave companions once we were watertight

You learn a lot of the theory trying to get through the song
you learn a lot of what’s right from how you’re doing it wrong
All over creation the world spins round
the millions ways we make a beautiful sound
