Good Charlotte – The River lyrics

(Feat M Shadows & Synyster Gates from Avenged Sevenfold)

[Joel]
As I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of la
The footsteps that were next to me
Have gone their separate ways
I've seen enough now
To know that beautiful things
Don't always stay that way
I've done enough now
To know this beautiful place
Isn't everything they say

I heard, that evil comes disguised
Like the city of angels
I'm walking towards the light

Baptized in the river
I've seen a vision of my life
And I wanna be delivered
In the city was a sinner
I've done a lot of things wrong
But I swear I'm a believer
Like the prodigal son
I was out on my own
Now I'm trying to find my way back home
Baptized in the river
I'm delivered
I'm delivered

[M. Shadows]
You're from a small town
You're gonna grow up fast
Underneath these lights
Back down in Hollywood
On the boulevard
The dead comes back to life

To the praying Mother
And the worried Father
Let your children go
If they come back
They'll come home stronger
And if they don't
You'll know

[Joel]
They say, that evil comes disguised
Like the city of angels
I'm walking towards the light

Baptized in the river
I've seen a vision of my life
And I wanna be delivered
In the city was a sinner
I've done a lot of things wrong
But I swear I'm a believer
Like the prodigal son
I was out on my own
Now I'm trying to find my way back home
Baptized in the river
I'm delivered
I'm delivered

Baptized in the river
(On my own)
Baptized in the river
(On my own)
I wanna be delivered
(On my own, on my own)

(Solo: Synyster Gates)

Baptized in the river
(On my own)
I wanna be delivered [x3]

I confess I'm a sinner
I've seen a vision of my life
And I wanna be delivered

    The first time I heard "The River" I got excited because it was screaming Biblical stories (prodigal son, baptising, sinner, delivered). I just never thought that gc were a religious band. I think it means that Madden realises that this Earth is a cesspool of evil and after experiencing rebellion towards God, he realises going in God's way is better, so he wants to be repent (be delivered). But I think people will automatically get what gc are saying. I love that they are doing this in the public pop business.
