Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
No relief from the risin' tide
Somethin' in the way of the world has changed
Broken apart and rearranged

And the river's risin'
Rain keeps pourin' down
And the river's risin'
Oh, take me to a higher ground

Not too little and much too late
Courting disaster and tempting fate
Goin' against all natural laws
Putting effect before the cause

And the river's risin'
Rain keeps pourin' down
And the river's risin'
Oh, take me to a higher ground

When will I see the sun shine again?
When will this darkness come to an end?
Watchin' and waitin', the flood waters rise
I can't believe what's before my eyes

And the river's risin'
Rain keeps pourin' down
And the river's risin'
Oh, take me to a higher ground
