Kid Felix – I Am The River lyrics

I was called to attention,
I was stowed in the line,
I was told when to wake and rest
And that time wasn't mine.
I was everyone's victim,
Tho' am holding the gun
At some soft face stranger,
Who hates my father's son.
But who am I?

I've resolved all my reasoning
For finally giving up.
Til' I swallowed down this paper and pen
And spit this song back up.
I been waiting in the background, singing songs to just myself
About the world in which we live in and its deteriorating health.
But who am I?
Who am I?
Who am I?
Who am ooo…

I am the mountain you're running up.
I am a river that flows and floods, that flows and floods.
I am the sky, you are wind and dust,
I'm giving hate, but I wanna love,
I wanna love it all.

I have tried every angle,
Done my job and played my part.
Until they found me in the corner,
Lying with my guilty heart.
Cause I've been calling all your calls,
Wondering if it's fault. Could I be wrong?
Could I?

Repeat chorus…

We've been running since the day we were born.
We learn our lessons or learn to be scorn.
This is my pen: It doesnt write for you now.
The chapter is closed; yes its sad, but true.
We been living everyday, we're alive.
We grow up weak or we learn to survive.
A name's a name and its all just the same.
When the bottom falls out we re gonna find whose to blame.

Repeat chorus…
