In the River, In Reverse
Lance Herman
2018

lyrics

The waterfall’s moving upwards, an illusion
Just like bicycle spokes spinning backwards,
its not movement
Chaos to order A column of water
From the whirlpool like an arm
Reaching up to forever
From the mouth
To the source like a prayer To a God

In the river, in reverse
In the river, in reverse

Each bend in the river
is the face of a lover
like a three-legged race
You rely on the other
By now that you’re floating
Alone in the water
There is smoke but no fire
There must be some kind of mirror

The moon has no colour
No light of its own,
pellucid, humble,
reflecting the sun
& now that you’re floating alone in the water
talking in tongues
reaching up to the heavens

From the mouth to the source
like a prayer to a God

In the river, in reverse
In the river, in reverse

You cling to the branch,
With the strength of your grip
But the tide’s too strong & you slip down
the river, in reverse

In the river, in reverse
In the river, in reverse
In the river, in reverse
In the river, in reverse
