Hey now little speedy head, the read on the speedmeter says
you have to go the task in the city
Where people drown and people serve,
Don't be shy, your just deserve is only just light years to go.

Me, my thoughts are flower strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon.
I have got to leave to find my way
Watch the road and memorize this life that pass before my eyes,
nothing is going my way


The ocean is the rivers goal, a need to leave the water knows.
We're closer now than light years to go.

I have got to find the river, bergamot and vetiver
Run through my head and fall away.
Leave the road and memorize this life that pass before my eyes,
nothing is going my way.


There's no one left to take the lead, but I tell you and you can see
We're closer now and light years to go
Pick up here and chase the ride. The river empties to the tide;
Fall into the ocean.

The river to the ocean goes, a fortune for the undertow.
None of this is going my way.
There is nothing left to throw of ginger, lemon, indigo,
Coriander stem and rose of hay.

Strength and courage overrides these privileged and weary eyes of
River poet search naivete.
Pick up here and chase the ride, the river empties to the tide.
All of this is coming your way.
