Lyrics
Take me on the river, lead me to the flat-top mountains
Bring me back into the world and to myself
Let me work with perfect strangers on something called gender issues
I keep some books about that on my shelf


Let us learn to talk together as we're floating on the river
I think somehow we're going back to school
As we break new ground tomorrow may the land absorb some sorrow
May we learn to use its silence as a tool


So let us have our great discussions about the Japanese and Russians
About the problems of this world that are at hand
It's our own souls that are speaking, our own stories that are leaking
And you can't hide long in these here barren lands


Let us have this dance together, it won't last forever
Even the Colorado ends in the southern gulf
May we remember our beloved, still with us or departed
You'll do it for them if you do it for yourself


So let us find our new beginnings, I guess they've always been within us
May we reach the present moment after all
May we see beyond ourselves as we look into each other
And as we read the writing on the canyon walls


Oh take me on that river, lead me to the flat-top mountains
Bring me back into the world and to myself
Let me work with perfect strangers on something called gender issues
I keep some books about that on my shelf
You'll do it for them if you do it for yourself
I keep some books about that on my shelf
