lyrics

Struck out for the capital, but couldn't find a high road
borne by a silty of a shoal, saw some people that I know
Though I never had a grudge to hold,
though I never could come in from the cold,
I held out hope to reach an atoll,
to go further afloat to steady my roll

They said you gotta pick & choose your fights,
but it was more like starting them in your own right,
where before we were sustained,
they said you can't be drinking the rain,
cause it's pure as the driven snow
pure as the driven snow
it's as pure as driven snow
but it was driven some while ago

& you know we've got to look out for our own,
even if it means the end of the road,
We know you're gonna go it alone,
but we're gonna build a dam and a series of holes
& try our best to control
the frenzy that's sure to unfold
upheld by a break in the tow
unriven when all is told

It was nothing if it wasn't succinct,
but it may prove much longer than you think,
hearken back to us in your thirst,
let a drop fall in your mirth,
though we've stopped a river to flow,
& covered years of what's come before,
the rocks will make their way to the shore,
& the floods will seethe once more,
pure as the driven snow
fierce as was ever known
inherently in store
to upwell beyond the lore
to chisel by matter of course
pure as the driven snow
with new confines to behold
