Chaos caught me in the rain
Tried to explain what it is you did
Told me not to go, but I followed
Wondering eyes don’t ever change
I’m a fool to think they would
The proof’s parked down the road at Lonesome Hollow

Oh I could get lost
Enraged in drink and getting old
But I’ll just call this off
Before this moment steals my soul

I’m heading to the river. Me & my boat
Picking up my sorrow and a fishing pole
Take the river downstream. Throw away the map
I’ll just use the stars to determine where I’m at
And if you want to beg, you can meet me by the bridge
Try to explain what it is you did. What you did.

Dirt and rain hide away the stains
Of lies and love in vain
And the night all but guaranteed your secret
But I got something that you don’t
I got the truth ‘bout this Hollow
And it’s coming with me, you won’t need it

So when you think I’m lost
Enraged in drink and throwing gold
Know I, I won’t get caught
Sometimes you win when you must fold

I’ll be on the river. Me and my boat
Casting out my sorrow with my fishing pole
Take the river downstream. I ain’t got a map
I’m using all the stars, and I’ve been fine with that

Sleeping on the water. I ain’t going to stop
Celebrate the rain and enjoy each water drop
Wake up with the sunrise. Listen to the trees
Try to picture who or what I’m meant to be
And be it on the river. As long as it’ll last
Try all that I can to forget about this
