Nature, nurture - Heaven & home
Sum of all, and by them, driven
To conquer every mountain shown..
But I've never crossed the river
Braved the forests - braved the stone
Braved the icy winds & fire
Braved & beat them on my own
Yet I'm helpless by the river...
Angel, angel: what have I done?
I've braved the quakes, the wind, the fire
I've conquered Country, crown, and throne
Why can't I cross this river..?
Pay no mind to the battles you've won
It'll take a lot more than rage & muscle
Open your heart & hands my son...
Or you'll never make it over the river
It'll take a lot more than words & guns
A whole lot more than riches and muscle
The hands of many must join as one
And together we'll cross the river..
