Where The River Rises, was mainly written for a Melbourne magazine called 'The Lifted Brow', and was released as part of it's 'Fake Bookshelf' edition. It was conceived on a bunk bed in Brooklyn.

lyrics

Even in the wars, I find myself whistling to marching boots
Smile on my hands, coz sleep always wins in the end.
And even when the good times roll
those Kamikaze cyclones are blowing from my restless lips
Should I hold my breath if I know I know…
I’m waiting for one in a million?

Took my pains to the chemical block
Swear they thought I was making it up
But I don’t cry wolf, I’d appreciate
Just a little affection for the love I make

--------------------------------------------------------------
Heart is wrestling my Jekyll's and Hyde’s
I want treasure, a million in prizes.
In love with fatal floors, I need it tonight.
Sure it’s pressure, but pressure makes diamonds WHERE THE RIVER RISES.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Even in the war I find myself whistling to break on through
I never know when to cruise
And time couldn’t owe me more.

Now listen to the creature’s squeal.
When there’s no cash…they cheer on rebellion
Cry for themselves; “My dreams, my sacrifice!!”
…You know you’ve got one in a million?

Took my pains to the chemical block
Swear they thought I was making it up
I don’t cry wolf, I’d appreciate
A little affection for the love I make

--------------------------------------------------------------
I’m just wrestling my Jekyll’s and Hyde’s
I want treasure, a million in prizes.
Dancing fatal floors, it makes me all right.
Sure it’s pressure, but pressure makes diamonds WHERE THE RIVER RISES.
--------------------------------------------------------------
