KEEP ME BY THE ROCK

If there is a reason tell me now

I'm tired of all this skirting around

Scaling along eternal fences

I can't pretend I don't see you 

 

How justifications shift like sand

As you gift the guilt to some other hands

You keep rising up and rising up

 

You see so much water

You forget there is so much land

 

Keep me by the rock

Keep me under endless skies

Even when the river runs dry

Keep me by the rock

Keep me where I belong

Keep me 'til the river runs on

 

You'll have to dissect yourself somehow

All you swallowed needs some checking out

Forget the texts and the swollen lies

There was a time, before time

 

As whispers bustle 'round the streets

I'm inclined to take the rustlin' eucalyptus leaves

As the spinifex keeps rising up and rising up

 

You see so much water

You forget there is so much land

 

Keep me by the rock

Keep me under endless skies

Even when the river runs dry

Keep me by the rock

Keep me where I belong

Keep me 'til the river runs on

Keep me by the rock

Keep me under endless skies

Even when the river runs dry

 

 

Concrete burns just like sand

But it ain't drifting, drifting

Across the land

Somewhere along the great divide

The magpies call marks the early morn

We start rising up and rising up

 

We see so much water

We forget there's so much land

 

Keep me by the rock

Keep me under endless skies

Even when the river runs dry

Keep me by the rock

Keep me where I belong

Keep me 'til the river runs on
