The River

As I walk through the valley

of the shadow of LA

The footsteps that were next to me

have gone their separate ways

I’ve seen enough now

to know that beautiful things

don’t always stay that way

I’ve done enough now

to know this beautiful place

isn’t everything they say

I heard that evil comes disguised

Like a city of angels

I’m walking towards the light

Baptized in the river

I’ve seen a vision of my life

And I wanna be delivered

In the city was a sinner

I’ve done a lot of things wrong

But I swear I’m a believer

Like the prodigal son

I was out on my own

Now I’m trying to find my way back home

Baptized in the river

I’m delivered

I’m delivered

[M.Shadows:]

You’re from a small town

You’re gonna grow up fast

underneath these lights

Down in Hollywood

on the boulevard the dead come back to life

To the praying Mother

And the worried Father

Let your children go

If they come back

They’ll come home stronger

And if they don’t you’ll know

They say that evil comes disguised

Like a city of angels

I’m walking towards the light

Baptized in the river

I’ve seen a vision of my life

And I wanna be delivered

In the city was a sinner

I’ve done a lot of things wrong

But I swear I’m a believer

Like the prodigal son

I was out on my own

Now I’m trying to find my way back home

Baptized in the river

I’m delivered

I’m delivered

Baptized in the river (on my own)

Baptized in the river (on my own)

I wanna be delivered

(on my own, on my own)

Baptized in the river (on my own)

I wanna be delivered

Baptized in the river (on my own)

I wanna be delivered

Baptized in the river (on my own)

I wanna be delivered

I confess I’m a sinner

I’ve seen a vision of my life

And I wanna be delivered!
