In the Rapids

In the rapids we will find our delight

In the rapids shining oh so bright


In the turbulence and overload

Down a long and watery road

Through the turmoil and white spray

We ride on and find our way


Our road is the river in the forest

Hand in hand we do our best

Our love means so very much

And we never loose touch


And in the rapids we will live

In the rapids we will give


A purple haze surrounds our eyes

We pick a watery disguise

And through our ingenuity

We fight for self-sufficiency


And the sun casts its long shadow

Eluding dark from well below

We endeavour to enhance

The waters’ sprightly dance


And in the rapids we will live

In the rapids we will give


Above us birds are flying

And around us leaves are lying

The demon waits outside his lair

But dies from the neon glare


Silence comes down all around

And finds us asleep on the ground

But when the daylight comes

We must continue, carry on


And in the rapids we will live

In the rapids we will give


And in the rapids we will sail away

     In the rapids every night and day
