lyrics

wings of solid gold
made skin and bone
you know it's all in the mind

so, so now you know
the way it goes
it's not a zero sum

row the boat row the boat
row the boat ashore

bring your boughs of birch
and thresh them clean
with money, salt and ash

carve your vessel wide
embrace the tide
and let the trade winds blow

row the boat row the boat
row the boat ashore

you, you touch my home
i'll beat you down
and let your blood run cold

prophets false and kings
of mystic things
i've left their bones for the wolves

row the boat row the boat
row the boat ashore

and what of the glory
what of the rapturous light
was it worth all the heartbreak
did you fight the good fight

did the good go without you
did you wake up alone
with no one to hold you
and no one to phone

and you put all your trust in
a charlatan's web
and he left you to the fires
till your faith starts to ebb

cause you bet all my money
on a talisman's kiss
now you're left in the end-days
with the dregs and the piss

row the boat row the boat
row the boat ashore
