Underneath where nobody finds me

all the brothers are gone

I can see the passing refugees



They are flowing

Nobody saw it get to my head

no, they can’t find me

calling loud in the dark ravine


Oh, I am flowing

Flowing back the village river bed

as the water flows underneath my head

All the brothers have gone back overseas

girlies pass me by

I had the meanest heart you’ve ever seen


Oh I’m flowing

If I could crawl out of this yawning earth

go find Suzy-Boo

we’d smoke gold in the dreamland too


We are flowing

Flowing by my river to the sea

by my mean old spirit in the trees

I turned my face to the sound above

no, they can’t see me

old bones, just food for the trees



Oh, I’m flowing

There was lies and fires in the hills

down the living streets

their smoke blows back my memories



Oh, I’m flowing

Flowing down river to the sea

flowing mean old bones in the stream

If these old bones could ever sail a while

for an extra mile

they’d flow just like the river Nile


They are flowing
