"The story behind the song is the invisible author behind the visible author who gets to stand in for things beyond his power."

lyrics

You must swim cross the river or you drown
Rise up higher each time you're forced down
You must relive the lesson until the day you learn
And you must walk through the fire or burn
You must grow and unfold
In the dark night of the soul
And you must walk through the fire or burn
You must walk on alone
Out of everything you've known
And you must walk through the fire or burn

The grave is a garden that is nourished by the dead
As The moon gives new bodies to the ghosts in your head
They bring you round in circles to the place you began
One life follows another until you understand

There is no way around it no hiding place between
There's no secret chamber where your deeds can't be seen
You rise and you fall like a wave on the sea
Until you surrender on the day that you go free
In that final surrender on the day you go free

You must swim cross the river or you drown
Rise up higher each time you're forced down
You must relive the lesson until the day you learn
And you must walk through the fire or burn
You must grow and unfold
In the dark night of the soul
And you must walk through the fire or burn
You must walk on alone
Out of everything you've known
And you must walk through the fire or burn

The living God's a serpent in the waters of your mind
He appears as the devil for as long as you're blind
Your secret heart is speaking that the opposites are one
When you reach that understanding then your work is done

There's a big wheel of fire that turning in your eyes
It's the agent of desire and your body in disguise
Yes the soul bleeds on forever is it love or love in pain
Is it both of them together or are both of them the same

You must swim cross the river or you drown
Rise up higher each time you're forced down
You must relive the lesson until the day you learn
And you must walk through the fire or burn
You must grow and unfold
In the dark night of the soul
And you must walk through the fire or burn
You must walk on alone
Out of everything you've known
And you must walk through the fire or burn
