The River Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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 nowto 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.
Verse 2
I heard that evil comes disguised
Like a city of angels,
I'm walking towards the light.
Verse 3
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.
Verse 4
(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,
The worried father
Let your children go.
If they come back they'll come home stronger,
And if they don't you'll know.
Verse 5
They say that evil comes disguised
Like a city of angels,
I'm walking towards the light.
Verse 6
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.
Verse 7
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.
Verse 8
I confess I'm a sinner,
I've seen a vision of my life,
And I wanna be delivered.
