Pissing In A River

This song is by Patti Smith and appears on the album Radio Ethiopia (1976).

Pissing in a river, watching it rise
Tattoo fingers shy away from me
Voices, voices mesmerize
Voices, voices beckoning sea

Come come come come back come back
Come back come back come back

Spoke of a wheel, tip of a spoon
Mouth of a cave, I'm a slave, I'm free
When are you coming? Hope you come soon
Fingers, fingers encircling thee

Come (back) come (take me back) come (back)
Come come come (back) come come (take me back) come come come (back)
Come for me oh

My bowels are empty, excreting your soul
What more can I give you? Baby, I don't know
What more can I give you to make this thing grow?
Don't turn your back now, I'm talking to you

Should I pursue a path so twisted?
Should I crawl defeated and gifted?
Should I grow the length of the river
The royal, the throne, the cry me river

Everything I've done, I done for you
Oh I give my life for you
Every move I made I moved to you
And I came like a magnet for you now

What about it? You're gonna leave me
What about it? You don't need me
What about it? I can't live without you
What about it? I never doubted you

(Take it back) What about it?
(Take it back) What about it?
(Take it back) What about it?
(Take it back) What about it?

(Take it back!) Should I pursue
(Take it back!) A path so twisted?
(Take it back!) Should I crawl
(Take it back!) Defeated and gifted?
(Take it back!) Should I quit the length of the river?
(Ahhhh!) The royal, the throne, the cry me river

What about it?
What about it?
What about it?
Oh, I'm pissing in a river
