I knew this river once 
I knew it such a long long time ago 
I knew it's every turn 
I knew that it would show me where to go 

But something up ahead 
Has come before my eyes 
And now I see a turn 
That I don't recognize 

Valence a halo 
The strangest shadow 

What can we trust in now 
What can we know when all we know is gone 
When what I feel is fear 
When fear is real how can I carry on 

But carry on I must 
Or fall into despair 
So touch the lowest point 
And leave a teardrop there 

Valence a halo 
The strangest shadow
