The River Speaks

Story Behind The Song

...the river is everywhere at once, at the source and at the estuary, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the rapids, in the sea, in the mountains, everywhere at once, existing only in the present moment, not in the shadow of the past, not in the shadow of the future... ...the river has many many voices, the voice of a king, the voice of a warrior, and of a bull, and of a bird of the night, and of a woman giving birth, and of a sighing man, and a thousand other voices more... ...and if you should succeed in hearing all of the river's ten thousand voices at once, the word it speaks is the holy Om... from the novel Siddharta by Herman Hesse
