Riverside - Lament Lyrics




Where have you wandered, my only child
Why are you not coming back?
Your mother is crying her eyes out
And I in my dreams hear your voice

Father, will you take me away
Father will you take and save me from my fate
Father, will you take me away
Father will you take and save me from my fate

Wanted to go look for you a hundred times
But I couldn't leave her alone
The end of the world ruined our home
Yet didn't destroy our hope

Acid rain is pouring down
On the caravans of shadows
Once they used to be humans
Dying of too much choice
Devoid of trust and empathy
They were passing each other
Now together with raised hands
In tears they call out at the sky

Father, will you take me away
Father will you take and save me from my fate
Father, will you take me away
Father will you take and save me from my fate
...

    Where have you wandered, my only child
    Why are you not coming back? Your mother is crying her eyes out And I in my dreams hear your voice "Father, will you take me away Father will you take and save me from my fate
    Father, will you take me away Father will you take and save me from my fate"
    Wanted to go, look for you a hundred times
    But I couldn't leave her alone The end of the world ruined our home Yet didn't destroy our hope Acid rain is pouring down On the caravans of shadows Once they used to be humans Dying of too much choice Devoid of trust and empathy They were passing each other Now, together with raised hands In tears they call out at the sky
    "Father, will you take me away Father will you take and save me from my fate
    Father, will you take me away Father will you take and save me from... my fate"
    "Father will you take and save me from... my fate"

  34. parapet68

    Uwielbiam zdjęcia w podczerwieni...

  35. LOLA LILALO

    Thanks a lot the InsideOutMusicTV channel for posting this unique song of Riverside and for the info about the RIVERSIDE - Tour 2019! of course i am going to get my tickets !

  36. Aimiliya

    Anyone knows where they filmed this video?

  37. Aimiliya

    Mind blown

  38. Michael Kozakowski

    Well done !!!!!!!!

  39. kram keceram

    they have come a long way and the ride for me has been a big part of my life. I pass this band on all the time. For some reason they are not as well know as they should be BUT I HAVE NO LAMENT as my comments are full of joy.

  40. Joel Pérez

    Beautiful, great rock progressive song. Riverside is the new King Crimson.

  41. Dan Podkovko

    After 5th watching I finally almost see the meaning. Three men walking it's own way. One of them was deaf, another was blind and third was speechless. All of them were followed by ghost (?) and when all of them gathered together all of their diseases were healed and this ghost dissapeared. I didn't quite understand ghost part, but... Is it dedication to Piotr somehow? They became cured after ghost finally released when they found each other. May it meant that they finally released Piotr and leave this part of their lives in past as it should?

  42. Anthony Festa

    Spine chilling.

  43. Azita Manii

    Love......

  44. Larry Teague

    Beautiful work.... awesome tribute.

  45. Bob Oliver

    Great song. Such atmosphere....

  46. Abdel Hamid

    5:20 took me to another universe

  47. Christian Eriksson

    The ending! 🙏💜

  48. WreckReplica

    Wow. Just discovered these guys.

  49. Master Of Puppets

    these guys stink

  50. Milson feitosa chaves

    Lembra muito esse https://youtu.be/86_vnQc1oBE

  51. Barbara Zawadzka

    Jakie to piękne, jestem pod wrażeniem.

  52. Wojtek Misiak

    Dawno nie słyszałem tak dobrej płyty.

  53. mariusz smolak

    Och ten głos ta muzyka - ciary

  54. Sebastien Pruvot

    Wow. Best Polish Prog.

  55. Simon Cooper

    I was worried that, after the death of such an important band member, the new album wouldn't stack up. How wrong was I? It's an awesome album. Yes there are nods to Lunatic Soul, but this is a Riverside album through and through.

  56. Sebastian Szmeiduch

    Piękny i Potężny zarazem Arcydzieło

  57. Ignacio Morales

    Truly awesome band

  58. Darrell Sturby

    Amazing song, amazing album!  Anyone know what acoustic guitar they play to get their sound?

  59. Piotr Wala

    Fantastic !

  60. blueberry917

    Wspanialego udanego sylwestra ☺☺☺☺

  61. Distant Harmonic

    Mariusz hears none. Piotr sees none. Michał speaks none.

  62. Melissa Novic

    I absolutely love this band. Please come to Norway!!:D

  63. Łukasz Sokołowski

    Cała płyta jest cudowna,ten nastrój gdzie po mimo tej ballady czuć moc ,uderzenie i Power. Mam nadzieję że nigdy mi się nie znudzi i będę do niej często powracał.

    Jeszce raz SZACUN

  64. Vincent Eustache

    For everyone liking this song, listen to Anathema, the album Judgement! :) Especially the song Wings of God

  65. jerzy sasiela

    No cóż chyba jeden z najlepszych - dla mnie najlepszy utwór grupy - wielki szacun, słucham od zawsze!!!

  66. DuskyWing

    Daliście czadu!

  67. Viktor

    So awesome!!!

  68. Solrac Chávez

    La banda polaca Riverside es de lo mejor que hay en el rock progresivo en estos días. Y esta mega rola lo demuestra con creces.

  69. Francisco Melo. Melo.

    Best Song. Muito bom friend..

  70. piotr c

    -(_)- /^\

  71. Bartek

    Doesn't it refer to Pink Floyd "Mother"? Father will you take and save me from my fate. . Mama's gonna help build the wall..
    Seems like more than just a coincidence ^^

    Maxence Deschênes

    Might just be a reference to Mother Nature and Father Time. A lot of bands write songs about that concept.

  72. Robert Bielenda

    Według mnie najlepsza płyta Riverside , wokal Mariusza genialny.

    Jas Jagos

    Posluchaj "Second Live Syndrom". Od czasu "Starless" King Crimson nie bylo nic wspanialszego

  73. jelcyk

    To Panska Skała w tle ? Pięknie to wygląda - i przepiękna muzyka. Uwielbiam Riverside !

  74. Rysio Siedlecki

    Niedoceniona grupa światowego formatu

  75. Pasior

    Nie mam slow ...I tak kiedys wszyscy sie spotkamy... Szacunek Panowie za sile, wytrwalosc i milosc. Pawel

  76. Michael Haupt

    Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Riverside is back. With a little more metal than the last releases.

  77. Daniel Hernández

    I didn´t understand the relation between the video and the song
    could someone explain me?

  78. KirvynsC8

    wooo cool yea!

  79. morgoth b

    today in Belgium!!!!

  80. MrSoulful88

    That's a sad one and too symbolic. It left me speechless. One of the best of the album songs.

  81. Piotr Morgun

    Kurna... pomyliłem Was z Anathemą... to komplement :)

  82. Dave Stewart

    Well done.. really brings out the mood of the song.. lament, dispair and loneliness

  83. zabawny _26lord

    Lol xxxxxxdddddd

  84. Philippe Gomez de Mercado

    Vu à Lyon hier, FABULEUX!!! a voir absolument en concert

  85. lessislessie

    Super teledysk, piękny w swej prostocie.

  86. 3rdshiftfornow

    I struggle to put my feelings of this powerful song/video into words.

  87. George DeBono

    lame'nt

  88. El chico del puente

    Espectacular,canción y vídeo.

  89. Alex Perry

    Emotive song i like it

  90. OSKAR PENDYK

  91. Der Antikrist Seelen Mord

    Amazing!!!

  92. Sewi

    Gdzie został nagrany teledysk?

    Robert Nieborak

    Sewi Czechy panska skala

  93. Mark Cezar

    Piosenka jest jak cała płyta genialna. Już dawno nie zachwyciłem się żadną płytą, w morzu wtórności i odgrzewanych kotletów, świeżość jaka bije z albumu wręcz zapiera dech. Piękne sekcje melodyjne, mocne gitary, piękny czysty i melodyjny wokal. Brawo!

    Black Phillip

    Najlepszye jest to, że to jeden z tych albumów które są lepsze za każdym przesłuchaniem.

  94. Dario

    Beautiful song

  95. Hicham EL MAHJOUBY

    thank you Poland.

  96. Sabrina Anderson

    Stunningly beautiful song and video.

  97. Mr Korton

    Would have done a video for Acid Rain or Vale of Tears rather... or as well ;)

  98. Flywheel

    Awsome!!! :D
