Shallow Water

Do fish swim up-river
Why do they make it so hard
So hard on themselves
Do they not know
Down-river is the way to go

Aha, but what is down-river
There is an enemy
He will look for you
When you go

When you leave your home
Unfamiliar territory
Your waters become are shallow

Do not be afraid of the enemy
But take a freind where you go

Do not fear the shallow
