In Their Words: “‘Deep River’ is in the spirit of the old choose-your-endings books from when I was a kid. This guy is left alone in a river town on the banks of the mighty Mississippi and he’s devastated. What does the river tell him to do? Does he grab a kayak and head downstream or does he embrace the bosom of the muddy water forever? Which way does our character go to hear that mighty river roar? I believe the band captured the attitude of this song perfectly. It’s angry at times and desperate at others but always with a resolved determination to leave her memory behind.” — Rick Faris
