Story Behind the Song:
"We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and--in spite of True Romance magazines--we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely--at least, not all the time--but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness." Hunter S. Thompson

Lyrics
I was raised - by a river - nearly drowned until I learned to float
I've been swimming upstream - like a salmon boat

Knew that I was a loner - from the very minute I was born
Proudly wear the horn - of a unicorn

CHORUS - If I knew which way to turn I'd surely go
But the moment I was here - I was on my own - all alone

I will leave - by a river - one way or other it will get me home
And it calls to me - as the winds do blow

I will sail - on that river - far as forever and I'll never know
Where the end will be - as the water flows

CHORUS - If I knew which way to turn I'd surely go
But the moment I was here - I was on my own - all alone - all alone.
