Monongahela
Handmade river roar
Harden the barricade
The dam will never hold

Turbid beneath
Gunpowder [?]
Darkess is down
For crying out loud

Thoughts of a broken hand
Give me
The Lord's command
Or the prayer of a crazy man

Monongahela
Handmade river roar
Harden the barricade
The dam will never hold

Who can arise
The weight of lies
To lie in the sky
To those who would try

Swear to [drop out]
[Fair when aloud]
[?] sky
[Deeper than night]

Monongahela
Handmade river roar
Harden the barricade
The dam will never hold

Can't be not proud
The line of the star
Prometheus unbound
The power of trying to find [?]

For in the darkness
The bias in the stars
The dark too dark
Who do we think we are
