Lyrics:

One thousand years or maybe more,
before the oceans rose and covered every shore.
We carved our names into the banks of the Ohio.
Immortal river flows, almost forever.

And if the future comes,
Will you remember us?

The clouds were a dinosaur,
and the moon it was its eye.
And as it waltzed across,
devoured up the sky.
The city lights were only
stars hanging in the night.
And one by one, they flickered out,
and died.

And if the future comes,
Will you remember us?

And when the time is right,
all ancient architecture and city lights.
And every monument and totem turns to dust,
yea, so will I.
And though I know the time is right,
Im still petrified.

And if the future comes,
Will you remember us?

One thousand years
or maybe more.
After the seas recede
revealing every shore.
And when our children dig,
Let the fossil record show.
Our names carved in the banks
Of the Ohio.
