V1
Where is the river I was promised
Where is the rain they said would wash my sins away
I've undone everything that I accomplished
And put back every stone I overturned along the way

Bridge
I want my darkness gone
I want my soul set free
I did what I was told
What can you do for me

Cho
Throw the weapon in the water
Watch it go down down down
Bury all the damning evidence
And all the alibis that make no sense
Watch the bubbles reach the surface
And disappear without a trace
Barefoot in dirty water
While dirty rain runs down my face

V2
The salvation they screamed at me
Never stopped me getting singed by the all the flames
All my demons had familiar faces
And all my angels sleep beneath their stones that have no names

Bridge
Where did my childhood go
When I became a man
Is it stuck somewhere
Inside this broken thing I am

Cho
Throw the weapon in the water
Watch it go down down down
Bury all the damning evidence
And all the alibis that make no sense
Watch the bubbles reach the surface
And disappear without a trace
I'm barefoot in dirty water
While dirty rain runs down my face

Bridge
I want my darkness gone
I want my soul set free
I bowed before your throne
So what's in it for me

Cho
Throw the weapon in the water
Watch it go down down down
Bury all the damning evidence
And all the alibis that make no sense
Watch the bubbles reach the surface
And disappear without a trace
I'm barefoot in dirty water
While dirty rain runs down my face

It seems that since you address "you" in your first bridge, the chorus is asking someone or many(if you is plural) to do what's in the chorus.Yet you refer to yourself in the chorus being "barefoot in dirty water" etc. Your apparent symbolisms are to complex(I didn't get them) to make this lyric commercial.

Just Plain Quotes
"Defeatist Pessimists and Rose Colored Glasses Optimists are lonely companions, victims even. Both ideologies imply predestined outcomes, and therefore breed inactivity in its victims. Inaction is the only sure way to lose at anything in life. All positive action guarantees at least a fighting chance." -Brian Austin Whitney
