“Clean” directed by Mike Truehart / https://www.instagram.com/mike.truehart

Reading, Pennsylvania’s Rivers Of Nihil have never fit neatly into a box, but with 2018’s Where Owls Know My Name, they transcended all labels applied to them. Returning in 2021 with The Work, they have forged further into new territory, delivering an album that is as cerebral as it is visceral, and that covers a staggering sonic range, definitively placing them in a category of their own.

LYRICS:
Music: Uttley
Lyrics: Biggs

I want your money, your time.
I want your patience and your pride
I’m a restless innovator
And I’m working over time
So Heaven help me
(heaven help me)
And the dollar defend me
(dollar defend me)

There is nothing you can sell me
that I ain’t got now
I can still do the work
But it gets harder, I can tell ‘ya

It ain’t perfect but it’s what we got
Is it enough for you?

Now I live among this filth
And I’m richer for it still

The rushing
And reeling
But now she’s coming home to me
The rushing
And reeling
And she’ll be perfect and so clean

Reveling
In this filth

This stain

Reveling
In this filth

Circle the drain

Circling

Heaven help
Clean this mess
Heaven help

We’ll never be clean again

Cold
A constant- steady breath
Clean- ‘til there’s nothing left
In sorrow
And shame
I whisper out a name
This anger makes it’s claim
We’ll never be clean again

Yeah we’ll never be clean
Yeah we’ll never be clean again

The rushing
And reeling
She can’t believe this feeling
We’re weightless
And tasteless
This god’s not what she made us

But now she’s coming home to me
And she’ll be perfect and so clean

Reveling
In this filth

This stain

Reveling
In this filth

Circle the drain

Circling

Heaven help
Clean this mess
Heaven help

We’ll never be clean again
