"My first single to come out from the Fixion album and a song we always play live too. Jehnny Beth is a good friend of mine and I’m very happy how this song turned out. We met in my studio for two days recording both River In Me and Complicted. A very intense session and very giving. I had just mixed the latest Savages album ‘Adore Life’ and it was during that mixing that we talked about doing something together one day, and it ended up being the two songs."

Lyris: There's a river in me Running to the sea There's a river in me A river when you hold me
I am the rock She is the sea Shaping each other's forms
As time goes by And waves go forth Her face is relaxed Her body Climaxed
Now the river is dry Left me unsatisfied There's no river in me anymore No more kisses on the shore
Feels like loosing my head Footprints deep in the sand As I cast about my options (I see) Close to the shore A diver who descends To the ocean He may come back with my girl Or he may never never return
Feels like loosing a leg Something on which you stand As I cast about my options (I) Become aware I'm the diver who descends To the ocean I may come back with my girl Or I may never never return
Whatever you choose Don't choose to look away Whatever you choose Don't choose to fade away
