Waking Stream of consciousness On a sleeping Street of dreams
Thoughts Like scattered leaves Slowed in mid-fall Into the streams
Of fast running rivers Of choice and chance And time stops here on the delta While they dance, while they dance
I love the child Who steers this riverboat But lately he's crazy For the deep
And the river seems dreamlike In the daytime And someone keeps thinking In my sleep
Of fast running rivers Of choice and chance And It seems as if time stops here on the delta (Time stops here on the delta) While they dance, while they dance, while they dance, do, do, do

John Day from U.k.I’ve always been struck by the thought provoking phrases “the fast cunning rivers of choice and chance” are so powerful. They summarise so much of life. CSN harmonising at their beautiful best.
Lumpy Mcphoomph from Southern NhIn 1998, as a longtime fan of Croz, and at his invitation, I traveled down to Atlanta to meet him, and enjoy a CPR concert. We chatted for about 15 mins prior to the show, and I asked him if he and the band performed 'Delta'. "You like Delta?" he asked, beaming. "Jeez, David - it's a phenomenal song, and of all your songs, one of my true favorites!" "We'll do it for you" he said. After a couple of great songs, David glanced down at me, sitting directly in front of the stage. "We're gonna do this next tune for a friend who traveled a long way to be here, tonight..." and with that, off they went. I was thoroughly (and I do mean "thoroughly") blown away. Now, anyone who knows anything about Croz knows he can, at times, be an egotistical jerk. He's admitted it numerous times on tape and camera. But make no mistake, he can also be very kind and generous, and for the rest of my life I'll remember his generosity to me that night.
