Tide Shift Lyrics

8. Tide Shift
Tide Shift

What are those fangs in your flesh?

Why are those teeth of fear
Gnawing in?

What are those words that you
Wouldn't hurt a fly?
Like the promise of a lower tax and
A higher pay.

Could even
An unbroken wall
Ever keep at bay
This tide on the rise
The river
Behind a breaking wall
The dam that is you.

Where's all the courage of tomorrow?
The courage to take a stand and
Not to break.

I can whisper it to you.
It was spent ahead of time by the
Scare of today.

And floodgates will soon open.
