Tide

The valve that opens closes
the breath that comes recedes
this give and take will lift me
into uncharted seas
and stillness is not static
its rhythm comes and goes
but the mandatory constant
is the forward flow

The tide, the tide
the tide, the tide

And where we’ve always forded
we’ve entered untouched streams
the ocean undoes the mountains
pullin’ at the seams,
yeah pullin’ at the seams
It’s the familiar pulsing
the constant that I crave
to live’s to fall and rise
and overflow the grave
overflow the grave

And Nero burned his city
and Brando rolled his dice
and Peter walked on water once
but not twice…

And where we’ve always forded
we’ve entered untouched streams
the ocean undoes the mountains
pullin’ at the seams,
yeah pullin’ at the seams
It’s the familiar pulsing
the constant that I crave
to live’s to fall and rise
and overflow the grave
overflow the grave

Pullin’ at the seams
Pullin’ at the seams
Pullin’ at the seams
Pullin’ at the seams…
