Tides

The storms
Wild, unforgiving
Violent and raging
They swarm
O! The force
The tempest it came
And the tempest it threw us off course

We're high, we're low
We ebb, we flow
For we are the tides

All the alarms and tocsins
Sing of our despair
We to and we fro
To add to the mal de mer
Soon all that meets the eye
Are shipwreck survivors
And passing lost ships in the night

We're high, we're low
We ebb, we flow
For we are the tides

The waves
Weather and weaken
Endlessly etch and engrave
O! Behold
An ashen sea horseman
To sever and scatter our souls

We're high, we're low
We ebb, we flow
For we are the tides

Blast after blast
It ravaged the seas
Fierce lightning did strike
And floodlit the scene
All faith be dispelled
And hope cast aside
For we are
And we are the tides
