And his face shown like the sun
Rejoice, rejoice the tide has come

Tide has come to take us all
Tide has come to take us
Tide has come to take us all
Tide has come to take us

Take us away to a better place
Take us away to a better place
Take us away to a better place
Take us away to a better place

When the skin bound to your limbs traces back to home
The sand pulls you back in working through your skull
The sand pulls you back in working through your skull

Tide has come to take us all
Tide has come to take us
Tide has come to take us all
Tide has come to take us

And I will pray and climb to the highest of highs
To get back to the ground again
And oh God to be home again
With back drop hills and florescent lit skies
Burning images into the backs of your eyes
Into the backs of your eyes
Into the backs of your

We're all singled by our desires
That love can fix but life builds walls
We're all singled by our desires
That love can fix but life builds walls

    General CommentThis song is a referrence to Jesus' return, I am certain of it.

    "And his face shown like the sun
    Rejoice, rejoice the tide has come."
    - by this, it means that Jesus returned to Earth, and his presence blocked every possible distraction. Every knee bows at his arrival.
    Christians were celebrating almost as if they were in Heaven already.

    "Tide has come to take us all
    Tide has come to take us."
    -this means that the end has arrived, and nobody can live on Earth (as was once knew) anymore. Everybody will journey to Jesus into Heaven, or they will go to Hell, regretably.

    "Take us away to a better place."
    -He is extremely excited to enter Heaven, perhaps jaded by his Earthly life.

    "When the skin bound to your limbs traces back to home, the sand pulls you back in working through your skull."
    -I am not entirely sure, but this could mean that once he leaves his mortal body, he will inherit a new and spiritual body in Heaven. He may also be saying that his mind will be enlightened with knowledge, and it will be purified.

    "And I will pray and climb to the highest of highs
    To get back to the ground again
    And oh God to be home again
    With back drop hills and florescent lit skies
    Burning images into the backs of your eyes
    Into the backs of your eyes."
    -He is saying that, since he is in heaven, he will be limitlessly able, with a new and divine body. Also, he will be with the LORD for all
    eternity, happy, and without any types of suffering.
    He is talking about how incomprehendably wonderful and beautiful Heaven will be, once the Rapture is complete, and Jesus leads him into the Kingdom of God.

    "We're all singled by our desires
    That love can fix but life builds walls
    We're all singled by our desires
    That love can fix but life builds walls."
    -at the end of the song, he seems to begin discussing something kind of irrelevant to the subject of the song.
    He is saying that Earthly desires can "build walls" or set limits, and we can end up
    hurting ourselves. He goes on to saying that love, which is a referrence to Godly love (Christians believe that God's love is the most pure, beautiful, and perfect love out of all types of love), can fix all things, and knock down all obstacles. Everyone needs God, yet continue to reject him.

    This is how I see the song.
