Once you rode a tide, it was always flowing out towards the sky
It was like a dancer who followed your steps
It was like a lover who could take you to the dawn
It was like a history you could throw away

Now the sea is throwing back all the voices who don't want to drown
Every wave is like a soldier who will fade back into the fear
where the soldiers are made
trapped with your first class papers on a lonely dock
where the future is a luxury to mock

You can laugh, you can cry, you can even bitterly grieve
But you can't deny that it's time to leave

your indecision is poison, worse than broken bones or the coffin
your either standing still or your running out
You're like a safety door that's stuck and won't open
for a fire or a summer day
All you do is tire
But you don't have to try - everyone wants to be deceived
But you can't deny that it's time to leave
I swear you want to say goodbye even more than you want to breathe
But you can't deny that it's time to leave

The enemy always lies
Hides like a match in a lump of coal
He won't use his eyes
He hates you for your soul
He hates you for soul..
