Shifting light outlines my battered form
Stranger to the world
Alone in my abandonment

A gaining army of white horses
Stark warning race before the icy front
The deceiving calm betrays all signs
Of impending change

Evening tide, what do you hide?
Damnation or salvation?

As my skin breaks the blackened surface
The cold is rising, yet all embracing
Darkness, erase this lonesome place
From my every existence

An angry sky bares the signs
A distant violence yet to break
The ocean's travelers cry forth across the waves

Lightning cracks across a vast horizon
Reaching out its hands towards an unsuspecting shore

No light to guide
No ties, no ties to bind
Evening tide, what do you hide?
What do you hide?

To the years spent waiting on the winds of change
(This is penance paid
This is my penance paid)
To the morning sun whose warmth never found
This young man's face

Shifting light outlines my battered form
Stranger to the world
Alone

Evening tide, what do you hide?
What do you hide?

Lightning cracks across a vast horizon
Reaching out its hands towards an unsuspecting shore

With a final effort
I strike out across the swells
Seeking only the answers
Maybe horizons hold

With a final effort
I strike out across the swells
Seeking only the answers
Maybe horizons hold

    Song MeaningHe's beginning to feel alone now and really questioning what he is doing.
    "Evening tide, what do you hide? Damnation or Salvation?"
    It's basically a now or never situation from here on the story.
