lyrics

Starting for the door
Pushing back the roaring tide
Falling through the floor
Of a broken trick of pride

Because you've come to see
The waves that break will go on breaking past the day
You've played your final play
With gestures new and strange
You reach to touch the brand new leaves that turn and pall
Between the spring and fall
You read between the lines
You see it all between the moments of each day
What speech can never say

Somewhere outside of time
You'll find the rhyme to strike the chord whose sounded song
Will rend the right from wrong

Stamping at the flames
Of an all-destroying fire
Tamping down the hum
Of an all-enclosing wire

And yet we'll surely last
The river sons and ocean daughters of our hopes
Will keep us off the ropes
With each succeeding wave
Do we grow stronger or more weak than those before
Who struggled to the shore?
