lyrics

Rising Tide
=========
I’m watchin water rising
down the river of denial
I’m watchin water rising
over your smile

I’m watchin water rising
down the river of denial
I’m watchin water rising
over your smile

The tide is lappin’ at your back door,
said you’re gonna wait for
more proof from the press corp

sorry to interrupt your party
the water's up to halfway
but keep sippin’ your latte

I wouldn’t wanna cramp your deathstyle
give a little pig smile
just adjust the temp dial

This scene is melting like a Dali
you're sweating like it’s Bali
the heat hits you like Ali

The mining maggots took the high ground
watching while you meltdown
leave you floating face down

So safe upon a first world throne
drowning third world homes
punching through the ozone

They made a killing institution
selling you solutions
to their own pollution

Don’t wanna upset the cash cow
heat is rising, my how
people drop like flies now,

Insane end-game
Russian roulette you play
I can't let you
sell the whole world away

I’m watchin water rising
down the river of denial
I’m watchin water rising
over your smile

Here comes another death summer
Looks a lot like karma
Hits you like a coma

Ain’t no more ice for your cocktails
Guess it’s time to set sail
off to catch the last whale

Champagne in the moon light
Sipping while the reef dies
Watch it going bone white

We keep living like a tourist
ignorance is poison
denial and hubris

When the wings of the last bee
cease to beat we’ll be
nothing but a memory

So good night, little primate
Guess you sealed your fate
Time to watch the waves break

The boat is leaving, wave it bye bye
Better learn to float
before we hit the high tide

It’s time to sink, swim or bail
you're either hanging on the cross
or you're banging in the nails

Insane end-game
Russian roulette you play
I can't let you
sell the whole world away

I’m watchin water rising
down the river of denial
I’m watchin water rising
over your smile

Air keeps burning
Tide keeps rising
There’s always more bodies
on the horizon
My heart is melting
Your heart is saved
My home is slipping
under the waves


Another bird
Another leaf
Another soul
Another's grief
Another break
in the link
Another one
now extinct

Another heart
Another breath
Another life
Another death
Just fuel
for the fire
to fulfil
our desires
