Another wave slips from the shoreline
Drawing back it releases its hold
Shards of creation soon to be swallowed
As the waters returns and covers it's tracks
Ebb and flow in the waves of salvation
Out of the shadows bubbling with life
Temporary respite from the darkness that follows
When the waters return and cover their tracks
The deluge recedes regaining it's power
Gathering horses for another charge
Breathe hard for a moment, a life in the shallows
'Fore the water's return and covers it's tracks
Drowning now in the waves of damnation
Battle the tides that fall on the shore
Sit for a moment, but the calm is just borrowed
As the waters return and resumes its attacks
