lyrics

Mama said it'd be okay
If you mind your own business.
But it seems business is to blame
When we're stuck with all its mess.
People been crying 'bout it so long
That we can no longer hear them.
They just blend in to the endless din
Of the preachin’ of fear, yeah.
They say,
The tide is rising
There's no longer a high ground
No more denying
It's way over my head now
The tide is rising

Oh,

Police driving tanks,
Still they can't lose the shakes
On their itchy trigger finger.
I wonder if they sense
That we can't pay the rent,
While the rich getting richer.
They got to detect
All the thoughts that infect,
When there's barely a flicker.
Because they need to protect
All the wealthy elect,
While the mob's getting thicker.
And
The tide is rising
There's no longer a high ground
No more denying
It's way over my head now
The tide is rising

You can't stop the wheels from turning
Rolling down the highway to our dreams
But when the sign says there's a curve approaching
Make me wonder,
Who's driving this thing?
Can you tell me?
Who is driving?

SOLO

Papa said the ones you can never trust
Are the ones that look so in control
For you ain’t never known war
And you ain’t never known peace:
You only want to know what's comfortable.
The common extortion:
They offer a fortune
To just sell your soul, babe.
But, living your life like a TV show,
You don't even know what's real.

And
The tide is rising
There's no longer a high ground
No more denying
It's way over my head now
The tide is rising

The Tide is Rising

Can you tell me
Who is driving?

Because
The Tide is Rising
