TIME & TIDE
You were born in a storm
In the middle of the sea
You were born under water
Never even started to breathe

Time & Tide
One day this all will be a memory

300 people
caught up in the tide
Displaced on the ocean
and they're drowned by lies

Time & Tide
One day this all will be a memory
They'll write it down as history

Yeah you keep comin' back to this place
Keep searchin but you find not a trace
All those voices that haunt you in the night
You know you've been taken on somebody's ride

And all of this misery
for some bastard's victory

Time & Tide
One day this all will be a memory
Yeah, they'll write it down as history

Born in a storm
Swept out to sea
Born under water
Never started to breathe

Moon will rise again
Sun will shine again

Time & Tide
One day this all will be a memory
One day this all will be a memory

Time & Tide
Time & Tide
Oh the ocean she's mystery
Water holds a memory

Time & Tide
Time & Tide
This all will be a memory
