Track Name: I
we can see those waters rising
the tide we've been calling coming in
black waters crash on our shore
sinking the walls that we've built
walls we built to keep us in
to trap us in this sinking ship
with so very few of us
trying to build that bridge
Track Name: II
broken boards line the rope
on the only exit out
a rickety trembling path
that our blistered feet still doubt

before it traps us in
before the writing on the walls
leaves us all to spin

a place our lovers eyes meet ours
a place beyond our sins
and here our voices will rise above
the suffering we've seen
rise above the sunken walls
that once our lives had been
