look to the horizon; out over the bay. something’s approaching i just couldn’t name. over the boardwalk. up onto the beach. climbing so high i fear we may not reach. some say a rising tide will lift all boats alike but our ship is sinking now. dig into the wet earth. bury a chest. everything that you were just a spot on a map with an X. don’t turn away now if you don’t like the view. in the heart of a storm there is no way out but through. we’ll keep ourselves afloat, hang on to what we’ve got til a new wave crashes down.
