what the tide has swept away

was never really meant to stay

it washes out at end of day

never to return

all those stones were left unturned

the bridges now have all been burned

and as far as i'm concerned

they've all been turned to waste

do you dare to start again

when the day's new tide comes in

or simply try to still defend

your painful misconceptions

it's so sad you have to choose

of things you think are yours to lose

surely your gods are amused

at what you think you've found

truth comes when eyes are open wide

to think it's only on your side

will leave you with a big surprise

and dreams of starting over ...

from what has been discarded.
