Truth of Tides

lyrics

Counting all the lines on the pages basically
I'm just trying to find the space to see
Cus each and every word has a chance to shape it
To make it a world, build a masterpiece, build a masterpiece
Sitting on the back porch listening
And I can hear a million different pictures
No telling what the difference is
A sister or a brother
Cus the beautiful is yet to be discovered
Cus I'm talking bout a faith in the face of hate
Rays that illuminate a life's work made by the finest
Maybe you've heard of him
But if I've seen further it's by standing on the shoulders of giants

If these tides could talk
Would they tell us that our world is one fire?
Or if these tides could talk
Would they say that we're still frozen?

Just another night in a crowded town
Walking down the sidewalk
Life's best lead colorblind
It always happens slow but we're closer
A door begins to open
Finally we can start to hear the times talk
A king dreamed and I have a friend today
Years spent in pain and I'm here for thanks
Some people see black and white but we see inspired
Cus a bullet can't take away the passion from a fire
Vacant lots and parking spots then malls and shops
Cus we're all for change
But quiet thoughts stay locked in boxes and we remain the same
Will we remain the same?

If these tides could talk
Would they tell us that our world is one fire?
Or if these tides could talk
Would they say that we're still frozen?
If these tides could talk
Would they tell us that our world is one fire?
Or if these tides could talk
Would they say that we're still frozen?
Frozen eh

(MLK speech)
