Pebble by pebble, sand grain by sand grain
Shore turns to sea, shore turns to ocean
Serpent creates the high tides
To assure all good is floating
Good and righteousness is not intellectual
And the fabric that's good cannot be proven
And so that fabric is washed away
Far from the shore from which it was woven
The shore is a place where persons live
Sowing fabrics that's a tangent of the real one
Not wearable to most of the persons on shore
In fact, it's only wearable to the person of one
One person under an oath
An oath to a serpent, an evil snake
In search for being as powerful as God
And all God's good he'll try to take

[CHORUS:]
[He'll try to take] (2x)
[Good being washed away]
[Love being washed away]

Most of the persons follow the serpent
Coz the serpent preaches "all for self"
But why follow someone in search of something
When you'll get nothing. Serpent's all for self
Some are dumb, some know no better
Some believe there is no Lord
The serpent uses this knowledge to help him
And wash away more of the shore
Serpent knows once shores are gone
There's nothing left but ocean and sea
A few persons trying to save the shore
Some of those persons are A.D.
Saving the shores means saving the faith
The faith that there is a mighty someone
Someone much more mighty that created everyone
Up the ocean without a paddle
Is the fabric of God, the righteous clothing
And you wear non-righteous clothes of the serpent
Naively we keep on serving

[CHORUS:]
[The ocean's owned by the serpent] (4x)
[We can stop being washed away] (6x)

Why we let them wash it away ?
Why are we allowing them to take what's good ?
Why don't we teach our children what's good ?
Why don't we collect and save what is real ?
Look very hard and swim the ocean
We must find what needs to be found
Look all around and find a wise man
To feed us the truth and keep us sound
All of us must swim the seas
Coz our path's been washed away
All of us must swim the seas
Coz our path's been washed away

My only purpose is to swim the seas
Find the truth and spread it around
Give it to the children that know how to listen
So they can pass it after I drown

[We can stop being washed away] (6x)

[Sand grain by sand grain, pebble by pebble]
[we can stop this, we can stop]
[Can you help us ?]
[Will you help us ?]
[Please]
[Help us stop being washed away]
[All of us must swim the sea]
[All of us]
[Hey !]
[Can you help us ? Will you help us ?]
[Oooh please help us]
