The sea will wash against the rock
The rock stands strong, the rock is strong
The sea will wash against the rock
But before too long the rock is gone
The wind will blow against the stone
The stone stands strong, the stone is strong
The wind will blow against the stone
But before too long the stone is gone
Patience gentlemen, we move closer every day
Patience gentlemen, the stone will soon give way
Chorus
We are the wave,
We are the flow
We are the wind
And soon the rock must go
We are the wave,
We are the flow
We are the wind
And soon the rock must go
You cannot hold back the tide
The tide must rise the tide must rise
Its the law of earth and skies
The tide will rise, the tide will rise
Its as natural as day to night
As day to night, day to night
As natural as black and white
Black and white, black and white
Patience gentlemen, the flower can grow up through the stone
Patience gentlemen, it's a truth that we have always known
Chorus
We are the wave,
We are the flow
We are the wind
And soon the rock must go
We are the force
We are the fire
We are the move
Moving higher and higher,
We are the force
We are the fire
We are the move
Moving higher and higher
Interlude
We are the wave,
We are the flow
We are the wind
And soon the rock must go
We are the wave,
We are the flow
We are the wind
We are the flow
We are the wave,
We are the flow
We are the wind
And soon the rock must go
We are the wave,
We are the flow
We are the wind
We are the flow
