The Man-Eating Tree – Tide Shift lyrics

What are those fangs in your flesh?

Why are those teeth of fear
Gnawing in?

What are those words that you
Wouldn't hurt a fly?
Like the promise of a lower tax and
A higher pay.

Could even
An unbroken wall
Ever keep at bay
This tide on the rise
The river
Behind a breaking wall
The dam that is you.

Where's all the courage of tomorrow?
The courage to take a stand and
Not to break.

I can whisper it to you.
It was spent ahead of time by the
Scare of today.

And floodgates will soon open.
