Raine Maida

Rising Tide


Pull my shoes on, comb my hair
Grab my bags and I escape
Through a portal in the basement where all those fairytales are made
Magic beans instead of armor
Cats with hats instead of snakes

It's all I need

No false witness or entitlement
No liars and no thieves
Just the sun, the moon, the sky, and the bluest blue you've ever seen
If I'm dreaming please don't wake me
If I'm dead I've made my break from the rising tide of rage

I dug a tunnel to the afterworld where the children lock those gates
So I watched the oceans rising from a rusted fire escape
