Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
The streets of persuasion
Are plated with gold

Your heart's the right place
But you traveled down the wrong road

Like so many before you, the gates open wide
Here come the rising tide


[Verse 2]
Let's go out tonight
There's a mystery underneath the neon light

Before life and the dream collide
Because the truth going to come and cut me open wide
And you can't escape the rising of the tide

[Verse 3]
Keep up your appearance
You're joining the choir
With everybody singing out Hallelujah
The time came for your solo
But there was nowhere to hide
Here come the rising tide

[Verse 4]
And the company you keep
Where they plan your crucifixion as we speak

So baby, till life and the dream collide
There's going to be a mystery underneath those neon lights

If you can't decide for just who's on your side
You and I escape the rising of the tide

[Verse 5]
Can you tell me ??
Or in denial
I was there in the back of the room when you touched the ?

With your pitchfork tongue you lick your lips and lie
We're never going to know how hard you cry
When you petition and your access was denied
Till the venom in your veins is satisfied
Till you suffocate and swallow down your pride
Where you can't escape, can't escape the rising of the tide
