The Incoming Tide

What’s in the water that reddens the foam?
Only a boy who lost family and home
Golden our hands and the ocean is wide
Turn away, turn from the incoming tide

What’s in the water, the blood stinking water?
Somebody’s mother, or somebody’s daughter
Golden our hands and the ocean is wide
Turn away, turn from the incoming tide

What’s in the water that darkens the shore
Thousands on thousands who cry out no more
Golden our hands, oh, our gods are so kind
To give us this much and to keep us so blind.
