When the tide arrives to test your skill
and your only strength is strength of will.

Bellowing roars and the turbulence talks
to a part of a man that we tend to ignore.

The murky merciless ravaging tide
that have come to destroy, to disrupt as we stride.

In the highs of a low, on the cusp of defeat. If you fall would you hide or rise to your feet?

I can speak for me and my brothers alike.
We charge, we scream, we love a good fight.
We welcome the fear, all the hardship dismay because laughers in sight and I'd rather steer blind through the dark of the night, than to stand at the back and be cast to the side.

Beating courage and pride.
Beating courage and life.
Hunger might, it's time I'm strong.
So are these waves but let's see for how long.
