Doc Jazz — Rising Tide lyrics

There’s a new day dawning
Word is on the street
People need no warning
They’re getting on their feet

It’s a fresh uprising
Against hatred and despair
And it’s not surprising
That people start to care

‘Cause the information
Has finally reached their ears
Evil occupation
Has brought their eyes to tears

Can be no accepting
Oppression and despair
Racist domination
Is anything but fair

When children bear the brunt of those wars
There’s only just so much we can take
This time the people will break open those doors
Because it’s not too late

There’s nowhere to hide
Can’t break our stride
We’re coming like a rising tide

Cause justice is near
We no longer fear
We know that freedom will soon be here

From the smouldering ashes
A novel hope respawns
And it’s passion clashes
With all immoral laws

Like a Phoenix rising
From all that’s been destroyed
Fiery eyes despising
The forces you deployed

And its wings unfolding
To rise into the skies
There’ll be no withholding
When he comes down from the heights

Might as well surrender
The reckoning is here
And for all offenders
The penalty is dear

When people face oppression for years
There’s only just so much they can take
This time the masses have abandoned their fears
Because it’s not too late

‘Cause the information
Has finally reached their ears
Evil occupation
Has brought their eyes to tears

Can be no accepting
Oppression and despair
Racist domination
Will no longer be there
