Time and Tide

With mouths full of metal

We think we are perfect

We’re trying and dying again

With faces of plastic

We think that we’re happy

We’re frozen as time ticks on

Time and tide

Will not wait

We’re loving

Our plastic, our

Paper, our

Glittering gold that bends

Our models are gods

Our tourists climb Everest

An ad on a sacred space

A flag on the moon

Wrappers on mountains

Our world in the throat of a whale

Time and tide

Will not wait

Money is flowing

Like blood from a wound

Clotting, the scab opens again

Trading water for plastic

Oil for blood

Cocktails for fire in the streets

Voices are opening

Mouths are hungering

People are standing up

We’re shouting religions

Terrorists and preachers

Popes and abortions

Two men kissing in the street

We’re marching, we’re peaceful

We’re looting, we’re rioting

we’re screaming and crying

two men dying in the street

Time and tide

Time and tide

Time and tide

Will not wait
