The truth speaks for itself
Someone cried for help
Of innocence and lies
In a single judge's eye
Chorus:
Was floating on the tide
And a humble sense of pride
That swept across our land
Left lifeless on the sand
It all seemed very simple
We can sing our songs of freedom
Shine a light into the darkness
But the more we try to change things

A brave new rainbow nation
In a sea of expectation
But the wave of solidarity
Is broken on the rocks

Knows exactly what he's missed
Is slowly ceasing to exist
That he has left to give
Of the life he's never lived
Chorus:
Was floating on the tide
And a humble sense of pride
That swept across our land
Left lifeless on the sand
