The Rising Tide

This song is by The Killers and appears on the album Battle Born (2012).

Original video
The streets of persuasion
Are plated with gold
Your heart's in the right place
But you traveled down the wrong road

Like so many before you
The gates open wide
Here come the rising tide
(Rising tide)

Let's go out tonight
There's a mystery underneath the neon light
Before life and the dream collide
'Cause the truth's gonna come and cut me open wide
And you can't escape the rising of the tide

Keep up your appearance
You join in the choir
With everybody singin' out "Glory, Hallelujah!"
(Hallelujah!)

The time came for your solo
But there was nowhere to hide
Here come the rising tide
(Rising tide)

And the company you keep
Well, they plan your crucifixion as we speak
So, baby, till life and the dream collide
There's gonna be a mystery underneath those neon lights

If you can't decipher just who's on your side
You will not escape the rising of the tide

Can you tell me brother, was I deceived or in denial?
I was there in the back of the room when you testified (Ow-ow!)
With your pitchfork tongue, you licked your lips and lied

We're never gonna know how hard you cried
When you petitioned and your access was denied
Till the venom in your veins is satisfied
Till you suffocate and swallow down the pride

Well, you can't escape (You can't escape)
Well, you can't escape (You can't escape)
No, you can't escape the rising of the tide
