lyrics

Verse
A weightless body drifting
On a red tide far from home
As turquoise turns to black
Gold heart of stone

Fingers of salt spray settle
And rust through iron strong
The chains they lie broken
Gold heart of stone

Prey and sacrifices
The barrel's all but gone
The red tide shifting on
Gold heart of stone

Whispers on the tide
Her cargo washed ashore
The red tide it wants more
Gold heart of stone

Chorus
The red tide it made empires
All built by muscle strong
It watered cane and cotton
And sweetened Europe's tongue

The red tide is broke coast lines
And shattered fragile lives
All leached from land a plenty
A poison on the tide

Verse
A weightless body drifting
On a red tide far from home
As turquoise turns to black
Gold Heart of stone

Greed and power reigning
A poisoned land to see
No air no harvest no
Gold heart of stone

Chorus
The red tide it made empires
All built by muscle strong
It watered cane and cotton
And sweetened Europe's tongue

The red tide is broke coast lines
And shattered fragile lives
All leached from land a plenty
A poison on the tide
