Ocean's Rising

The ocean’s waves washed up on shore,
Whirling sand in little pools more and more
Building, building; rising up
Waters you cannot trust.

Ocean being like a sneaking tiger
Hiding in the brushes until you’re useless to fight her
Building, building, will not stop;
Waters you cannot trust.

Powerful currents rushing through
Nothing at all looking as it used to
Rising, coming, building up;
Waters you cannot trust.

Slowing, stopping, but not for long
Waiting until again they’re strong
Still, still; coming soon
Waters you cannot trust

Silent and quiet throughout the town
The destruction zone is all around
Calm, calm; for them, once is never enough;
Waters you cannot trust.

OH and

-"Hiding in the brushes.." I believe you meant to spell bushes, instead of brushes, right?
