A NEW WAY



BETWEEN THE ICE AND THE OCEAN

it begins with the sunlight
gleaming crystalline
first a drop forms
finally a stream

between the ice and the ocean

there's a growing, rising tide
forming unseen rivers
threatening to divide

but we've been so busy
conquering, destroying
taking sides
we haven't heard the warning
and now we are
running out of time

between the ice and the ocean
between a secret sleeps

deep within the core
memories remain
we could not tame the land
it claimed us just the same

between the ice and the ocean
between you and me

their manifest is ancient
the ice and the sea
they soothe our fevered planet
when we get too close to heat

but now it's not the sun we fear
no now it's not the sun we fear
oh now it's not the sun we fear

can you hear me?

between the ice and the ocean
