Lyrics
:

Oh I have waited for you
In the crossfire of isolation
This tension will find release
Sweatstain, confusion

I�m black, get white eyes at night
Where angels and men
Still fear to tread
And no-one�s ever holding back
Stood like a raft in the wind

There is a sea crashing over me
There is a rock
That will it�s ground

The rock, the rock, the rock
Will never let you down
The rock will never stumble
Tumble to the ground
The rock, the rock, the rock
Will never let you down
The rock will never stumble
Tumble to the ground

I know you�re scared and lonely
I see the streets are closing in on you
This 21st century world
Is racing like a ball of confusion
You don�t know who to run from
Or who to turn away from
There�s nothing left for you tonight
You don�t know if you should laugh or cry

There is a sea crashing over me
There is a sea
Turning on me 

The rock, the rock, the rock
Will never let you down
The rock will never stumble
Tumble to the ground
The rock, the rock, the rock
Will never let you down
The rock will never tumble
Stumble to the groun
