Lyrics

I have no right yet here I am, stakes and mallet in my hand
Roll up my pant legs, remove my shoes, attempt to lay my claim to this land
Below the high tide line, to keep the kids at bay, I drive my stakes into the sand
I wrap the twine around, weave it between the stakes, to form a barrier - this is my stand
I come again, again, and again - my stakes are swept away
I come again, again, and again - nothing ever stays
I come again, again, and again - I am swept away
I sit and watch the tide come in, I shake my head as it recedes
As one by one my stakes disappear, they drift away among the reeds
I often wonder about the path they take, should I follow where it leads
What would I find there among the rushes something to finally fulfill my needs
I come again, again, and again - my stakes are swept away
I come again, again, and again - nothing ever stays
I come again, again, and again - I am swept away
No one owns this land below the high tide line
This daily flooded land will not support my sign
Or this line drawn in the sand
I come again, again, and again - my stakes are swept away
I come again, again, and again - nothing ever stays
I come again, again, and again - I am swept away
