Preparing for the Flood

wake up, you must calm the raging waters
it’s the setting of the sun
I don’t care if it’s superstitious
I’ve already succumbed
to these condemning temptations
all my undoubtable bouts of pride
stop laughing, shoosh, now listen
before we must divide
oh my oh my I am listening
to the weight of the moon
with the water’s rise
as the dark waves hit the stern
your hand lets go of mine
don’t need a sign from heaven
don’t need a miracle to see
I acted so passively clueless
now I know exactly what this means
I can not be walking on the water
when my shadow weighs a ton
and to relieve this weight I must
undo what I have done
now that I’ve seen what is to come
I am preparing for the flood
