The Rising Tide
The Killers Lyrics


The streets of persuasion
Are plated with gold
Your heart's in the right place,
But you travel down the wrong road
Like so many before you
The gates open wide
Here come the rising tide (rising tide)

Let's go out tonight
There's a mystery underneath the neon light
Before life and dreams collide
'Cause the truth's gonna come and cut me open wide
And you can't escape the rising of the tide

Keep up your appearance; you're joining the choir
With everybody singing out "Glory, Hallelujah" (Hallelujah)
The time came for your solo
But there was nowhere to hide
Here come the rising tide (rising tide)

And the company you keep,
Well they plan your crucifixion as we speak
So, baby 'til life and the dream collide
There's gonna be a mystery underneath those neon lights
If you can't decipher just who's on your side
You will not escape the rising of the tide

Can you tell me brother? Was I deceived, or in denial?
I was there, in the back of the room, when you testified

With your pitchfork tongue, you licked your lips and lied
We're never gonna know how hard you cried
When you petitioned and your access was denied
'Til the venom in your veins is satisfied
'Til you suffocate and swallow down the pride

Well you can't escape
(You can't escape)
Yeah, you can't escape
(You can't escape)
No, you can't escape the rising of the tide

"The Rising Tide"
The streets of persuasion
 Are plated with gold
 Your heart's in the right place,
 But you travel down the wrong road
 Like so many before you
 The gates open wide
 Here come the rising tide (rising tide) Let's go out tonight
 There's a mystery underneath the neon light
 Before life and dreams collide
 Cause the truth's gonna come and cut me open wide
 And you can't escape the rising of the tide Keep up your appearance; you're joining the choir
 With everybody singing out "Glory, Hallelujah" (Hallelujah)
 The time came for your solo
 But there was nowhere to hide
 Here come the rising tide (rising tide) And the company you keep,
 Well they plan your crucifixion as we speak
 So, baby 'til life and the dream collide
 There's gonna be a mystery underneath those neon lights
 If you can't decipher just who's on your side
 You will not escape the rising of the tide Can you tell me brother? Was I deceived, or in denial?
 I was there, in the back of the room, when you testified With your pitchfork tongue, you licked your lips and lied
 We're never gonna know how hard you cried
 When you petitioned and your access was denied
 'Til the venom in your veins is satisfied
 'Til you suffocate and swallow down the pride Well you can't escape
 (You can't escape)
 Yeah, you can't escape
 (You can't escape)
 No, you can't escape the rising of the tide

Criminally underrated song

Jasmin Cruz

This song is so underrated. I can't believe this song didn't get to their direct hits album. I have many favorite songs by the killers and the rising tide is for sure in my top 3.
