They said wait for the rising tide - then you’ll see that you’ll be fine But the wave that lifted their ships just left you capsized Hold on tight while you wait for a rescue Treading water is sometimes the best you can do. On the boarded-up windows paint symbols of bold fortitude In colors of hope that tell you to stay strong and true Stay inside while you wait for the breakthrough Treading water is sometimes the best you can do. The lifeboats are leaking, preservers nowhere to be found And the weight of the anchor continues to pull us all down A far-off light - just a glimpse of a rescue Treading water is sometimes the best you can do Hold on tight while you wait for a rescue Treading water is sometimes the best you can do.

about

Like this year's "Connected Heavens" EP, this song was self-recorded and self-mixed while we quarantined during the pandemic. "Treading Water" is specifically about this era, and how difficult it's been for so many people.
