I want the ocean to have my back

Rockport, Maine

Malcolm Brooks hikes to the ocean believing that the waves will match his own stormy mood. But the seas are calm and seem not to care.

Lyrics

I climb over the rocks
Up the cliff on the hill
I cry to the ocean, save me
But the ocean’s almost still

I want the ocean to have my back
And drown my enemies
I want the ocean to have my back
But the little waves just laugh at me

They don’t smash against the rocks
They don’t roll and reel
They don’t say “I’ll drown your troubles.”
“I feel what you feel.”

I want the ocean to have my back
And drown my enemies
I want the ocean to have my back
But the little waves just laugh at me

They don’t smash against the shore
What kind of answer is that?
What kind of power is that?
They just come and go
So low, flat and slow

I want the ocean to have my back
And drown my enemies
I want the ocean to have my back
But the little waves just laugh at me

I want the ocean to have my back
With high winds, raging seas
I want the ocean to have my back
And drown my enemies
