i dug in my heels
in hard, clay dirt
like a man
i stood upright
ready to make my stand
ready to fight

i stumbled and fought
i said, "i can, i can"
so i fought to stand up
erect once again
'til the water came up
turned all to quicksand

as i sank to new lows
i gritted my teeth
i visualized
i quaked at
what might lay beneath

i shook off my fear
i waited for slaughter
i opened my eyes
my heels dug in water

i walked azure waves
i saw a new land
i learned not to fear
i became a new man.
