Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.

Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

A storm is coming over here
Nobody will stop me,
I will walk forward, without wavering.
