When The Ship Comes In Lyrics
When the winds will stop
And the breeze will cease to be breathin'
Like the stillness in the wind
'Fore the hurricane begins
The hours when the ship comes ind.
And the seas will split
And the ship will hit

In a similar vein this song shares the feelings of Blowing in the Wind and The times they are a changin'. This song is another way of saying that the "powers that be" will have to face the fact that they have been abusing their power and authority for so long and soon things will turn around. All those suffering under their feet welcome the time when things really do change. The powers that be have to face up to the new situation yet still try to hold on to their position. However they will be cast down just like Pharoah and Goliath of old.
