lyrics

Deep-Sea Diver

Falling fast under the ocean
Away from everyone
The great black vastness that I‘ve always wanted
Is finally mine for the taking

And all the real world with all of its problems
Don’t even matter while I’m sinking
Now that I’m passed 100 feet
I turn my light on and don’t see

Deep-sea diver is forging ahead
to where no one is looking for
Pressure is building he has trouble breathing in the air
No light, no air

200 feet and my teeth are cold
And I’m finally reaching
Nobody around to know me
Or even to know my name

Nothing sounds in this deep anyway
All silence and doom breeding
I thought I went in to discover
Touched the bottom and be my own lover

Deep-sea diver is floating back to the top
A lonely raft in the sun
Sometimes after too much introspection
You’re left the only one
No light, no love
