If when running from the flood
It overtakes you.
Crushed by slow waterfalls and such
The ocean breaks you.
Let go of everything you know
And love and fear
Let go of everything you know
And disappear.


If you've been rolling with a crowd
Who want to save you
And all you want is to forget
Every speech they gave you.
Let go of everything you know
And love and fear
Let go of everything you know
And disappear.

If you disappear without a trace:
a.)They won't give chase.
b.)No hearts will break.
c.)As some must do.
d.)Take me with you.

    General Commentthe flood - society

    its about how as you try and try to get away from society or parts of society you find them everywhere, you're overtaken. And if and when this happens he gives the perfect advice to just let go live life. Then there's the last line, all the choices fit but the emphasis is on the last one. At least that's what it is to me.
