"Dive Right In" as written by and Adam/phillips Russell....
So here i go
I'll dive right in
Break through the waves
Straight to the ocean floor

And although my hands are shaking
I lie perfectly still
'Cause I'm determined to let myself sink down

And I know I'm buried too far down
To feel the warmth from the sun again

I could wave my arms and swim away
But never reach the shore
But for now I will lay face first in the sand
With the wreckage from ships that lost their way

And I know I'm buried too far down
To feel the warmth from the sun again

And I know I'm buried too far down
To feel the warmth from the sun again

And although my hands are shaking
I lie perfectly still
'Cause I'm determined to let myself sink down

And I know I'm buried too far down
To feel the warmth from the sun again

    General CommentThis is definitly my favorite song on Page Avenue. This song had a few meanings to me

    i think he is having a problem and he is just letting everything happen and he's in too deep and might never solve it because "he's letting himself sink down". the whole song is a metaphor. yup yup.

    General CommentI think its about depression... He's so depressed that he just wants to give up just like other people who have lost their way (the ships) If he wanted to, he could pull himself out of this deep depression but he wouldn't be happy for long, so he decides its time to let the depression take him.

    General CommentIt kind of sounds like suicide aye? Him saying that he will "Never feel the warmth from the sun again", and "And allthough my hands are shaking, I lie perfectly still,
    Cause i'm determined to let myself sink down"... he's scared about doing it, but he knows he has to, so he's determind.
    Or I could just be COMPLETLY wrong and it could be about depression!! lol

    General Commentthis song 2 me is about how life honestly sucks, and how no matter wat we do we all feel it, i think its about a guy giving into that feeling, and just forgetting about trying to save himself, like we all kid ourselves into thinking that its possible, i know i feel like this almost everyday, this song just keeps me thinking why bother, yet i dont do anything, its crazy, i've tried before, and well im still here so i fucked it up. but thsi song is for sure about suicide and depression
