"Breath Of Water" as written by and Caleb Scofield Adam Mcgrath....
It's time to tell the truth to anyone who cares to know what brought him to this point
Curled up into a ball, his thumbs the only things that could break his fall

Almost out of air, far beyond repair, doomed
The time is wearing thin, the technicolor's gone
See it all now in black and white

So now, please, it's your last drop of air
So now, breathe, and take your very first
Breath of water
Allow yourself this one
Breath of water
Allow yourself this one
Allow yourself this one last breath

He ran away from home, leaving a trace for friends to hunt and find him in the snow
But a scent is not enough, and we're barely sure he's strong enough to survive the cold

Almost out of air, far beyond repair, doomed
The time is wearing thin, the technicolor's gone
See it all now in black and white

So now, please, it's your last drop of air
So now, breathe, and take your very first
Breath of water
Allow yourself this one
Breath of water
Allow yourself this one
Allow yourself this one last breath

I'd rather spare the truth from anyone who cares to know exactly how we found him
But it's time to share the truth with anyone who cares, he goes out too deep alone

So now

Breath of water
Allow yourself this one
Breath of water
Allow yourself this one
Allow yourself this one
Allow yourself this one last breath

Water, breath of water, breath of water, water, water, water, breath of water

    General CommentI really really like this song. I think it's of someone who goes solo, and doesn't come back. "he goes out too deep alone". There's also the hint it's about someone who drowned. When I listen to the lyrics... I don't know if it's a good thing or bad thing, though. Extremely great song, even though it's part of the "soft Cave In"

    General CommentI'd say there's more than a hint that it's about someone who drowned, BEING AS IT'S CALLED BREATH OF WATER.
    I think though, that the whole drowning issue of the song could just as easily be describing what it takes, what goes through a persons head when they do something to harm themselves, believing that they might be able to pull it off and come out okay.
    "allow yourself this one"
    There's something to this song, and it's a really great one.
