"Carry Me Down" as written by Robert James Grey, Stephen James Walker, Michael Frances Conroy, Gary Frances Mcdowell and Richard Ian Brown....
Slipping through the sand and the sand through your fingertips
Silence was the fear and the fear knew me all too well
Waiting at the edge of the sea
Gazing at horizons quite naturally

There's something in the air but I know it can't carry me
You know I won't believe you
You know I won't believe in time for now
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down

The grains of sand which grace the land, warm against the sun
The calming sea holds mystery
Pushing down and down
Riding with the tide
The sun ? me

There's something in the air but I know it can't carry me
You know I won't believe you
You know I won't believe in time for now
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down

Carry me down
Carry me down

Questions left unsaid but instead turn their backs on me
Silence was the key and the sea learned its lesson well
Waiting on the edge of time
The world is on my doorstep

There's something in the air but I know it can't carry me
You know I won't believe you
You know I won't believe in time for now
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down
There's something in the air but I know it can't carry me
You know I won't believe you
You know I won't believe in time for now
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down

There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down
(You know I can't I won't I can't I won't)
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down
(You know I can't believe it)
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down
(You know I can't I won't I can't I won't)
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down
(You know I can't believe it)
There's something in the air but I know it won't carry me down
(You know I can't I won't I can't I won't)

    My InterpretationThis song to me has always struck me as a battle against drugs, overcoming and surmounting it. "There's something in the air but I know IT CAN'T CARRY ME; means the addiction to cocain, the high and the rush, but the realization that the high won't take him through life and that it will crash against the shore like all great 'wave rides' do. Interesting enough, the song uses the concept of a beach and waves. The problems grow as he's ready to have opportunity (The world is on my door step). He gets help and wins the battle..."There's something in the air but I know it WON'T carry me down" If not drugs, then good vs evil or both. This is such a GREAT and under rated song.
