Take on the ocean,
Where we belong, like islands in the sun,
I'll stick around,
To be your hero, your tugboat captain.
We could swim out to the end,
We can find our place to hide.
We can slide across the sea
And finally be free.

In this space wide open,
Take my hand to know that I will never let you go.
You are my joy my pride
That keeps my heart alive.
If we fall we won't cry,
In these water mountains we can hide.
There we can close our eyes
And we can be all right.

We can write this story, raise our arms in glory
As we step off the world to slide.
(Find out what you're looking for.)
Waterslide.
(Don't make me... be my guest.)
We can slide.
(Find out what you're looking for.)
Waterslide.
We'll slide across the sea.

We're drawing lines on the water,
You take a swim with the Neptune's daughter.
You want to splash in the sea green planet,
And let the world go, just let the birds go, birds go.
Well don't waste another breath,
Make sure you take time to pass along imagination
Before you're gone
And your life slips away.

Slide.
(Find out what you're looking for.)
Waterslide.
(Don't make me... be my guest.)
We can slide.
(Find out what you're looking for.)
Waterslide.
We'll slide across the sea.

We'll slide across the sea.
We'll slide across the sea.
So write this story with me...

    General CommentThe song is saying you should live life, find out what you want to do in said life, and do it. If you let it pass, it will 'slide' away from you, and you'll lose chances to make life great.

    General Commentmany aquabats songs are somewhat comical, but this one takes a whole nother direction. it's actually really uhhh (i hate using this word) pretty in some parts. it sounds like its about people taking control of their lives and doing what they want, and not wasting their lives.

    General Commentyea this is a rare serious song from the aquabats... i've always thought if he had a kid (which i believe he does) he would play him this. it sounds like a song to his kid.
