In the lake
You will find me
Behind your house
Behind your house
And from that lake
I will remind you
Of your promises broken
Your cruel words spoken
My ocean is bluer than the heart you had to break
My sea is deeper than your lake
My sea is deeper than your lake

In the lake
You will find me
Behind your house
Behind your house
And from that lake
I will remind you
Of your promises broken
Your cruel words spoken
My ocean is bluer than the heart you had to break
My sea is deeper than your lake
My sea is deeper than your lake

Take those steps down
Down to the waterside
Drown and hide
How many bodies are buried beneath those rocks
I told you there was one
And now you know whose it is
Mine, mine, mine
Mine, mine, mine
Mine, mine, mine

In the lake
You will find me
Behind your house
Behind your house
And from that lake
I will remind you
Of your promises broken
Your cruel words spoken
My ocean is bluer than the heart you had to break
My sea is deeper than your lake
My ocean is bluer than the heart you had to break
My sea is deeper than your lake
My sea is deeper than your lake
My sea is deeper than the lake behind your house
Behind your house...

    General CommentI kid of thought it was about some relationship gone horribly wrong where the narrator kills herself and the guy comes home to find her corpse floating in his lake

    General CommentI think this song could be a reference to a Gothic poem by Edgar Allen Poe called the lake. After shalott is an allusion to the lady of shalott by Tennyson.


    The Lake
    by Edgar Allan Poe

    In youth's spring, it was my lot
    To haunt of the wide earth a spot
    The which I could not love the less;
    So lovely was the loneliness
    Of a wild lake, with black rock bound.
    And the tall pines that tower'd around.
    But when the night had thrown her pall
    Upon that spot — as upon all,
    And the wind would pass me by
    In its stilly melody,
    My infant spirit would awake
    To the terror of the lone lake.
    Yet that terror was not fright —
    But a tremulous delight,
    And a feeling undefin'd,
    Springing from a darken'd mind.
    Death was in that poison'd wave
    And in its gulf a fitting grave
    For him who thence could solace bring
    To his dark imagining;
    Whose wild'ring thought could even make
    An Eden of that dim lake.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who was murdered by her lover, and then he threw her corpse in the lake to cover up the crime, so she haunts him. I don't know, just a thought.

    General CommentEA once tried to drown herself in the lake behind her ex-boyfriend's house. That's what this song is about.

    General Comment"In the lake
    You will find me"
    (To me it means that part of her still there , still remenber)
    ...
    "And from that lake
    I will remind you
    Of your promises broken
    Your cruel words spoken"
    (That part still because she can't forget , she wanna let him know the mess he made,how she feel)
    ...
    "Behind your house"
    (to me is about the that person ignore her , left her behind and that person did something that anyone knows)
    ...
    "My ocean is bluer than the heart you had to break"
    (Ocean represents all the bad things,suffer,pain,anguish.That is beyond the pain he made her feel)
    ...
    "My sea is deeper than your lake"
    (It means she is deeper , her feelings are deeper , she can truely feel.)
    (Also referring to the line before "ocean" her problems, demons , fears that can drown her and others)
    ...
    "How many bodies are buried beneath those rocks
    I told you there was one
    And now you know whose it is
    Mine, mine, mine"
    (That person killed her emotionally , her dreams , hopes , illusions.And there's only rests of what one day was)

    General CommentPossibly about an ex-relationship to someone. Someone hurted her much, broke her heart, made her promises he couldn't keep, insulted her. She feels down but what he had done to her won't get her down forever, she tells him, that she's now stronger than he could ever think.
    Also I think this comparision with the lake means that what he had done to her may come back to him one day, kind of revenge for his sins. It will be buried, but not forgotten. He will be the loser, not her, because she gained strength through all oft it. She's got an ocean, he's got just a lake.
