"A Fear of Falling Under" as written by Darren Hayes and Justin Shave....
Deep into the water deep into the dark.
Deep into the places stories have to start.
Peel open the layers go in for the kill.
Bite into the onion taste it for the thrill.

I've got a fear of falling under.
Underneath a dream.
A fear of diving too deep.
Deep beneath the seams.
I've got a fear of falling under.
Underneath a spell.
A fear of what the truth sees.
Secrets I will tell.

Reach into a top hat.
Reach in all alone.
Reach in for a rabbit come up with a stone.
Searching for pieces.
Pieces left behind.
Discarded moments in the junkyard of my mind.

I've got a fear of falling under.
Underneath a dream.
A fear of diving too deep.
Deep beneath the seams.
I've got a fear of falling under.
Underneath a spell.
A fear of what the truth sees.
Secrets I will tell.

What came first?
Love, hurt? Love, hurt?
Oh, what came first?

    General CommentI love this song .. its such a stunning cinematic beginning to one of the greatest works of art i have ever heard ! I love how he almost describes how you have to go throw the pain to feel the joy. A fear of falling under.. taking the plunge , scared but curious . The last few lines of the song some it up ! Amazing
