Underwater, underwater, underwater
Underwater, underwater, underwater, oh
Underwater, underwater, underwater
Underwater, underwater, underwater, oh

Look both ways when you leave the building
The wrath of millions of thieves lies disguised
While the children of makeshift hills
Let the code of silence repeat sixteen times

When we get delayed
Can we cast a line towards anyone dismayed?
Can we go it alone say, say, say?

Caught me listening to water dripping
From those old lips to a town where its dry
When you leave don't say
That anyone here will be thinking in modern ways
Can we go it alone say, say, say?

Look both ways when you leave the building
The wrath of millions of thieves lies disguised

Underwater, underwater, underwater
Underwater, underwater, underwater, oh
Underwater, underwater, underwater
Underwater, underwater, underwater, oh

Here underwater we're down
Here underwater way down
Here underwater we're down, down

Here underwater we're down
Here underwater way down
Here underwater we're down, down

Here underwater we're down
Here underwater way down
Here underwater we're down, down

Here underwater we're down
Here underwater way down
Here underwater we're down, down

Here underwater we're down
Here underwater way down
Here underwater we're down, down

Here underwater we're down
Here underwater way down
Here underwater we're down, down

    My InterpretationI think it means..

    Be careful as you step out of your comfort zone
    coz there are liars and fake people out there who can hurt you repeatedly
    And you find yourself travelling if possible on your own
    Will you stop and look for people who could be like you?
    Listening to "water dripping" means you are bored being around people who are
    dull, close- minded and old fashioned
    So be careful when you are around these people coz they can only steal the life out of you

    I think the title: underwater means you are holding your breath waiting for something good when you swim back to the surface.
