    Song MeaningI have always interpreted the music of this song like this:

    When he is resurfacing for air he hears the loud noise of the diving crew and the wind etc of our world (loud guitar parts).

    When he dives back down he enters the serene abyss of the ocean. Sound doesn't travel well in water and the quiet parts of the song are when the music most resembles the magical underwater world and you can even imagine the air bubbles floating up. Also the different parts seem to be timed consistently like a diver would do when getting air.

    No matter what your interpretation, this song is such a great adventure for the ears and mind!

    General Comment“For [“Night Diving”], we ended up making this whole plot outline of what’s happening in the song, even though there are no lyrics. That was how we decided on the different movements—when they’d come up, and when they’d come down,” Kensrue says. “It’s the story of this guy diving at night, and the things that he encounters. That was a pretty interesting way to write a song; we definitely had never done anything like that before.”

    General CommentHehe, I was wondering when someone was going to post night diving, wasn't sure how long it would take seeing as there isn't any lyrics in them. Although despite the lack of lyrics, it's a great song as the feel of it is just amazing.

    General CommentI don't know if any of you are Mac users, but if you are I am sure you noticed that the electric piano type instrument in this song is a loop straight out of GarageBand.

    General CommentWe can try and interpret it. Seems like he descends, sees a shark, gets scared, shark goes away, and comes back...then he ascends. That's my simple interpretation of it...

    General Commentsome where around 3:15 you can hear this soft synth-sounding sound... im really leaning toward thinking that those are toned down distorted words of Dustian

    Might be wrong.. but would be cool... a little hidden message with in an instrumental song.

    on another note... this was well produced: the quieting, the speed, the imagery... its all so amazing

    its my favorite from water (even though there are no lyrics)

    agreed. there's definitely something there that's
    beyond the regions of instrumental. it's wonderful.
