"Floating" as written by and Howie Beck....
floating alone you couldn't see the land so you gave in
so you gave in
you dropped your head below until there was no way to swim

you couldn't see the waves and how they'd pull you in
you couldn't see the anger that would come from this

floating along
motionless they found you after dawn
through all those days
no one thought to think that you were barely holding on

you couldn't see the waves and how they pulled you in
you couldn't see the anger that would come from this

hang on to what you've done
all of those days couldn't be so wrong
should the years never come

you couldn't see the waves and how they pulled you in
you couldn't see through darkness that would never end
now floating was the only chance you'd ever miss
you couldn't see the anger that would come from this

    General Commenti could be meant literally, that means going out for a swim and never coming back, or just symbolic for drifting through life and then letting go - anyhow it's quite clear that it's about suicide.

    General Commenti don't think there's ever a case of a literal meaning in songs. like poems, songs are written symbolically. that's why songs are beautiful :)
