"Dead In The Water" as written by and Bruce Soord....
One day, the last day, it was beauty to hold,
Take back, I would take back, I would claw back,
What they stole

Hold on just a little bit longer,
Just hold on just a little bit longer,
I hold you ,when you?re dead in the water,
I hold you, when you?re dead in the water.

Cry out, just you cry out,
Will they answer, your call,
Sense of, make some sense of,
Just don?t try me, at all

Hold on just a little bit longer,
Just hold on just a little bit longer,
I hold you ,when you?re dead in the water,
I hold you, when you?re dead in the water.

There is nobody else my love,
There is nobody else my love,
There is no other place, to die,
There is no other place, to die,

Except for my arms?

Except for my arms?

My arms?

Except for my arms?

Except for, except for, except for, my arms,
Except for, except for, except for, my arms,
Except for, except for, except for, my arms,
Except for, except for, except for, my arms

Except for, except for, except for, my arms

    General CommentI think this is one of the most beautiful songs that I have ever heard. I am under the impression that Bruce, the singer of Pineapple Thief lost his son at an early age as in still an infant, so I believe that this song is that Bruce or possible the narrator was waiting for the conception of his/her child and shortly after birth it died. The child is dying, so he says hold on just a little bit longer, poessibly so he can survive for a few more moments. However at the end, the child dies in the arms of the father. This song is terribly sad and also kind of positive, because the child died in his father's loving arms, as an innocent child that couldn't live to be corrupted by the messed up world we live in. Overall, this song is quite complex with all the instrumentation, including effects that sound like a guitar being plugged into an amp and the cord manipulated. It's just a very beautiful song.
