"Great Blue Sea" as written by and Joseph A./carroll Secchiaroli....
Fall into the sea
Arms spread, wide into the airborne breeze
Away... Fall Away

The creatures I might meet
They wonder how a man makes such a feat
But I wonder how long I can last if I don't breathe

The world is blue
But it's such a shade that makes you think
It's new to you
A color never seen
I swim into the deep
Beyond the cliffs and coral reef

The rippled silhouettes of ships passing overhead
The rays of the sunlight, fighting for their lives
The silence never told a story like this before
I made my descent

If only I could have written a plea from my watery bed
Begging for air so my lungs are fed
My story at large will be lost in the sea
When a man tells his tale he will need to breathe.

Better make you peace before you breathe it in
Oh my God, I never thought this is how I'd meet my end.
I suppose I have made a big mistake, affording me this fate
Let me live and in the great blue sea I'll spend my final day.

The sun has found its way
Into someone else's day
Such beauty I have seen
Now darkness serene
If I had just one chance I would have
Written a plea from my watery bed
Begging for air so my lungs are fed
My story at large will be lost in the sea
When a man tells his tale he will need to breathe.

    My InterpretationI interpret this song as the singer’s description of death; or more specifically, his prediction (or a possibility) of what he will experience immediately after his death.

    “The sea” represents death and physical lifelessness, while “the rays of sunlight” and everything else on the “surface” represent life. He describes the beautiful things that he sees as he makes his “descent” as completely new and fresh experiences: “a color never seen.” He then wishes that he could communicate this new world back to the “surface” to explain to the living what happens when we die, but realizes this is impossible because he can’t “breathe.”

    “If I had just one chance I would have
    Written a plea from my watery bed
    Begging for air so my lungs are fed
    My story at large will be lost in the sea
    When a man tells his tale he will need to breathe.”

    Thus, the mystery of what happens when we die remains exactly that... mystery.
