White pearls are cast upon the ground
The drum inside my chest still pounds
Somewhere in this dark ancient sea
"From stars and sunken stone"
A wave reached up like mercury
"You are not alone"
This phosphorous light a mystery
"Hear my voice so deep inside"

Help me
Someone help me
Transparent face
Against the waves

Come rest and sleep here
with the tide
Hear my voice echo your cries
In sandcastles on an endless beach
Let the water dry your tears

Help me
Someone help me
Transparent face
against the waves

So far away won't you come close
Just like me a lonely ghost
A shadow of myself
that only you can see
See me
You can't run, you can't hide
I am a mirror your other side
Look into my eyes

Run from me and you will die

Help me
"I am what you need"
Someone help me
"Here beneath the reef"
Transparent face
"Look into my eyes"
Against the waves
"Here beyond the shore"

Help me..

    My InterpretationI've always taken this as a song about suicide. The troubled, hopeless man is alone by a seashore (Sea is often presented as a metaphor for death). As he struggles to make up his mind, the lady of the water calls him from under the waves and beckons him to join her for an eternity.
