"Deeper Down" as written by and Pat Sansone Jeff Tweedy....
By the end of the bout
He was punched out
Fists capsized, muscles shouting
Deeper down, he felt the insult of a kiss

Deeper still than we can go
Further out than triremes row
Drowning slow
His memories persist

Out beyond the telescopes prowl
Up above the towers touched up pile
He realized, this mystery is his

Underneath the ocean floor
The part of who we are, we don't explore
I adore the meaninglessness of the this
We can express

By the end of the bout
He was punched out
Fists capsized, muscles shouting
Deeper down, he felt the comfort of a kiss

    General CommentBeautiful.
    I think this song is about the struggle of everyday life which feels meaningless.
    And then the deeper mysterious layers of being human that connect us to the universe.
    And the ability to accept love (the kiss) - the only thing that will comfort us in our pain.
    Beautiful.

    General CommentThis may just be me but I feel theres a real Jesus allusion in the "insult of a kiss" line. A martyr who realizes that "This mystery is his". Idk i see alot of religion in this one. "of this we cant express"
