"Deep Down" as written by and Dave Richard/sorenson Bassett....
I see the ocean is rising
Let the water wash it all away
Live like there's never tomorrow
When there's no escaping yesterday
Do you ever miss that feeling
Don't pretend like you're the one who's lost
I see the ocean is rising and I keep sinking

Deep down
It's getting hard to breathe now
I'm reaching out to touch you
And I can't feel at all
No I can't feel at all

I watch the waves from underwater
See the ocean push you all the way
Live like there's no today
Do you ever get that feeling
You're the only one who ever plays the cards?
Well I'm just as lost

Deep down
It's getting hard to breathe now
I'm reaching out to touch you
And I can't feel at all
No I can't feel at all
x2

Save yourself, if nothing else
You should save yourself, if nothing else
x2

The ocean rises above me
Will the water help me find my way
Wash it away

Deep down
It's getting hard to breathe now
I'm reaching out to touch you
And I can't feel at all
No I can't feel at all
x2

    General Commentwell they say drowning is the most agonizing thing a person can ever go through
    it seems like 2 people fall apart and the person who was left behind is feeling helpless and emotionless and practically senseless after the whole situation falls apart and he is trying so hard to get his feelings for this person back and just cant.

    and also he is complying with this person to save their self because he feels he is too far gone to be saved.

    but all in all a pretty kick ass song i think
    surprised no one has commented yet
