"Reel Me In" as written by Ben Hales and Matthew Hales....
Don't listen to the TV
Don't listen to the radio
Don't let anybody tell you
That this old ship is going down

Black bottom of the ocean
Picked up by an invisible hand
Have a feeling down my insides
And now, the sea, the stars, the sky
The sea, the sea, the sea

Washed over to the waterfall
I got swallowed by the undertow
I twist, I turn, but I know there's only one way out of this
So honey if you're listening
Press your lip to the overflow
Cause I'm just down here praying someone hears my S-O-S
I'm drowning, reel me in

Fly back into the lifeboat
Where did the women and the children go
Are these men my only friends
And we love, we love, we cry, we cry

Out of the boats into the crowds and ooh ho,
Out of the crowds into the sleepy room
Pull the covers up to my chin
And we fall, our eyes, we rise, I fall
We leave it all behind

Washed over to the waterfall
I got swallowed by the undertow
I twist, I turn, but I know there's only one way out of this
So if there's anybody listening
Press your lip to the radio
Cause I'm just down here praying someone hears my SOS
I'm drowning, reel me in, reel me in

Walk back along the gangway
Back to the arms of the ones I love
Guess you guys keep your secrets
Hello, hello, hello

Washed over to the waterfall
I got swallowed by the undertow
I twist, I turn, but I know there's only one way out of this
So if there's anybody listening
Press your lip to the radio
Cause I'm just down here praying someone hears my SOS

Washed over to the waterfall, ooh ho
I twist, I turn, but I know there's only one way out of this
So if there's anybody listening
Press your lip to the radio
Cause I'm just down here praying someone hears my SOS
I'm drowning, reel me in, reel me in

Don't listen to the T-V
Don't listen to the radio

    General CommentI cringe as I write this, because the last thing I want to do is draw parallels between Aqualung and a blockbuster movie...but could this song potentially have links to the movie Titanic? I know it's rather literal, but still follows suit.

    Moreover I'm just interested to see if there are other diehard Matt Hales fans out there. If so, maybe they can tell me where the hell he's gone since last spring's mini-tour. There is no info on the net about him anywhere!!!
