"The Sky Under The Sea" as written by and Michael Fuentes Tom Denney....
I still remember the night you tried to kiss me through the window.
I tried to settle for the taste of touching glass over the sound of
answering machines, because I love the way your voice
it says it's gonna get back to me someday.
As I brace my knees you hold me down with your eyes.

Someday I'll drive, close both my eyes.
We'll swim in circles in the blue lights,
it's gonna be the best day of my life.

Oh my God
You'll never be as beautiful without me.
Beauty needs an animal to breathe,
and baby you'll be alright as long as I'm not.
So do that dance in the dark,
sharpen your teeth and bite as hard as you want.

Someday I'll drive, close both my eyes.
We'll swim in circles in the blue lights.
And I just want to fade away into the sky under the sea.
A million kisses underwater as we walk into the ocean.
And this is gonna be the best day of my life,
a celebration of an ending.

And do you really trust your tongue or did you bury the taste?
And is this fantasy real, or is it all home-made?
And did you call me last night just 'cause you couldn't get laid?
Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce the selfish machine.

Do you think you're the only one?
Do you think you're the only one?
Do you think you're the only one afraid of this machine?

Someday I'll drive, close both my eyes.
I'll be your breath if you can be mine.
And I just want to fade away into the sky under the sea.
A million kisses underwater as we walk into the ocean waves.
Do you see me at all under the tall waves?
Do you see me at all?

    General CommentThis song is about admitting, "I am the selfish machine." It's about being selfish with love and taking what you want without regret. The selfish machine refers to the animal inside all of us that no one ever wants to admit is there. I consider all of our evil thoughts and desires that we are ashamed of to be perfectly natural. We are all humans and no one is perfect, despite how morally good someone may think he or she is.

    General Commenti'd make soo much more sense if they said
    "and someday i'll DIVE, close both my eyes..."
    rather than
    "and someday I'll drive, close both my eyes."
    but i don't know!
    it just goes more with the theme of swimming and the ocean and the sea.
    :o

    General CommentWhat I get from this so far is the guy (or Vic if it's personal) wants the girl back, reflects on the better times and wants a bit of romance with her. The problem is, she's manipulative, mean, and uses him a lot.


    And did you call me last night just cause you couldn't get laid?"
    Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce the selfish machine.

    This basically sums up the album and the song. She's selfish, heartless, and all he wants is to be with her.

    General CommentI'm most definitely sure he does not say "And did you call me last night just cause you couldn't get away?" .. he says " couldn't get laid " .. I don't care what the album says, he's lying haha.

    General CommentEasily my favorite song off of the new album.

    I'm hearing, "Do you think YOU'RE the only one", however.

    Someday I'll Drive, close both my eyes,

    Oh, no.
    And this is gonna be the best day.
    A celebration of an ending.
    Come on!

    And do you really trust your tongue or did you bury the taste?
    And is this fantasy real, or is it all home-made?
    And did you call me last night just cause you couldn't get away?
    Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce the selfish machine.

    Do you think you're the only one? (Afraid)
    Do you think you're the only one? (Afriad)
    Do you think you're the only one afraid of this machines

    Someday I'll drive, close both my eyes.
    I'll be your breath if you can't be mine,
    And I just want to fade away into the sky under the sea.
    A million kisses underwater as we walk into the ocean.

    Oh, no.
    Oh, no.
    1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4.
    And do you see me at all under the tall waves
    And do you see me at all.

    My InterpretationKind of thought it was ultimately about suicide BECAUSE of the way she was treating him. He couldn't take it anymore so he kills her and himself. I believe that the peaceful paino and under water sounds at the very end of the song play a big part in indicating thats its suicide drowning.

    General CommentIn my opinion, vic basically talks about how he loves this girl, but she is selfish and only cares about herself and what she wants, but he admits deep down inside, he is also a selfish machine . I love this song, its one of my favorites c:
