"Going Under" as written by and Logan Kroeber Meric Long....
This takes us by surprise I'm sure
Are you the curse? are you the cure?
Sometimes you know you ask too much
Been getting good at giving up

This ship is going under, going under, going under

Cast off, but hit the ocean floor
Misguided thread, he'll want your pores
I see you there upon a bluff
You disappear a tiny dot

This ship is going under, going under, going under

Misplace my heart, misplace my hope
I'm here without it
Contained at home to all the brave
And bold who found it

To know you still, I hold you in, I hope you know, I only begin
I hope you will, doing it once, I know you will, I've only begun

Give all my things, to all my enemy's are grounded
I make amends, I gave it up, I hope you found it
I see you still, I hold you in, I hope you know, I only begin
To all of them, doing it once, I hope you know, I've only begun

Oh

To all the gold, my hands are up, I hide my plunder
Goodbye to everyone I know, were going under
I see you still, I hold you in, I hope you know, I only begin
To all of them, doing it once, I hope you know, I've only begun

Oh

    General CommentGreat song, here are some small mistakes I think
    second verse:
    **cast off, but hit the ocean floor

    near the end of the song:

    misplaced my heart, misplaced my hope
    i'm here without it
    **contained at home to all the brave
    **and bold who found it

    to know you still, i hold you in, i hold you now, i only begin
    **i hope you will, doing it once, i know you will, i've only begun

    you hold my things, you hold my hand, their knees are grounded
    i make amends, i gave it up, i hope you found it
    i see you still, i hold you in, i hold you now, i only begin
    **to all of them, to doing it once, i hope you know, i've only begun

    oh

    **to all the gold, my hands are up, i hide my plunder
    goodbye to everyone i know, were going under
    i see you still, i hold you in, i hold you now, i only begin
    **to all of them, to doing it once, i hope you know, i've only begun

    oh

    General Commentseems to me about a relationship ending..

    the relationship is being put into question if it's a healthy one
    "this ship is going under" maybe it's a realtionSHIP
    then realization of an ending realtionship

    General CommentHmm. It's all too easy to point to an ending relationship as a possible meaning of this song. There are some elements of the song that show breaking up, but the second part of the song seems he is accepting his death. I can see that the singer is on a sinking ship...obviously. But the singer is accepting his death, yet at the same time he is looking forward to the future, whatever that may be.
