Down, down, down, into the cloudy sea
You love me like a car wreck wrapped around a tree
Down, down, down, it's the only way to go
Sometimes it's hard to hold on without letting go

We'll walk in the water 'cause I can hardly breathe
And we'll leave the ones who love us
You're all I ever need
Just sand in the water
Drown next to me

Now, now, now, 'cause the curtain has to close
We take a bow and face the crowd, realize we're all in the show
Now, just now, you can rest your weary eyes
It's only over, what you're living for makes you feel dead alive

Yeah walk in the water 'cause I can hardly breathe
We could leave the ones who love us
You're all I ever need
We'll tell each other lies
That I know we'll both believe
Just sand in the water
Drown next to me

I'm never letting go
Caught in the undertow
Take your love, my heart and soul
Dive down, 'cause this world's both dryin' us all out

We'll walk in the water 'cause I can hardly breathe
We'll leave the ones who love us
You're all I ever need
We'll tell each other lies
That I know we'll both believe
Just sand in the water
Just sand in the water
Just stand in the water
Drown next to me

    General CommentEasily one of the most melancholy and powerful songs i've had the grace of listening to. It reflects on how the world we live in tires us, and how we believe we're only a show for others (but we're not; "We take a bow and face the crowd, realize we're all in the show"). It's about letting go, and letting the waves take you away, come to rest with the one you love most dearly, and if just for one moment, believe that beautiful lie that everything will be ok. The ambience following the main track really sells it.
