"Before The Dive" as written by and Jean-philip Grobler....
Never found an answer, never found a reason
There was no talk back, 'cause you could never take back
Different conversation, little adulation
Took you to the bath-house, we waited at the entrance

I hope that we will never forget
Seeing sinners of the night
I hope that we will never regret
Seeing sinners of the night
'Cause we can not, we can't ever
No we can not, take it back
No

I walk into to the bedroom, waiting for the master
It's simple understanding, I talk you understand me
Oh
I wait till its over, when will it be over

I hope that we will never forget
Seeing sinners of the night
I hope that we will never regret
Seeing sinners of the night
'Cause we can not, we can't ever
No we can not, take it back

Now here we are
Another voice from the afterlife
Who are we now? We know we're alive
We call you out
To discover why we were left behind
The sun creates a different escape while we're still alive

Now we'll go,
And know the answers are with us now
Console yourself, we already cried
Do we know too much?
Are these pieces meant to be side by side?
I held my breath, you close your eyes, before the dive

    Lyric CorrectionJust a correction of the last two paragraphs, I think they go like this..

    Now here we are, another voice from the afterlife.
    Who are we now? We know we’re alive.
    I call you out, its never why we were left behind.
    The sun creates a different escape while we’re still alive.

    Now well go and know the answers are with us now
    Console yourself, we already cried,
    Do we know too much? Are these pieces meant to be side by side?
    I held my breath, you close your eyes, before the dive!

    Song MeaningThe chrous pretty much sums up the meaning of the song with

    "Now here we are, another voice from the afterlife.
    Who are we now? We know we’re alive.
    I call you out, its never why we were left behind..."

    pretty much sealing the deal. Pretty deep lyrics

    General CommentThe song is about a gay couple "sinners of the night" of people that are currently in the closet. The dive is coming out to their community leaving everything they know behind by announcing their love to their community. The beginning of the song was saying: "You will never accept us for the couple we are, and details some of the ridicule and mocking they had faced."
    The actual song is singers reminiscing on a moment of how they felt before they took the dive, hence the title of this song. Additionally, they tried to reconcile with their relevent authorities before the dive because they talk to the master, but they get a denied from him on their love and they choose to come out anyway, leaving everything they know behind for the dive. The song is not about prostitutes I don;t even understand how you could think that the lyrics are like literally not what. The actual video is a statement on that very same oppression between two loves being repressed and having to hide their true selves for issues be they gay or straight and just happened to use a woman to do so. The reason he chose to use a woman was because it kept the spirit of the issue in tact but he avoided it from being simplified as a simple "LGBTQ" rights statement and more of a statement on oppressions of love of all people. Its actually a pretty fuckin kitschy song thinking about it, but I guess I can support like not oppressing people.
