"Arrival in Nara" as written by and Joe Newman Thomas Green....
As she submarines
The rope loops 'round her feeble feet
Before the dawn
Breaks on her sorry grasp

In a blink and in one motion
Rope constricts
Rips her towards the ocean

She never finds her bearings
Sucking splash into her lungs

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Though I cannot see
I can hear her smile as she sings

And though I cannot see
I can hear her smile as she sings

Oh ooh
Ooh

    General CommentThis is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. What this song is trying to describe is a girl drowning herself. She's slowly sinking with a rope around her ankles, weighing her down. She's being pushed around by the waves, but can't swim back up. At the end she's smiling, because she's happy to leave.
