"Flood on the Floor" as written by Megan James, Corin Roddick and Cecil Frena....
She lost her voice down by the river
Screamin' for courage, take oceans and her
She read your mind and called it her terror
Misplacin' her sleep to keep the world nearer

Don't forget the way she pushed the water inside
Waded through the spirits like a flood on the floor
Don't forget, forget, don't forget, forget
Don't forget, forget, don't forget, forget

I'll miss keepin' you
I hope you're sleepin' to

I hope you're
I hope you're

She took your face and called it acquired
Knitted lace out of lashes, battered with ashes
She held her hands and told you to wonder
How you'd fit in the land if the waves held you under

Don't forget the way she pushed the water inside
Waded through the spirits like a flood on the floor
Don't forget, forget, don't forget, forget
Don't forget, forget, don't forget, forget

I'll miss keepin' you
I hope you're sleepin' too

I hope you're
I hope you're

I'll take you out and up in light
I'll bury you good and straight and right
I'll take you out and up in light
I'll bury you good and straight and right
I'll take you out and up in light
I'll bury you good and straight and right
If you ask an answer
Don't forget, forget, don't forget

I hope you're
I hope you're

I hope you're (I hope you're)

Don't forget, forget, don't forget, forget
Don't forget, forget, don't forget, forget

    My InterpretationWhen I started listening to the lyrics in this song, I thought it might be about the film Spirited Away. The main repeated lyric "wading through the spirits like a flood on the floor" is really evocative of this, as the main character visits and works at a bath house for the spirits. "She lost her voice down by the river" ties into an important plot point as well.
