Fare thee well
Please don't get into my diving bell

I'm lost at sea
In present company
Mouths are moving like machinery

The pressure drops
My ears begin to pop
The dinner cocktail hour is drifting off

Fare thee well
I'm plummeting the depths of my diving bell

Another sun
Another moon
Another man coulda been
Another tune
He may have even looked a bit like you

Another time
Another place
Another man coulda made the same mistakes
And I can't take the parallels

Fare thee well
No one's gone into my diving bell

All I can give
In my underwater clear
A rush of blood pounding upon my ear drums

A bathroom stall
My admiral's cabin
Water seeping and I fall asleep again

Another day
Another year
Another carousel through
In the deadly other world

Another me
Another you
Another space I can torpedo to
Hidden in the bathroom

Fare thee well
Please don't get into my diving bell

I'm lost at sea
Trailing through these city streets
Beyond the other world is rippling

    General CommentAccording to Tim himself:
    "Certainly the more (most?) surrealist of tracks on the record, it concerns a gentleman getting too tipsy among a group of peers at a bar, only to drift off into a sort of netherworld where he questions the possibility of another self on another planet doing the same thing."
