"Black Waters" as written by and Johannes Mikael Gustaf Eckerstrom John Flip Alfredsson....
I'm gonna pull you down
I'll take you where it hurts
I'm going to wear the crown of the king of tainted unnatural birth
And the sun has failed
It doesn't reach my sky
Every ship that sailed through the void of the surface is sure to survive

I'll never die
Never die

Drown your sorrows in black waters
I'm waiting
Wait forevermore
All in vain
Nobody came
Drown your sorrows in black waters
I'm waiting
Wait forevermore
All in vain
Nobody came

I've fed on you before
And I will feed again
You never knew yourself like I did, girl I tell you, I am your friend
We'll leave the world alone
Two stories underground
I'll never leave this vicious, delicious, precious treasure I've found

Are you afraid to die?
Never die

Drown your sorrows in black waters
I'm waiting
Wait forevermore
All in vain
Nobody came
Drown your sorrows in black waters
I'm waiting
Wait forevermore
All in vain
Nobody came

I tell you who I am
You tell me where it hurts
You can rest assured that your kind was never meant for this world

Drown your sorrows in black waters
I'm waiting
Waiting forevermore
All in vain
Nobody came
Drown your sorrows in black waters
I'm waiting
Wait forevermore
All in vain
Nobody came

    Song MeaningJohannes said that The Pike (narrator of this song) is the ultimate in depression. "He's the voice that keeps us down. But when you're in that bad mental state, it becomes almost a comforting voice."

    As it pertains to the drama playing out in Feathers and Flesh, the Pike just doesn't care. He represents the voice saying that since neither The Owl nor The Eagle is correct that everyone should simply give up, say screw it and drown their sorrows in his black waters.
