Some angel called
That I've answered before
It lives in my walls

And it's under the floor
If this was meant for me why does it hurt so much
And if you're not made for me then why did we fall in love
A knock at my door
I thought I was alone
Unaware of what I thought I needed
I dropped like a stone
If I'm not mistaken then I was the last to know
And if you return for me I'd never want for more
You're dislocated, don't be like that
And you smile when you drive in, like you're never coming back
So hold my body, yeah hold my breath
See your face when I black out, I'm never coming back
Fear of the water x2
You're dislocated, don't be like that
And you smile when you drive in, like you're never coming back
So hold my body, yeah hold my breath
See your face when I black out, I'm never coming back
(Fear of the water x2)
You're dislocated, don't be like that
And you smile when you drive in, like you're never coming back
So hold my body, yeah hold my breath
See your face when I black out, I'm never coming back

Fear of the water x2

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song... is fairly straight forward. The singer is agonizing over a break up. The singer cannot seem to accept the truth of it, they are still deeply in love- yet the other individual is not. The person the singer loves is ending the relationship and they are detached. The singer is hurt by the other person's positive demeanor when they interact, it's a foretelling body language that implies the break up's finality... the lover smiling after a break up is never coming back. The singer is in anguish.
    This is a painful song for me, and anyone else who has been in this situation may read into the song the same way. Hits a it too close to home for me to listen to without tears, but it is a beautiful song never the less.

    General CommentThe correct lyric is actually:

    "And you smile when you dive in, like you're never coming back"

    This is important. He is singing of his departing lover's smile as they dive into the water-- but his own paralyzing fear of it.

    I personally interpret the song to be about a person who has been broken up with. He's still deeply in love and longing for them to come back. He didn't see the break up coming, he was "the last to know." Now his love is "dislocated" and they are happily diving back into the water to move on. The singer is in agony. He sees his ex-lover's face when he closes his eyes. He wishes for them to hold him. He is grieving, alone, heartbroken, and scared.
