Looking down into the water
It's hard to make out your face
If our love is drowning, then why
Do I feel so out of place?
Bubbling up to the surface
Are you getting a breath of fresh air?
Forever longing to make you mine
But I can't escape your stare...
Liquid seeps into your lungs
But your eyes look so serene
It's wonderful how the surface ripples
But you're perfect, and I cannot breathe
Forever longing to make you mine
But I can't escape your stare...
Hold me closer, keep me near
My underwater love
Hold me closer, keep me near
I'll never get enough
Touch me from below
I'll never let you go
But I can't escape

    General CommentSeems like a mildly troubled relationship where one might want someone in spite of things pulling them apart at times. When FNM isn't clear, they're very symbolic. Things are very rarely literal in songs like this. I'll expand on this if it doesn't click with you after hearing this POV.

    General CommentI agree with A Staring Elf. "Liquid seeps into your lungs" suggests that this song is about drowning a lover.

    General Commentyah, masturbation and drugs like all the other songs.
    Obviously he's staring into a wishing well and falling over Abe Lincoln's beautiful copper face.
