wholly and totally brave I swam
under dying filipino light
fighting and furious against the tide
‘cause I lost our keys in the sea
diving deep under coral reef

following treeline on the shore
I stumbled back to the road
left you on the hood of a rented ford
I looked back, it was the last time
I saw you alive

still light follows
the same rules that I do
reflecting off the water
never making it down to the bottom

    General CommentThis one's about a man and a woman who are swimming in the sea at the Philipines, while on vacation.

    the man loses his keys at the bottom, and quickly gives up on diving for them, so he leaves his wife sitting on the rented car so he can goto the road to call a tow truck.

    while he's gone, the wife gets abducted, raped, and murdered--- all because the man didn't continue looking for his keys.
