Current grind and scales shine upon a watery way down
Shorelines are far from here but I don’t need them
At all, just our hands and our eyes
As we walked upon the waterline
And how could I have looked away from you
To watch the divers dive
To watch the divers die
If I could just breathe water
I would be one of them and wouldn’t feel so alone
But I was never one for fitting in
Because I know I’m still a world away from home
This abyss, it’s endless
Across sea tops to ocean shores I’m not exactly sure
Where we’re headed, but I could care less
Because I am weightless

    General CommentPretty good lyrics. Can't really figure out exactly what it's about, but I'm guessing it's something like not conforming to the world (sin). Like not trying to fit in even when everyone around you is sinning I guess. That seems to be the obvious, but maybe it goes deeper. The last 3 lines sound to me like he is content in going wherever God leads him, not matter the circumstances.
