The coast is clear,
The coast is everywhere
I must have reached the end
Of the year of searching
For meanings in meaning..
The coast is clear.

Tides rush in
Are we all being tugged by
The same unit force that tugged me in?
That tucks us in with a kiss on those brows..
It's something felt, but you can't describe
But we always try.
We're always trying.

Tides rush in.
Fools fall for the undertow.

For the chance encounter with something godsend
The gods haven't sent me a thing.


You don't know and you never will.
This epiphany's just a cheap hand job I give myself
I give myself no credit for this.
This bastard attempt at a standardized song..
It's all I've got

After years of searching for meanings in meaning
The coast is clear
Tides rush in
Pull us farther undertow

    General CommentThis could be completely wrong but it's just my take on this complicated song::

    I think that the "tides" represent the fans that are now following his band.

    And the line, "Are we all being tugged by the same unit force that tugged me in?" Seems like he's saying that in the music world, bands thrive off of their fans.

    And at the end, it's almost as though he's questioning whether his work is thriving off of the same inspiration that any other band has. As though he's frustrated about whether his art is actually original or if it's just another fad waiting to be sold.
