This drink is tranquilizing
Just look at us two
Asleep at the beach at Waikiki

So I find it very surprising
He's coming to you
But I am thankful that he
Helped me to see

You say he's not around
Aw, would you please
I've seen you looking down
At me

Have you seen the death horizon
Just there out of view
Way low in the sky beyond the sea

And I can feel that the temperatures rising
But what can ya do

'Cause that death horizon
Gonna pull you right through

You say he's not around
Aw, would you please
I've seen you looking down
At me

Have you seen the death horizon
Just there out of view
Way low in the sky beyond the sea

    General CommentI believe this song might be about the main character realizing their partner is cheating on them, and now he/she is seeking revenge in the form of something called the 'death horizon' (maybe murder?). Maybe Charles was just messing around or being extremely abstract (as usual). I don't really like to overthink lyrics or art for that matter, but this one I got to build a whole story lol.

    1st verse: a couple relaxing at the beach, maybe on a vacation.

    2nd verse: the main character realizes that his partner has someone else 'he's coming to you' / 'I'm thankful that he helped me to see'.

    3rd verse (chorus): the tone seems to be very sarcastic, or calling out on his partner's lies/cynicism.

    4th: the 'death horizon' may be something of a raging feeling coming from above and underneath at the same time.

    5th + 6th: the temperature rising might have to do with this uncontrollable rage. 'but what can you do?' might be the character thinking it is now too late to go back.

    The end.
