Come down with me, into the ocean we explore The bottom of the sea, an octopus's garden at our door Travel through the dark, holding you I've never felt so safe A school of angry sharks, I am not afraid no not afraid The way that things are Is more than comfortable We've travelled so far Its time to go a little further Deeper down we go, until our cares are only left behind Find a treasure trove, diving through the wrecks of sunken hides Listen to the sound, the creaking pressure down upon our joints The bubbles rising slow, disappear without a trace I am happy down here With the peaceful sound of nothing With everything clear I can safely say that I love you Running out of air, this cave we've found will have to be our last Returning to our ship, we slowly rise the light is getting brighter But somethings left down there, can we go I need to know for sure You just shake your head, in my heart is what you were looking for I hold you close You fall into my arms

She had strawberry hair and the greenest of eyes, they drew me closer Pointed this way she turned to the left whistling, I knew what she was thinking She was thinking I want more, oh what for Left me quickly, I followed her home. Her perfume trail kept me holy. Excuse me miss but I saw you there with a longing in your eyes and I thought "we could be something" I could be something Something for you, someone true And I said, I need you to find me true Like a knife through the back of her neck, stopped dead in her tracks As she turned to face me Think you know me by the way that I stare Am I longing for a partner? Or do you just want to be there? And she screamed I want more oh what for Love is just a ladder, I'm starting to fall

Keeping to my beaten track once more This is the road I take, you take yours So I see myself the way I look today Just give it time, all things will change. They will change And I say Hold it Back Just pickin up the slack Look aside as I drive further down the road A rusted broken down truck all burnt out and old Don't follow the signs out here they lead to your end Following a beaten track with me as my only friend And I say Hold it Back Just pickin up the slack

There's an ocean flooding outside of my door and I don't want to be alone The repetition forces me to pick up the phone. I'm not ready to start sleeping I'm drifting further, closer to where you sleep The night is merely intermission. Natures static, a signal to bring relief The night is merely intermission I'm drowning Close my eyes as I patiently wait to disembark. The painting seeping at the edges. The splintered brushes carving history and shaping my heart. Its not over till its over. I feel the cravings are crawling inside my skin The night is merely intermission I need to see you before the day resumes The night is merely intermission I'm drowning
