Below the Surface

This song was created for Game of Bands round 202 : "The Sea"

Lyrics:

Drifting below the surface
sinking without a purpose
Surroundings getting darker
Losing sight of the harbor
a ticking starts within
all too ready to give in
drowning in mythology
is more than just a novelty

PRE CHORUS
the ticking grows louder
my body ceases drifting
bracing for the shock
my stomach starts constricting

CHORUS
And I explode
like a depth charge
release misgivings
from a tired heart
all color and sound
lay dormant in me
now lights my way
amid the dark sea


Breathe never so deep
rooting fins from feet
Diving beneath the crowd
Shedding long held doubts
embrace my own reflection
what a change in perception
the hidden gifts of seclusion
Reality over an illusion

PRE CHORUS
Feel the familiar ticking
my body ceases drifting
bracing for a shock
has never been so addicting

CHORUS
And I explode
like a depth charge
release misgivings
from a tired heart
all color and sound
lay dormant in me
now lights my way
amid the dark sea
[Exit]
