The Whole Way Down

by Failover



From the perspective of a previous life...


Standing on the edge of somewhere
Nobody wants to be
Night blue horizon water canyon
Yawning under me

Reaching through the railing
Something yearning to be free
It goes down,
To the bottom of the sea.

Locked the door and screaming at me:
Life on our Day One
And a million miles from nowhere
Ocean's morning just begun.

No one wants to map this wreckage
Nobody wants this one
I fall down,
To the bottom, empty....

And you dare try to call me out?
While the others keep calling
Dead at the wheel, folded inside-out
Dead in the water and falling

Riding the whole way down
Riding the whole way down
Ride it the whole way down
Ride it the whole way down

[Final Verse]
Caustic light refracted upwards
Left here and unafraid
I look up,
From the bottom of the sea.
