Artist's Notes

This is a song about someone who is rebelling against the dog-eat-dog harsh world of office politics. He finds his escape by diving underwater and revelling in the freedom afforded in his underwater world.


Lyrics

 

Underwater

 

 

 

(Verse 1)

 

I bristle at the bustle

 

See the muscle of the hustle

 

The strong standing firmly on the weak,

 

They might as well stand in

 

Abattoir lines

 

While the feted carve their slices of the meek.

 

 

 

(Verse 2)

 

At work there?s some kerfuffle

 

Accusations and rebuttals

 

Not long until we see bared teeth,

 

No, I cannot stand in

 

Abattoir lines

 

Don?t want a forty year celebration wreath.

 

 

 

So I di di dive

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

Underwater
Everything?s clearer
Even in the murk,
Underwater
Everything?s freer
No demons lurk

 

 

 

(Bridge)

 

When I'm underwater I pretend
That all the world is my friend

 

The jagged edges that I see

 

Can?t leave their mark on me

 

I glide and somersault

 

Free of judgement and of fault

 

In my perfect wonder-world beneath the sea

 

 

 

So I di di dive

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

Underwater
Everything?s clearer
Even in the murk,
Underwater
Everything?s freer
No demons lurk

 

 

 

(Verse 3)

 

This life can be a tussle

 

Our heart a lonely muscle

 

Sometimes we get in it too deep,

 

No, I?ll never stand in

 

Abattoir lines

 

While ravenous wolves encircle all the sheep

 

 

 

So I di di dive

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

Underwater
Everything?s clearer
Even in the murk,
Underwater
Everything?s freer
No demons lurk
