Bees are buzzin' in their honey catacomb 
All the noise seems to call my head a home 
Can't escape the scratchin' 
My blood makes a noise 
It's hard not to play when there are so many toys 
So many toys

Under the water 
The total is more than the sum 
Under the water 
I hear who I'll become

There's a hole inside my head where all the thoughts break out 
Sometimes my flesh is filled with forgetfulnes and doubt 
It's easy to feel separate, no control of the reigns 
Innocence ain't lost it just needs to be maintained 
It needs to be maintained

Beside me are strange fish, moody and dark 
A tapestry of intention that maintains the spark 
And there's a tiny light 
A flicker within 
Forgiveness is the needle that knows how to mend 
It knows how to mend

Under the water 
The total is more than the sum 
Under the water 
I hear who I'll become

(Spoken "Rap") 
I've decided to hear who we will become 
Wanna lay down in the water, go back to where I'm from 
Outer space is just a puzzle of stars 
Music the mechanics of the human heart 
A post that stirs, a shadow that casts 
An insatiable thirst drains a martini glass 
There's no place sacred, no honest reflection 
Our senses made senseless by a lack o' direction 
Monks are great with their fists uncurled 
But they live in a cave, they know nothin' of the world 
I wanna live brave, I wanna love without fear 
But it's hard to navigate when I can't even hear

(Do do do do do do do, 
Do do do do)

Bees are buzzin' in their honey catacomb 
All the noise seems to call my head a home 
Can't escape the scratchin' 
My blood makes a noise 
It's hard not to play when there are so many toys 
There're so many toys

Under the water 
The total is more than the sum 
Under the water 
I hear who I'll become

Under the water 
My flesh is filled with stars 
Under the water 
I hear who we really are

Under the water 
I lay my burdens down, down, down 
Under the water 
All resistance drowns

(Do do do do do do do, Do do do do) 
(Do do do do do do do, Do do do do) 
(Do do do do do do do, Do do do do) 
(Do do do do do do do, Do do do do) 
(Do do do do do do do, Do do do do)

Come on, come down, down, down under go, 
A-go down on and go down under 
Go under the water 
I hear who I'll become

Under the water 
I lay my problems down 
Under the water 
All my resistance drowned
