The Dive

Steady as she goes.

Uh-oh...oh, no.

Now I don't even know what's going on.

The foundation is crumbling down below

and I've got nothing to show

and however it may seem so improbable.

The timing is optimal.

Are we ready? Are we ready? Here we go!

 

I hold my breath and take the dive.

It's only then that I'll learn to get better.

If I survive, I'd be surprised

and now the voice in my head is telling me

"Don't fight it. Please, just try it.

Why all the lies and disguises that'll get us nowhere?"

I'm hoping this can make things right.

Light as a feather, I'm taking the dive.

 

Captain of the soul.

Row! Go!

The tidal wave'll throw us overboard.

Hanging on to the jagged edge of all we know.

Calamity undertow.

Dragging down 'til we're ragged and emotional

but progress is possible.

Are we ready? Are we ready? Here we go!

 

I hold my breath and take the dive.

It's only then that I'll learn to get better.

If I survive, I'd be surprised 

and now the voice in my head is telling me

"Don't fight it. Please, just try it.

Why all the lies and disguises that'll get us nowhere?" 

I'm hoping this can make things right.

Light as a feather, I'm taking the dive.

Light as a feather, I'm taking the dive.
