Two times in
I've been struck dumb by a voice that
Speaks from deep
Beneath the endless water it's
Twice as clear as heaven
Twice as loud as reason
Deep and rich like silt on a riverbed
Just as never ending
Current's mouth below me
Opens up around me
Suggests and beckons all while swallowing
Surrounds and drowns and wipes me away
But I'm so comfortable, so comfortable
Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up
You're saturating me
How could I let this bring me
Back to my knees?
Third time in
I've been baptized by a voice that
Screams from deep beneath the cold black water it's
Half as high as heaven
Half as clear as reason
Cold and black like silt on the riverbed
Just as never ending
Current's mouth below me
Opens up around me
Suggest and beckons all while swallowing
Surrounds and drowns and wipes me away
But I'm so comfortable, so comfortable
Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up
You're saturating me
How could I let this happen?
Why don't you kill me?
I'm weak and numb and insignificant
How could I let this bring me back to my knees
Euphoria, euphoria, euphoria, euphoria

I'M BACK DOWN, I'm in the undertow
I'm helpless and awake, I'm in the undertow
We die beneath the undertow
There doesn't seem no other way out of the undertow
Euphoria
