Submerged (Come Up For Air)

This song (framed in nautical symbols and references) is an allegory concerning coming to consciousness, leaving behind people, places and ideas which keep us tied to unconscious behavior and prevent us from rising to clarity. The matchless, DJ Rkod has provided me a sound palette awash with suggestibility. I brought the vocals closer to the front and added a few more harmonies and embellishments to his original remix (from his selection- Submerged:Naoise -


Come up for air
Come up and breathe
You’ve been submerged for centuries

Let Lloyd Bridges rest
Let Bathysphere’s be
Shed air-tanks and masks
Resign them to the foamy sea

Feel the freedom
Clear atmosphere
Step onto dry land
Let’s get out of here

Don’t call Jules Verne
In his Chambered Nautilus
Let giant squid be
20,000 leagues under the sea

Up periscope
Submarines rise
Feel the warm sun
Dry watery eyes

Don’t call Neville Shute
Leave him “On the Beach”
With T.S. Elliot
His mermaids and his peach

If Davy Jones tries to reel you in
Don’t look back
Don’t give in

Come up for air…..Come up and breathe…..
