Aquanaut

Blind like me, blind like me

Dive Aquanaut, tighten your brass-fitted head gear
Dive Aquanaut, ensure that your airways are all clear
Dive Aquanaut, descend ever-darker atmospheres
Dive Aquanaut, to slay for me what I fear most

On the bottom it feeds, on the bottom it feeds
Blind like me

Blind like me, blind like me

Dive Aquanaut, spear me my many-armed reason
Dive Aquanaut, silence the sound of my sirens
Dive Aquanaut, net me my private leviathan
Dive Aquanaut, slay for me what I fear most

On the bottom it feeds, on the bottom it feeds
Blind like me

Dredge me free, I’m losing all bearings down here
All this fear is crushing my tin can body
Reel me in, I’m sinking too deep too quickly
Could it be I am attached to nothing?

Dive Aquanaut, we’ll honor your madness and folly
Dive Aquanaut, salute the still silent waters
Dive Aquanaut, slip a stone-weighted casket
Dive Aquanaut, after you into the sea

On the bottom it feeds, on the bottom it feeds
Blind like me

Blind like me, blind like me
