about

a song about struggling with depression.
when it got really bad, i developed a compulsion for everything around me (my room, clothes, everything) to be white. it was some sort of comfort blanket.

lyrics

the pressure is overwhelming
and the captain's always screaming
take her down
take her down
the windows are all caving

but we're gonna hit the bed

life is a submarine
you'll get where you want to be
if you know how to survive in the deep blue
see

you can wear all the white you want
if it makes you more confident
we're gonna drown
we're gonna drown
at least you're looking decent

they said it's what's on the inside that counts

just tell them i died in action
that i took ten men out with me
tell them i went out fighting
i don't want to disappoint my family

tell them i died a soldier
screaming GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

just don't tell them i'm curled up in here


in a sinking submarine
