nin - the great below

I have been meaning to put lyrics in my journal, so here is the first song. Songs make me "feel" if they are good enough, and this one makes me almost actually hurt. Thanks, Trent.

"staring at the sea...
will she come?
is there hope for me
after all is said and done
anything at any price
all of this for you
all the spoils of a wasted life
all of this for you...
all the world has closed her eyes
tired faith all worn and thin
for all we could have done
and all that could have been
ocean pulls me close
and whispers in my ear
the destiny i've chose
all becoming clear
the currents have their say
the time is drawing near
washes me away
makes me disappear
and i descend from grace
in arms of undertow
i will take my place
in the great below...
i can still feel you
even so far away..."
