In the deepest ocean The bottom of the sea Your eyes They turn me
Why should I stay here? Why should I stay?
I'd be crazy not to follow Follow where you lead Your eyes They turn me
Turn me on to phantom I follow to the edge Of the earth And fall off
Yeah, everybody leaves If they get the chance And this is my chance
I get eaten by the worms And weird fishes Picked over by the worms And weird fishes
Weird fishes Weird fishes
Yeah I, I¡¯ll hit the bottom Hit the bottom and escape Escape
I, I'll hit the bottom Hit the bottom and escape Escape
I think this music is transcendentalist because it says to follow your instinct and not always follow others ('why should I stay' and 'follow where you lead'). Then people might view us as insane and abandon us ('Turn me on to phantom', 'Everybody leaves', 'I get eaten by the worms' and 'picked over by the worms'). 'Hit the bottom and escape' means that we will live ostracized from others. But Ms. Boyd said that my music is related to suicide.

" I get eaten by the worms And weird fishes Picked over by the worms And weird fishes " That part disturbs me. There's escape, there's rotting, there's falling off the edge, and something there reeks of deception. But I see where you interpreted that, as the writer is clearly "speaking to" a person who has misled.
As Kevin said "I get eaten by the worms and weird fishes Picked over by the worms and weird fishes" this part was like the only part that did not make any sense to me. Personally I thought it was talking about society, telling how the singer tought society's view very weird. But after I heard Ms. Boyd saying sounds like suicide it sounded like it was talking about people that have caused to commit suicide or get to point to think seriously about comitting suicide. And personally I think this song is really good explanation of transendentalism. As I read on the lyricks it sounded more like one person fighting against the world, not physical, but in mental way.
