She never really had a chance on that fateful moonlight night
Sacrificed without a fight a victim of her circumstances

Pull Me Under
from Images and Words (1992)

Information:
Pull Me Under was originally suspected to be based on Shakespeare's Hamlet. The second verse of Pull Me Under has many similarities to Hamlet's famous soliloquy about the conflict in his mind. However, later it was noted that the song was written about similar ideas to Hamlet, but it was based on something else entirely.

There are two guesses as to why Pull Me Under suddenly stops in the middle of music. One says that death is sudden and can take you by surprise and that is what the ending of the song symbolizes. The other hypothesis says that it was inspired by Abbey Road Side A ending and as the melodies are building up, the carpet is pulled out from under you.

The working title for this song was "Oliver's Twist."

Lyrics:

Lost in the sky
Clouds roll by
and I roll with them
Arrows fly
Seas increase
and then fall again

This world is spinning around me
This world is spinning without me
Every day send future to past
Every breath leaves me one less
to my last

Watch the sparrow falling
Gives new meaning to it all
If not today nor yet tomorrow
then some other day

I'll take seven lives for one
And then my only father's son
As sure as I did ever love him
I am not afraid

This world is spinning around me
The whole world keeps
spinning around me
All life is future to past
Every breath leaves me one less
to my last

Pull me under Pull me under
Pull me under I'm not afraid
All that I feel is honor and spite
All I can do is set it right

Dust fills my eyes
Clouds roll by
and I roll with them
Centuries cry
Orders fly
and I fall again

This world is spinning inside me
The whole world is
spinning inside of me
Every day sends future to past
Every step brings me closer
to my last

Pull me under Pull me under
Pull me under I'm not afraid
Living my life too much in
the sun
Only until your will is done
