Some people tell you
They're trapped in the distance
And can't get what
They want most.
They throw a wall
And then call for assistance
And make no attempt to get close.

Oh, I think you should know
You've got to go slow
Below the surface
And easy through the waves.
Slow below the surface
And easy through the waves.

You're running so fast
That you can't find the past
And your future is wearing thin
Come from behind
It's a matter of time
'til you see where you've always been

Oh, I think you should know
You've got to go slow
Below the surface
And easy through the waves
Slow below the surface
And easy through the waves.

Some people tell you they're in trapped in the distance
And can't get what they want most
They throw up a wall and then
Call for assistance
And make no attempt to get close.

Oh, I think you should know
You've got to go slow
Below the surface
And easy through the waves
Slow below the surface
And easy through the waves.
You know that your
Life must have a purpose
You better make a stand
While you still can.
