Peter Murphy – Deep Ocean Vast Sea lyrics

Deep ocean. Vast sea
Deep ocean. Vast sea

Your ocean heart, clothed in respect and sweet caress my uneasy mind
You dip and you swell, float and you find and sweet caress my uneasy mind

Deep ocean. Vast sea
Deep ocean. Vast sea... that's me

Imagine a set of steps easily climbed to the power of pride, the plastic of mind...
Where there lies a table... the table stands for the power of success, respect on the sign.
Intelligence so cold. A heart like glass from the surface to deep
You wave then you dive like the heart and the sun
You wave and you dive. You hold me so cold. You wave and you dive

Deep ocean. Vast sea
Deep ocean. Vast sea... that's deep

You're clothed in respect. You smell of sweet caress. Dip and swell
Beyond the power fo fists, your ocean heart healing uneasy minds
And I wanna dive in with you, clinging to the rock, I'm waiting

Deep ocean. Vast sea
Deep ocean. Vast sea... that's deep

Your heart is hard. You think your legs hurt. You smell of aching sweet success
Your head's a supernova and you would like anything to stop the pain from your finger screaming
There you stand, naked in the sun without leather
Whose pain you think you need, but all you need to do is undress, let go and wash

Take the steps to the other side. Up-turned razors the air is thick with karma
The sutra of a way down. Listen boy, it's a long way down... down to heaven's gate
To heaven gate the steps the steps to the tower of pride
The devil lied. Dive up to the highest point, where our lives are saved
Where all the lives on the table stand
Power and success respect and climb the steps
