Lyrics

The murky waters call to me once more
I dive in head first, belly skims the floor
Crave the solace and the pressure in my chest
The ache is my companion and it's what I know best

Send my message through the void and I stand-by
Wait around a minute more, there's no reply
I head up to the surface cause I need to get some air
Once again I'm half-relieved that there is no one there

And this emptiness is killing me
It's a self-fulfilling prophecy
I pray you haven't drifted very far
I'll send signals to you over there
And hope they echo back to here
This current's pulling us from Who We Are

I'm sending Sonar
Sending sonar

Some will hold resentments till the end
Keep it in our hearts just like a friend
But veins will soon be hardened over time
We fail to understand that blood is thicker than pride

And this emptiness is killing me
It's a self-fulfilling prophecy
I pray you haven't drifted very far
I'll send signals to you over there
And hope they echo back to here
This current's pulling us from Who We Are
I'm sending Sonar
Sending sonar

Cause this emptiness is killing me
It's a self-fulfilling prophecy
I pray you haven't drifted very far
Cause the signals I've sent over there
Will someday echo back to here
A silent symphony of Who We Are

I'm sending Sonar
