Between The Buried And Me - Swim To The Moon Lyrics




It’s been a long night... away from it all.
The grabbing authority of my peers...
The rusty cage that never seems to open...
When can I escape?
When can I swim to the moon?
I’ve heard this expression my entire life... never realized how peaceful a statement it is.
I’ve heard this expression my entire life... never realized how peaceful a statement it is.
All alone on the worlds waters... here I am.
The sun’s slowly drifting past the edge of the world...
All alone on the worlds waters... here I am.
The sun’s slowly drifting past the edge of the world...
I’m the loneliest boat on this entire body of water.
Rest will give my awakening purpose... this is why I have come here in the first place.
A peace I have never felt... a life I did not want to live.
I will awake through sleep...
The drifting drifter... look into the picture...
No more panic, no more regret.
No more hoping for a new mess.
Slide into the water.
Become one with the sea.
Life seems so much smaller.

Swim to the moon.

I awake with a cool breeze blowing through my dirty hair.
Rested, stable... a first.
A caffeine junkie’s longest wish: peace and quiet...
No wake ups, no expectations...
A strange feeling... suddenly drifting...
No wake ups, no expectations...
A strange feeling... suddenly drifting...
This “As Seen on TV” anchor is just another lie, I guess... hoping for something not there.
Filling a void that I can’t quite put my finger on.
Filling a void.
This loneliness I always seek.
I’m in the middle of black water.
No sign of human life in any direction...
The most peaceful event of my life seems to have typically turned into a struggle.
I’m in the middle of black water... no sign of human life.
Panic takes over my body.
Panic takes over my body, over my body.
I have indeed floated due to a non-reversible decision to flee.
Just for a day I told myself... my survival skills were lost years ago.
Here I am: no food, no clean water, and this extremely embarrassing attempt at a “get away outfit”.
This is an inevitable death, inevitable death.
Slide into the water.
Become one with the sea.
Life seems so much smaller.
Swim to the moon.
Look into the picture...
Look into the picture...
Look into the picture...
Look into the picture...
This is what I lived to be.
This very moment is the first time in my life that I’ve felt pure joy.
Slide into the water.
Become one with the sea.
Life seems so much smaller.
Swim to the moon.
Slide into the water.
Become one with the sea.
Life seems so much smaller.
Swim to the moon.
Slide into the water.
Become one with the sea.
Life seems so much smaller.
Swim to the moon.

  12. Cole Allen

    I wonder if the map on the album art is a real place and obscured with all the orange and pixels, or made up just for the album.

  13. konrad776

    2:12 BB8, is that you!?

  14. ComfyCorgi

    the solo gets me so fucking pumped up

  15. Omgacow1000

    This is probably the most underrated song of all time. This is a fucking masterpiece. The drum solo at 6:40 is godlike

  16. joe jordan

    This is a masterpiece, always has been. I was 21 when this came out, some of my fondest memories...

  17. austudio au

    very detail of melody

  18. Justin Chancellor le God

    not even that much of a BTBAM fan but that song is god tier

  19. Professor Chocolate Cake

    A Xylophone in a metal song? I think I've heard everything now.

    ᅚᅚ ᅚᅚᅚᅚ

    hope you listened to Empath by Devin Townsend now a year later.

  20. Shade

    around like 12:20 the sound drops and i hate it..

    Mloclam Nomdnih

    While I agree with you. It'd be kinda hard given that its basically 18 minutes long.

  21. william hambuchen

    I want a 10 year tour for tgmd like they did for colors!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jose A. Jara Jr.

    william hambuchen 100% agree with this.

    CrappyDrumCovers1337

    Wish granted

    EnjoiSweatshopMoney

    Wish granted. 20 year anniversary tour and they're doing misdirect all the way through

  22. Mark Wakefield

    White Walls, or Swim to the Moon?: that is the question.

    Weird Political Guitarist

    The breakdown to White Walls is what keeps Swim to the Moon from topping.

    devin zelman

    Listen to this break down again guys. This song has white walls beat. Btbam gets better and better

    DarkCity94

    White Walls for sure

    Brian Smith

    Selkies.

    That is the Answer.

    Ruben Aguilar

    silent flight parliment. jet propulsion disengage, that’s why...

  23. RzaBladeUSMC21

    “The swim” is dopest riff ever conceived.

    fpjesus

    Which one is "the swim"?

    MoonJellyGames

    It's the one that's really dope.

    Jose A. Jara Jr.

    MoonJellyGames Hahaha nice one 😂

  24. Doe Jonathan

    Damn, Blake is one hell of a beast.

    Alex Kirk

    one of the best to ever do it!!!

  25. Jeffrey Koronin

    They are the masters of prog metal, yet they are their own genre!

    flagmuffin1221

    @Conor McCormack Protest the Hero? Kek.

    the apple kingdom

    @Conor McCormack Good bands, yes, but literally nothing like 'BAM besides being proggy, in which case you might as well consider that any prog band sounds similar to BTBAM

    Alex Kirk

    No one will ever come lose to doing what they do man

    Jordi Aguilar Carreño

    Opeth yes. And sings more better. The older albums.

    Jordi Aguilar Carreño

    Ghost Reveries, for example..

  26. Chad Wilson

    just wonderful.

  27. Pedro Pdvoraks

    excelente

  28. TundraL5Z

    12:30 to 14:00 is eargasm
    BTBAM are super humans... how can they write music this good and construct a story within the songs that is just as fascinating and interesting to research about?!

  29. Woottipat Herabat

    The lead guitar in this song sounds so much like "Running from Devil" from Doom 2

    Joseph H.

    That's Running from Evil, but you are totally right! Definitely sounds like that track from Doom 2 :)

  30. Father Thunder

    @couchfacestudios I love you. I wish my school would let me pick a metal song.

  31. Justin Bauer

    @Pierorocks good :D

  32. Alex Woodruff

    I seriously listen to this song every day. Well all their albums that is :P

  33. Kryptik316

    The Parallax is due to arrive on the 12th or 13th of april I believe. Somewhere around there. Can't wait for this... Its going to be so amazing.

  34. noogai132

    Beautiful.

  35. svveett

    @Austinmp47 According to their twitter today, they are in Toronto and have just begun tracking the EP. My guess is it will drop sometime in March or April.

    Jose A. Jara Jr.

    svveett That “new” EP is fucking awesome

  36. Austinmp47

    @svveett Do you know when?

  37. svveett

    Cant wait for the new EP!
