Starset - Diving Bell Lyrics




Prepare the diving bell
It's time to take this low again
I sink into myself, low
No need for farewell
I know you always understand

Sorry there's no place for you inside the solitude
Just stay up here until I'm back again
I swear I'll be there for you
I swear I'll follow through
Stay the course and keep the ship manned

I was certain if I fell through the bottom
You'd be happy just to float here on your own
I was never quite prepared for the long ride, oh
Away, away, away, alone

Oh, this wasn't in my plans
Abandoned ship and headed for the sand
Oh, the albatross crash-lands
I've got the sinking feeling that I never can go home

If I stare into the abyss
Will it stare into me?
If I stare into the abyss
Will it stare into me?
If I stare into the abyss
Will it stare into me?
If I stare into the abyss
Will it stare into me?

Prepare the diving bell
Maybe just for a spell, again
As far as I can tell
Oh, you knew me too well
I miss you there when I descend

Sorry, there's no place for you inside the solitude
Just stay up here until I'm back again

Oh, this wasn't in my plans
Abandoned ship and headed for the sand
Oh, the albatross crash-lands
I've got the sinking feeling that I never can go home

If I stare into the abyss
Will it stare into me?
If I stare into the abyss
Will it stare into me?
If I stare into the abyss
Will it stare into me?
If I stare into the abyss
Will it stare into me?

In my mind, endless sea
Calling from the bottom, but you don't hear me
Send your line down to me
Meet me on the surface
I will never leave

In my mind, endless sea
Calling from the bottom but you don't hear me
Send your line down to me
Meet me on the surface
I will never leave

Just one time, all I need
Calling from the bottom but you don't hear me
Stuck in time, stuck in me
Broken on the bottom like a refugee

Wake me when the new day comes
Together we will ride the sun
The future is an empty gun
We ride on to them one-by-one

Wake me when the new day comes
Together we will ride the sun
The future is an empty gun
We ride on to them one-by-one

Wake me when the new day comes
Together we will ride the sun
The future is an empty gun
We ride on to them one-by-one
One-by-one

  2. Thicc Thanos

    I cried so fucking hard😭😭😭

  3. Zerinth

    I think Starset would actually be a bit worse with 0 Autotune at all.. The roboticish undertones of Dustin's voice is just amazing.

  4. De Bolt

    I just realized today that there is a new STARSET Album that was released five months ago.

    And now I‘m like:
    „NOOOOOOOO! THIS WASN‘T IN MY PLAN!“ XD

  13. jammydodger222Xxd

    This and 'other worlds than these' are probably my two favourite starset songs

  14. Avarem

    Самая недооценённая группа, которая мне встречалась, и это грустно, осознавая то, что они создают, действительно хороший контент!
    Я искренне надеюсь на то, что вы обретёте мировое признание, и у вас будет, по минимуму сотни миллионов просмотров на каждом клипе.
    STARSET Лучший!

  15. Braden Nielsen

    I was watching Smallville on Hulu with my girlfriend when I realized, wait, I've heard this theme song somewhere... but, this show was made in the very early 2000's. Nope, the chorus of that song just sounds SO similar to the chorus here. Remy Zero- Save Me is the song.

    Amazing how two songs across decades can sound similar but be so different.

  16. dark soul

    Starset, my favorite band, I love all of your songs keep it up guys

  17. John Smith

    Really like this video.. matches the vibe of the song perfectly

    I also like how it shows the light from the lamp on the other side of the room yet he chooses to sit on the darker side to show his emotions

  18. Sam

    This song is so full of pain without being aggressive. It is like I can get rid of a part of that pain in myself every time I sing along. Thank you, Starset, for creating something so perfect.

  19. saul herrera

    But like can we get a video, or transmission for Perfect Machine?

  20. Dillon's Den

    I have waited almost 20 years for this unique and amazing band to materialize, then produce songs that make me tingle from my head to my toes. Literally the best band on the planet.

    My friend loves nightcore and he made me listen to this. He said he felt good about it.
    I said that it was terrible I didn't get that "Sinking feeling" when I listened to it I didn't get the emotions I wanted for what this gave me. Starset has been the band I've listen to ever since I was 5 and I always had space like dreams. I felt like they gave me life as I looked into the space ocean of life when I breath I feel alive.

  29. Francis Chaves

    It's hard to pick a favourite song with this guys

    That single tear at the end. God damn.

  31. Shania Frangipanini

    Omg I'm obsessed with them o.o

  32. Reverie626

    To me this song feels like that point in depression when you isolate . . . and you really have to be alone to figure your mind out. I feel like that's what he means by "sorry there's no place for you inside this solitude." It's like he is talking to a close friend/partner/person who is waiting for him to come back from his despair, knowing they can't join him in his mind. I know my loved ones waited for me until I "came back" from some serious trauma. It felt like being alone under water... But I knew they were there, waiting til I could back on land so to speak, back to myself. It breaks my heart that in this song, it sounds like the one he was counting on didn't wait. Dustin is so talented. His music is truly a gift to everyone fighting their own demons. It got me through the worst times. Everytime I listen I know I am not alone 🖤 None of us are. Hope things look up for you.

  33. *ERROR243* name not found

    2:51... "In my mind, endless sea, calling from the bottom but you don't hear me"... I feel that so deep within my heart...

    the vocals in this song, just show how downright talented starset is, why do they not have more publicity!?

  38. Lord Knight

    May I ask what the meaning of this song is. I love listening to this song

    TheGamerPokemon

    I think you can interpret it any way you want, but my interpretation of it:
    This guy thinks he just needs a break. He just needs to isolate himself, and go deep into his own mind, for a little while. He's planning to get out. He's just "diving in". He doesn't want to bring anyone in ("sorry there's no place for you, inside the solitude".) He wants everyone around him to just keep going until he gets back "stay the course and keep the shipment".

    However, he becomes trapped in this state of solitude. "OOOH, this wasn't in my plans", "I've got a sinking feeling that I never really can go home".

    He wishes he could reach out to a friend/lover. "Calling from the bottom but you don't hear me"
    "Meet me on the surface and I will never leave".

    Lord Knight

    @TheGamerPokemon wow that's so deep thank you for sharing your opinion

    TheGamerPokemon

    @Lord Knight Anytime. :)

  39. Team Height87

    These Lyrics. I love when there are not just words together.

  41. Omar Yañez Zavala

    this is so beautiful😍😍😍

  42. thefench1

    for me the song is about somebody who went onto a journey or something has an accident and is in coma now

  43. FabioKoala444

    Best song ever!!!!!!!

  44. MadMarco

    One of their best songs!

  45. G0DM0NSTER

    Definitely one of my favorite songs on the album. The mix of super heavy and super soft in this is gorgeous. These guys never disappoint.

  46. wseed

    2:11 this gives me goosebumps everytime

  47. Kyla Jasmine

    This is one of those songs that just sums up depression so well for me. It's like a feeling of sinking a d drowning, but there is so much emotion that you aren't sure if you can swim through it to the surface. Then there are the times where you are fine and then suddenly you are in the throws of depression being tossed around.
    The feeling of relief I get from listening to this song is beyond describable.

  48. Casey Tallant

    "In my mind, endless sea, calling from the bottom but you don't hear me." This is how depression can feel for a lot of people; screaming yet no one can hear you. Endless thoughts that require an outside force to save you from.

  49. Ben Hughes

    ‘Yo we need some imagery for our song’

    I say the whole divisions album is amazing! I loved starset since I heard my demons on Spotify and ever since they've been my favorite band of 2019 My favorite songs from it are: waking up, other worlds than these, diving bell, echo, stratosphere, can't forget where the skies end.

  70. CloudsGirl7

    I keep coming back to listen to this song - it really has burrowed its way into my heart since I first heard it. It has knocked me on my ass, touching me in an emotional and cerebral way, and I think it's safe to say that this song has affected me in the same way that 'My Demons' and 'Starlight' have before.

    It didn't take long for me to realize how this song can be taken as a metaphor for depression and loneliness (amid tragedy, at that), like with the lyrics, 'sorry there's no place for you inside the solitude, just stay up here until I'm back again' - as if to say "you can't help me, but trust me, I'll be fine". And the ending lyrics sound like a last desperate plea ('just one time, all I need'), the strong, emotional music a fitting and beautiful background to the scene - it literally brings tears to my eyes. Some may say that this song isn't "hard", but it certainly is *heavy* , and deep.

    Which is what I expect from Starset.

    TheGamerPokemon

    Exactly. I believe it has a lot of mental health related feel to it; the way it causes us to isolate ourselves, and mask our problems for others. We think we have control: that we can stop the isolation whenever we want, but "oh, this wasn't in my plans,". "I've got a sinking feeling that I never can go home" feels like it refers to how things can't return to how they were before, while also suggesting that you literally find it difficult to go in and out of your home, because you know that's where you isolate yourself.

    randy bray

    Why do a lot people isolate themselves when they'er sad? For me it seems to be the opposite when i'm fine i don't give a shit to talk but when i'm falling apart i'll show up on your door step.

    TheGamerPokemon

    @randy bray  randy bray  There's multiple different reasons people may isolate themselves when sad.

    •A common one is, that when you're sad, you're vulnerable. A lot of people don't want to show their insecurities and weaknesses to others, in fear of how it will be seen, or how other people will react to it.

    •Another one is that some people might feel that their friends don't want to hear or see them sad. That they'll leave them or tease them for being sad. Some "friends" even do so. That's why it's better that no one sees them sad or their true emotions.

    •Others may feel like they don't deserve to get help and be cared for when they're sad. They feel worthless and inferior. They don't want to burden their friends or family with "their small, dumb problems". And they feel like their friends or family don't need to be dragged down with their problems.

    •Some might also feel like they have no true friends they can trust with their problems, or anyone who would truly support them when sad. If you don't trust anyone, or don't have a good and close friend to get help from, it feels like the only way to deal with the sadness is isolation.

    Again, many people isolate themselves when sad for lots of different reasons. It could be a mixture of reasons, multiple reasons from what I said above, or none of them. However, I hope this was able to give you some insight.

    randy bray

    @TheGamerPokemon Thank you for your answer. And yes it has given me a bit of insight. I think so anyway.

    TheGamerPokemon

    @randy bray I'm glad to hear. Happy to help. 😁

  75. Shadowphantom66

    everyone is asking why everything is always blue and I am just sitting here asking myself why this guy won't stop staring at the screen and not blinking and how the staring intensifies

    watch your game

    He's not even staring AT the camera, he stares PAST it

  78. Joshua Anonymous

    “I’ve got the sinking feeling that I never can go home...” That line hits hards as I am about to cross oceans and know I will be gone for years alone. And “I’m sorry there’s no place for you.” So at the same time it feels right.

  79. Dion Baker Jr.

    Omg, the ending. How it goes from calm to, Oblivion, and then to EVERYTHING! If I could cry, this song would lead me to it.
    It stirs emotion of depression and the despair of solitude and the falsified feeling of futility of reaching out. Personifies the voices of the darker recesses of the mind which should never be headed... Yet it resonates quite powerfully.
    Either way, this song is WAY awesome! Got it on constant repeat.

  80. BadWolf Chelsea

    The line between coincidence and pattern has become too blurred.

  81. Jesse

    Too much singy-ness

  82. Einangrun `

    Actor:"Can I just do nothing and stare in camera?"
    Starset:"...hmmm,this'll be amazing!"(best band I ever hear)

  83. Brittany Wolfie

    IS THE BIRD CRASHING OR IS IT A ACTUAL CRASH SITE?!

    TheGamerPokemon

    I'm guessing it is wounded, and thus looses height, falling and crash landing.

  84. darkpjo

    what do you guys think it means "the solitude" he names it in several parts of Divisions.

  85. Dayz is bad

    Even my six year old loves this album!

  86. Whispy Woods

    So what is the meaning behind this song? Divorce? Loss due to addiction? Something else?

    This is one of my favorite right now the entire album is 🔥

  89. Wolf-Claw666

    This highly reminds me of their song Ricochet, which is to this day my most favorite Starset song. This album is like a badass remake of their older songs

    Flamefiends

    It's a very pleasant blend of the old and the new. Words can't describe how happy this album makes me

  90. Hugo Carvalho

    Have you guys noticed the differe between Diving Bell and Stratosphere clips?
    Diving Bell - Blue color dominates, black male actor, the lyrics and name of the song talks about the depths, the ambient in the clip is messy.
    Stratosphere - White color dominates, white female actress, the lyrics and name of the song talks about high altitudes and suck, the ambient is clean.

    Esperaba que el final fuese un poco mejor
    -creo que se les acabó en tiempo de la canción y tenían que terminarlo rápido por lo cual decidieron cortarlo con una palabra

  95. Matt Musicaddict

    This song gets better every time I listen to it.

  96. Christoph Piekert

    Does anyone else can hear the slight sound of mnqn in the beat?

  97. Sub Zero

    Detroit become Starset

  98. Praecantetia

    This song grew on me. I didn't like it at first

    So here we are, having listened to every song of the album a few times. Tbh I'm disappointed, I didn't expect them to go Pop Rock, but Rock bands choosing the soft route after their first couple albums isn't surprising anymore. I only really like Diving Bell and Other Worlds Than These. Oh well, the old songs are still there for us to enjoy..
