Track Name: Diving For Pearls (2017 Remaster)
well i rolled out of bed, alone again
although, not quite the same
i miss her here and i hate myself
‘cause i know i’m to blame

well i may be cool to a small town girl
but i’ve always been a fish out of water
she calls me handsome - even ‘beautiful’
but somehow, it just don’t matter

and i’m diving for pearls
but i just keep coming up empty handed
and i’m looking for someone good
but in the surface it’s still my broken reflection

well this thing inside that i’ve become
is killing everything i need
and i’ve wasted time like a champion
now it’s down to the river or the sea

cause i’ve been diving for pearls
hoping for some kind of wisdom
and i wanted to be good
but everything i love i leave abandoned
i’ve been diving for pearls...

in a shattered land, nobody wins
not even the free
between a godless world and a holy war
there’s something we need to see

and i’m diving for pearls
and hope seems my only companion
and i guess, i guess that’s something good
but it don’t amount to much of a religion
i’m diving for pearls
i just keep coming up empty-handed
and i’m looking for someone good
but it’s still only my broken reflection
it’s just our broken reflection
it’s only my broken reflection
