Stay close to the surface
Don’t go deeper

Skeptical of all
We haven’t seen before
We’ve got nothing to learn
From the world outside these walls

We’ve got money
All this black gold
What more could we ask for
We did everything right

These tears are for my neighbours
My family and friends
You only scrape the surface
Of what is really here

Keep wearing your golden rings
Washing your shiny cars
I will dive to the bottom
And get to know what you will not
