About love, loss, and direction. In the search for a sense of connectivity and belonging, the metaphor of water in this song invokes Archimedes' principle to remind us that we can only find real truth in the incalculable experiences and processes of life. Meaning comes in understanding 'otherness', and the between-ness of things - not in anything we can measure.
