Lyrics Edit

Part 1: Under the Blue
[Bridge]
Fill my diamond pool
In a summer that's too cruel, cruel
Fill my diamond pool
In a summer that's too cruel, cruel

[Verse 1]
Drowning in the streams, to your town of broken dreams
You get lost in neon green, and you fall in the obscene
That's what you want, oh
It's what you want
I could fill my diamond pool in a summer that's too cruel
Riding on the Ferris wheel, tripping on your plastic heel
It's all you got, oh
It's all you got

[Chorus]
Waves come crashing on in
But I'm feeling the rapture cool on my skin
Take me under the blue
Take me under the blue

[Bridge]
Fill my diamond pool
In a summer that's too cruel, cruel
Fill my diamond pool
In a summer that's too cruel, cruel

[Verse 2]
Howling like a beast, I was never following
It's the savage island scene that you keep on channeling
That's what you want, oh
It's what you want
Bathing in the thunder just because I make it loud
You don't ever have to wonder, I'm not tryna steal your crown
It's all you got, oh
It's all you got

[Chorus]
Waves come crashing on in
But I'm feeling the rapture cool on my skin
Take me under the blue
Take me under the blue
Waves come crashing on in
But I'm feeling the rapture cool on my skin
Take me under the blue
Take me under the blue

[Bridge]
Fill my diamond pool
In a summer that's too cruel, cruel
Fill my diamond pool
In a summer that's too cruel, cruel

[Chorus]
Waves come crashing on in
But I'm feeling the rapture cool on my skin
Take me under the blue
Take me under the blue
Waves come crashing on in
But I'm feeling the rapture cool on my skin
Take me under the blue
Take me under the blue

[Bridge]
Fill my diamond pool
In a summer that's too cruel, cruel
Fill my diamond pool
In a summer that's too cruel, cruel



Part 2: Take Me In
[Verse]
Drowning in the streams, to your town of broken dreams
You get lost in neon green
Howling like a beast, I was never following
It's the savage island scene

[Chorus]
Take me under the blue
Take me under the blue
Take me under the blue
Take me under the blue
