Oceans of Rock and Roll
Deeper than deep
Those rolling oceans of Rhythm and Blues
It goes deeper than deep
So don't try to ascribe some kind of meaning to this
You know those oceans of rock and roll
They keep rolling

As the waves beat
On the sand and concrete
It's like one collective heart
Smashing like its made of glass
Breaking over and over
Continuously so
Those rolling oceans of rock and roll
They roll

On those oceans of green and blue
How could one voice stand out?
And yet so many somehow do
Some just seem to be a little more loud
Even when they're singin' softly
In a raging hot sea
Those oceans of rock and roll
They keep rolling

So turn up the reverb
So wet it could drown you out
Yeah turn up the reverb
Til no one knows what yr singin' about
Let it shimmer on the blue tide
Like an inhalation
As it pulls away

I wanna float on the water
Out deeper than deep
Yeah that's what support me
All those voices underneath
All the greats, alive and late
Well they hold us up
And I can feel a heartbeat
