A song about being at rock bottom

Vocal, Keith Richbell; keyboards and guitars, Colin Bates; bass, Brian Booth

The original version, which I can't find anywhere, is much dreamier; this is a version my former bandmates zhuzzed up a bit
Whirlpool

Music and lyrics: Brian Booth, copyright 2014


Whirlpool
Going down for the first time
Whirlpool
No straws to grasp at, this time

How did it come to this?

My life
Up on a big screen
My life
A film that I’ve not yet seen

How did it come to this?

Sinking
No lifeboats come this way
Sinking
And no great last words to say

How did it come to this?

Swirling
Waters close above my head
Swirling
Whole account left in the red

Not waving, but drowning
