Under the Brine

I will live to be a hundred or so, and I will be someone who never grew old. In this song I sing to a world from the bottom of an ocean, under some oil. I’ve only now just begun telling the world what I’ve got on my mind this time. A paradise is lost; the sacrifice is used up. You’ve gotta put it all back together – you gotta fix it this time. I know about those bottom dollar altars you find way under the brine. If I live to see peace on earth again, I will be somewhere deep in this earth. With a rock on a wall someone will write about a world with a bunch of people who were dukin’ it out. I don’t think even they’ll understand living in a world and living with the land. A paradise will be lost again; the sacrifice of pumping me up. You’ve gotta put it all back together – you gotta fix it this time. I know about those bottom dollar altars you find way under the brine. The brine is a home to millions of living creatures. I don’t think 1989 ever recovered.

  • About Andrew McGee

    I am from a small town in northwest Florida where I spent my formative years studying music and eventually attending college for Integrated Marketing and Communication Studies. In 2008 after moving to Nashville to be closer to the music industry, I realized I liked working in web communications. Always having a knack for storytelling, I began seeking opportunities to help small business owners with their online goals, and developed skills to communicate comfortably with clients while executing technically advanced tasks. I earnestly connect with people and enjoy taking the time to patiently explain complex, technical solutions to people who are justifiably more focused on running their whole business and less focused on the tedious details of digital.
