I don't think you ever know in yourself whether you have gone mad. You exist in a bubble. There comes a point where you suddenly feel not really a part of the world, you're just passing through.
-- Chris Lowe
There are some songs that hide what they mean
and The Beatles came up with such a song
which they titled "The Yellow Submarine"
lyrics little understood -- but strong.
I used to hum the catchy tune
a teenager, happy, careless and free
on top of the world like imaginary tycoon
not even think what some day I wanted to be.
Many years passed until that day
when the lyrics got a meaning for me
some deep truth they wanted to convey
about human nature that not many can see.
Yes, in a yellow submarine we all live
submerged in our subconscious bubble
too far from conscious that we could forgive
and that represents our biggest human trouble.
We cannot see beyond that enclosed space
far down from sun of the enlightening sky
switched on automatic, most of our race
from our day of birth till the day we die.
How little would it really take to emerge
out of the depth that's so murky and afar
perhaps at least to be floating on the verge
of two worlds -- wet, but knowing that we are.
