The Wave, from Animal Kingdom's 2012 album, The Looking Away.

Lyrics:
I didn't see you when my eyes are close
The television screen and everything was old
A thing as common as a wave
I checked that everything we build swept away
All the things that may be said

And it all got swept away
And all the ideas
Could they all be swept away?
And it all got swept away

How did all got swept away?
How did all got swept away?
How did all got swept away?
Underneath the wave

All the bottles in the beach washed out
A treat of plastic of a color painted in cups
All this hollow as an empty can
I wanna wake up but I just don't think I can
Hold my heart, it's filling up

And it all got swept away
And it all got swept away
And it all got swept away (underneath the wave)
And it all got swept away

And it all got swept away
And it all got swept away
And it all got swept away
Underneath the wave

You will touch as holding hands
As the wave takes back to land
Hold me closer, now I'm done
Let go, 'cause everything must go

And it all got swept away
And it all got swept away
And it all got swept away (underneath the wave)
And it all got swept away

And it all got swept away
And it all got swept away
And it all got swept away
Underneath the wave


"The Looking Away is about a kind of selective inattention," Richard explains. "A disconnect. It's about averting your gaze. It's about being aware of something while ignoring it. Deciding to tune something out because it could make you feel uncomfortable. It's also about personal complicity and allowing yourself to be distracted and your attention diverted. It's something we tried to represent with the artwork too. The figure is imagining this paradise, but he's not really there; it's a mirage."
