There's Something In The Water
Rory Webley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I hate myself
For saying yes
I should've stuck to my movie night I'm afraid of being boring
I hate myself
For going in
Ignored all the danger signs plastered on the fence
It's half past ten the alcohol's flowing
Our brain cells are going someone dives in
The music's so loud
Can someone turn it down I'm getting drowned out
There's something in the water
I should've seen it before
Now one by one they're going under
There's something in the water
I keep yelling at them no one can hear anything
There's something in the water
One by one my friends are gone
Now I'm the sole survivor
Kept telling me
You're no fun
But look at you, body's lying dead in the water
I wish I could have been the one
To warn you about this massacre
But now I'm having fun
I really tried to warn you guys
Maybe if you listened to me
You would have survived
It's way past ten
The blood is flowing
Your bodies are squirming
Why am I laughing
The music's so loud
Nobody turned it down
Your screaming's drowned out
There's something in the water
I should've seen it before
Now one by one they're going under
There's something in the water
I keep yelling at them no one can hear anything
There's something in the water
One by one my friends are gone
Now I'm the sole survivor
Kept telling me
You're no fun
But look at you, body's lying dead in the water
Kept telling me
You're no fun
You're no fun
You're no fun
You're no fun
You're all bad friends
Now that you're dead
Don't have to pretend that I like you
I resent that you made me feel less than you
There's something in the water
One by one my friends are gone
Now I'm the sole survivor
Kept telling me




You're no fun
But look at you, body's lying dead in the water

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Rory Webley's "There's Something In The Water" depict a nightmarish scenario where the singer's friends are drowning one by one after ignoring warning signs about the water. The song starts with the singer's regrets for saying yes to going in the water and ignoring the warning signs. As the night progresses, the singer's friends start drowning, but the music is too loud, and nobody can hear the singer's warnings. In the end, the singer is the sole survivor, and they unleash their resentment towards their friends, who made them feel inferior.


The lyrics use water as a metaphor for the danger that the singer's friends face. The death of the singer's friends represents their descent into the danger that they willingly chose. The music's loudness and the drowning screams of the friends represent the chaos that ensues when people ignore warnings and fall into danger. The singer's resentment in the end shows how the friends' death left a bitter taste in their mouth.

I hate myself
For saying yes
I should have stuck to my movie night
I'm afraid of being boring
I hate myself
For going in
Ignoring all the danger signs plastered on the fence

It's half past ten
The alcohol's flowing, our brain cells are going
Someone dives in
The music's so loud, can someone turn it down?
I'm getting drowned out

There's something in the water
I shoulda seen it before
Now one by one they're going under (Ahh)
There's something in the water
I keep yelling at them, no one can hear anything
There's something in the water
One by one my friends are gone
Now i'm the sole survivor

Kept tellin' me
"You're no fun"
But look at you
Bodies lyin' dead in the water

I wish I could have been the one
To warn you 'bout this massacre, but now i'm havin' fun
I really tried to warn you guys
Maybe if you listened to me
You would have survived

It's way past ten, the blood is flowing
Your bodies are squirming, why am I laughing?
The music's so loud, nobody turned it down
Your screaming's drowned out

There's something in the water
I shoulda seen it before
Now one by one they're going under
There's something in the water
I keep yelling at them, no one can hear anything
There's something in the water
One by one my friends are gone
Now i'm the sole survivor

Kept tellin' me
"You're no fun"
But look at you
Bodies lyin' dead in the water

Kept tellin' me
"You're no fun"
"You're no fun"
"You're no fun"
"You're no fun"
You're all bad friends
Now that you're dead
Don't have to pretend that I like you
I resent
That you made me feel less than you

There's something in the water
One by one my friends are gone
Now I'm the sole survivor
Kept tellin' me
"You're no fun"
But look at you
Bodies lyin' dead in the water

Ignoring all the danger signs
Plastered on the fence
