Ataraxia
Team Sleep Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Froze asleep
Coma deep
I dream I'm not out with you
Alone at sea

And you watched the waves
And you sang to me
As we sink
I dream I'm not out with you

Dropping deep
Below the sea
This dream I had with you
Alone at sea

And we watch the waves
You sing to me
As we sink




This dream I had with you
Alone at sea

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Team Sleep's song Ataraxia are imbued with a sense of unease, as the singer describes being frozen asleep in a deep coma and dreaming of being alone at sea with their companion. The repetition of the phrase "I dream I'm not out with you" suggests a haunting feeling of separation or detachment, even as the other person is physically present. The image of sinking together and watching the waves while singing creates a sense of shared doom or resignation. The lyrics take on an eerie quality as the scene is painted of dropping deep below the sea into a dream world filled with the same sense of desolation as the waking one. The lyrics eventually end with the final foreboding line, "This dream I had with you alone at sea."


Ataraxia is a powerful song that captures the feeling of being emotionally adrift and out of touch with reality. It seems to deal with themes of disconnection and the feeling of being alone even with another person. Despite its melancholy tone, Ataraxia is a compelling listen that showcases Team Sleep's talent for creating darkly poetic soundscapes.

Froze asleep
Coma deep
I dream I'm not out with you
Alone at sea

And you watched the waves
And you sang to me
As we sink
I dream I'm not out with you

Dropping deep
Below the sea
This dream I had with you
Alone at sea

And we watch the waves
You sing to me
As we sink
This dream I had with you
Alone at sea

[Verse 1]
Froze asleep
Coma deep
I dream I'm out with you
Alone at sea

[Chorus 1]
And you watched the wave
Then you sang to me as we sank
Dream I had with you

[Verse 2]
Drop beneath
Get below the sea
This dream I had, and you
You row and sing

[Chorus 2]
And we lost the wave
You said to me "and we sleep"
This dream I had with you

[Outro]
Alone at sea
I had with you
You row and sing

this song is so badass, has to be top 20 all time. Its like a heavy version of weird fishes

Chris Frazier

I love that Chino said Siamese Dream by the Pumpkins was a huge influence on him with that wall of sound. Pumpkins are my first favorite band, followed closely by Deftones. Both bands are so atmospheric.

Aaron Jones

How come they only made one album? This is just too good.
