about

Watery Grave by The Jailbirds, the lead single from their follow-up record “Jungle”, was the first song written for the album many moons ago. At the time of its inception, the guys had no idea what was in store for the song.

The piece puts the listener in the shoes of a pirate on his ship as he encounters a siren woman that sucks the life out of him.
He is aware that she is bad for him, but doesn’t know why, and doesn’t want to admit it to himself; Sirens are not what they seem. The track culminates in a violent realization that the Mariner had been lead too far out to sea. The woman he thought he knew had lured him to his Watery Grave.

This song was written in conjunction with the other 4 tracks on the album. It is the 4th on the EP, and the second last chapter of the whole story. The “Jungle” EP is loosely a concept record, following the experiences and troubles of one character throughout the entirety of the album. He struggles with mental health, vices, relationships, and accepting himself; topics that The Jailbirds feel passionately about and have lived through themselves.

This is a piece of their souls, and they hope this content can someday help someone in need, similar to how music has helped The Birds in one way or another with their lives.

lyrics

There's a superstition in the men who roam the sea
A woman swimmin' in my dreams
Her curves are the waves of lust in me

The curves of the waves remind me
Yeah yeah

Girl I know the way that you move
And we all know the danger
I'll take what you will give to me when
The ocean calls for me and you

Oh baby girl
I will reach your shore
Down low there's a watery grave for me
I should have known you'd show me more

The curves of the waves remind me
Yeah yeah

Girl I know the way that you move
And we all know the danger
I'll take what you will give to me
When the ocean calls to me and you

Girl I know the way that you move
And we all know the danger
I'll take what you will give to me
When the ocean calls to me and you

The ocean calls for me and you
The ocean calls
