Song Annotations

The Warning's "Sharks" explores themes of paranoia, vulnerability, and survival. The song employs the metaphor of sharks to represent the ever-present dangers and predatory nature of individuals who attempt to exploit flaws. The song's strong lyrics and driving rock music capture the tension and urgency of attempting to stay ahead in a hazardous environment.

Annotations and Meaning

. The first lyric establishes a sense of impending peril, with "something lurking in the water" giving an immediate sense of menace. The continuous cautions to "swim a little faster" and "bring proof" emphasize the necessity to be watchful and prove oneself. The sentences "it's the meat that really matters" and "the bones all end up falling out" imply that only the tangible, valuable pieces are sought for, while the rest is discarded. The pre-chorus emphasizes the tension between failing to meet expectations and being kept close, almost like an enemy. The song's major theme is the dichotomy of needing to stay close while still being threatening. In the chorus, the artist pleads for assistance, feeling exposed and vulnerable ("watch me drown, ripped to shreds under the light"). The sharks circling represent people who are prepared to attack at any hint of vulnerability. The advise to "shut your mouth" implies the necessity to be silent in order to avoid being targeted. The second lyric underlines the futility of violence, which only leads to greater violence. The sentence "you're stuck in your skin, there's no way to win" emphasizes the unavoidable nature of the circumstance. The notion that "they're always watching you" fosters widespread surveillance and pressure to conform. The bridge emphasizes the danger and calls into question what is actually valuable. The rhetorical question "Does it really matter?" questions the concept of worth in such a predatory environment. The closing chorus and post-chorus emphasize the sense of impending doom and the predators' relentless nature ("you know they're bleeding you out"). The repetition of "don't bleed" serves as a strong warning to avoid displaying any signs of vulnerability.

Sharks Song Lyrics

Sharks by The Warning


There's something lurking in the water
You better swim a little faster now
You better be good, you better bring proof
Because they're watching over you
(Don't bleed, don't bleed)
(Don't bleed, don't bleed)
It's the meat that really matters
The bones all end up falling out
If you're gonna rot, then add to the plot
Because they're always watching you
(Don't bleed, don't bleed)
(Don't, don't, don't)

[Pre-Chorus]
Couldn't be everything that you wanted me to be
But you're keeping me close likе an enemy

[Chorus]
Help mе now, how am I supposed to hide?
Watch me drown, ripped to shreds under the light
Sharks come circling, don't say anything, waiting for the teeth to bite you
Shut your mouth, you know
They're bleeding you out
(Don't bleed, don't bleed)
(Don't bleed, don't bleed)
[Verse 2]
Violence only brings violence
Keep quiet, put the muscle on
You're stuck in your skin, there's no way to win
You know they're always watching you
If we only bring silence, all we'll ever be is good as dead
When they got you surrounded, waiting to pounce in
They're watching over you
(Don't bleed, don't bleed)
(Don't, don't)

[Chorus]
Help me now, how am I supposed to hide?
Watch me drown, ripped to shreds under the light
Sharks come circling, don't say anything, waiting for the teeth to bite you
Shut your mouth, you know
They're bleeding you out

[Bridge]
Don't bleed, don't bleed
Don't bleed, don't bleed
Don't bleed, don't bleed
There's something lurking in the water
You better swim a little faster now
“It's the meat that really matters”
Does it really matter?
[Chorus]
Help me now, how am I supposed to hide?
Watch me drown, ripped to shreds under the light
Sharks come circling, don't say anything, waiting for the teeth to bite you
Shut your mouth, you know
They're bleeding you out
(Don't bleed, don't bleed)
(Don't bleed, don't bleed)
(Don't bleed, don't bleed)
You know they're bleeding you out
