Dan Bull - Subnautica Lyrics

Diffracted and fractured like young dreams
Lost chances to capture these sunbeams
Splintered and shattered like young dreams
That no longer matter

Among a thousand galaxies, each with a thousand stars
You're bound to find another like ours
Submerged and immersed in a version of earth
From innumerable years before your birth
Crash landed on an aquatic planet, stranded
Surrounded by oceanic expanses and no answers
A load of questions and no language to ask 'em in
But the fact is that I'm fascinated, so fasten in

Dappled, divided like young dreams
Devoured, disunited on sunbeams
Disintegrated like young dreams
Embittered, dismayed

We descended under splentid rolling tides
You could find a hole and hide
Or you can rise, revolt and fight
Seize the day and you control the night

Deep down, down below the waves
Is a foreboding place from which you won't escape, no
On the sea floor of Aurora
We see flora and fauna
We feel awesome in auras
Of all different sorts, colours, warmths
And they're forming an ecosystem
Different pieces mixed into some biomes
Of symbiosis and I notice that
Such new sights can just bring eyes to focus
So slow down a moment and toke this hypnosis
No smoke in this ocean, we're floating
Unroped from the woes of the coast, no emotion but motion
Moving, soaking, soothing
If I can go there, so can you
Is it the moon in a mist or a lunar eclipse?
There's no mutual exclusion, the two can exist

Nobody sees me in here
Yet the water's so clear
I guess that confirms what I had thought
Just me and Aurora in the spot
I feel isolation (isolation)
And fascination
I know it seems grim and I am lost
But I won't give in, ignore the cost
(I, oh, mmh)
So I keep gazing at

Distorted, disjointed like young dreams
Crushed, disappointed, these sunbeams
Fractured, fragmented like young dreams
Left unattended

We descended under splentid rolling tides
You could find a hole and hide
Or you can rise, revolt and fight
Seize the day and you control the night

And you control the night
And you control the night
You control the night

  42. Crimson R

    That sunless sea reference though.

  43. Iota

    Geez, those must be really small galaxies.

  44. Xanis o

    Ya' damn Veela coming in with the surprise, and amazing, vocals. I wouldn't mind a stronger alt-vocal presence if it has that kind of impact.

  45. Dillon Godden

    I live it

  46. Marek Králík

    When im coming from work,its number one song in my car radio #1

  47. Dylan Plays

    Great job one of the best I rate it a A plus you to veela

  48. acrobatic alpaca

    Ugh, yeah it was alright but this game has so much potential for good music that so far not even the devs or Dan have been able to fulfill. It needs something less techno and more like some of the songs Alex Turner did for submarine or bright night flowers by Jon Fratelli or possibly some Florence + the machine but the general gist is piano is good. I did like the more vocal bits in the official game sound tracks.

    CJ G

    acrobatic alpaca ?

    CJ G

    I’ve always liked the calm music

  49. Cris03sora

    This is really awesome. Still loving your work ^^

  50. Jacob Glaze

    0:53 my favorite part of the whole song. just the way he says the words with the beat makes it so good

    Rainbo Hornet

  52. THEZOMBOT 04

  54. Slavko Glamočanin

  55. Conspicuous Orb

    Veela? Little nightmares throwback? Squarespace??!? The perfect song.

  56. NateBit8

    1:43 outdated footage

  57. NateBit8


  58. B.A.M. The Scrub

    I love this song! So chill. And Veela's voice... just wow.

  59. The Carniverous Cardinal


  60. Scott Donahue

    Deep down, down below the waves. Where have I heard that before? Oh yeah! The Little Nightmares rap!

  61. RogueGamer907

    Damn her part was awesome then it got better when it became a duet badass job dan

  62. Weiss Galathynius

    Do you self reference your own raps within your raps? Wasn't that deep below the waves forbodeing place line the exact line from your little. Nightmare rap?

  63. Rampage Gaming

    Deep, down down below the waves is a foreboding place from which you wont escape, no those who go there go to stay below the ocean spray who knows your fate

  64. Displaced

    nice use off the sellout backing track during the ad at he end

  65. Ponchovie

    i feel as if you two are dating dan, JUST by the description

  66. ynel

    1:07 Little Nightmare!

  67. Carlos Yanez

    When the fuck are you gonna drop a good song already it's been 3 god damn months.

  68. LankyMcDanky

    i love the speed and tempo of this song keep up the incredible work.

  69. mister person

    subnautica isnt realeased yet

  70. Martyn Kernighan

    I hope not everyone thinks the planet is actually called aurora. it's 4546B

  71. Martyn Kernighan

    Dan, this is fucking amazing. but... the planet is called 4546B... not aurora. aurora is that giant ship that crashed.

  72. Matt

    damn this looks amazing

  73. Tiny Tina

    wait, this isn't the little nightmares rap

  74. Just Defender

    I hope someday IGP or jackscepticeye play this while exploring.

  75. randomvideocommenter

    I had a small freakout on my second time listening to this song when I realized the Sunbeams in the pre-chorus referred to more than one thing... Almost forgot about that...

  76. random vids right now

    1:07 through 1:11 is the lyrics he used for the little nightmares rap

  77. Erubanhron Gaming

    I swear you've used this beat before or something similar and its driving me crazy trying to remember the original video it was in.

  78. The Lowspot

    Oh my mistake mistoke this song for subnatic song thst was cringy but this is good

  79. The Lowspot

    A bit cringy but not bad ok alot cringy

  80. MrBlacksheep98

    Woah, this song has actually made me go and buy the game. I didn't really care before but holy shit it looks nice

  81. Detective Dorian

    I'd almost think this was a Gorillaz song.

  82. orange juice

    Extreme nitpick but why did you say "on the sea floor of aurora" The aurora is the ship that crashed on the planet

  83. zacharie ???

    this song doesnt fit at all to the game in ANY way

  84. Owen Smith

    This low key reminded me of the Gorillaz, Plastic beach

  85. Tannaut Jones

    Mr. Krabs

    Tannaut Sure....

  86. Ahmad TheLivingMeme

    @dan bull i see in your light nightmares rap you used deep down below the there is a forbidding place form which you won't escape XD any one else notice that?

  87. Joe Bothell

    Noq- I want to say the line "on the sea floor of aurora" is wrong, the planet isn't named Aurora. Aurora is the massive crashed ship


    Joe Bothell he knows, it just rhymes

    Joe Bothell

    Fair enough.

  88. Jiggity Spensoul

    Hollow Knight would be a good rap!

  89. Jiggity Spensoul

    Dude.. come on this shit is underrated... NEED MORE VIEWS THE FUCKK

  90. Manuel Vargas

    PewDiePie is better

  91. Ivory Clegg

    It hurt when I had to force myself to stop listening. This was so great!

  92. InternetFeline

    The last time I heard Veela, she sang "Go Back Home", which was a tribute to Disney's Atlantis. Funny I find her singing for an underwater game after all this time.

  93. Colin Newbury

    You make a song about subnautica but not for titan fall 2

  94. Schnitzeldroid

    Veela!! <3
