If you look at your reflection in the bottom of a well,
What you see is only on the surface.
When you try to see the meaning, hidden underneath,
The measure of the depth can be deceiving.
The bottom has a rocky reputation.
You can feel it in the distance the deeper down you stare.
From up above it’s hard to see, but you know when you’re there.
On the bottom words are shallow.
On the surface talk is cheap.
You can only judge the distance by the company you keep…
–Joe Walsh, “The Confessor”
