about

The High Divers Charleston, South Carolina

“Riverlust”, the group’s debut album, is full of southern tinged imagery that places you in the deep woods of South Carolina. The High Divers create music that nods to the southern rebelliousness of Tom Petty, the raw beauty of Neil Young, and the genre clashing of Wilco, yet is leaning forward all the time. ... more

Track Name: Rising Water
Rising Water
I know you're trying, we've been doing the best we can
Stuck on an Island, laying low for another plan
I'm Glad it's not like you, to struggle with despair

Oh The rising water, surging towards your head
Grab my hand we'll take the plunge
But baby hold your breath

Can't stand to die here
Working from morning til the day is dead
We're so alone now
What good is money if you've got no friends?
I'm glad it's not like you struggle with despair

Oh The rising water, surging towards your head
Grab my hand we'll take the plunge
But baby hold your breath

Oh my babe, sweet visions of us on some sunny day
Far away from all the heartache and pain
Girl we've got to run
Oh The Rising water
Track Name: Summertime
We're a Blank Slate and the days are long, up all night, Sleep at dawn Yeah there's work tomorrow, but for now we'll dance
We may not get a second chance
I took you to the lifeguards chair, we must have spent three hours there 'til the sun came up, and burned our skin
so we went to find some shade again
In the Summer, in the Summertime
You'd do your hair for friday night
and all the boys would set their sights
You'd pick the ones, with the wild eyes They'd grab your hands, and you'd just smile
But they didn't know you like I did
How you keep your heart so well hid
And while your miles away in some northern trap Come July, you'll be coming back.
In The Summer, In The Summertime
Track Name: Give It Up
I find it horrifying, the way you left your dreams
totally dismembered, buried near the trees
But how much money keeps quiet your heart and soul I never thought you'd fall but now you do as your told
Why do you give it up so easy?
Why do you give it up so easy?
You could have it any way you wanted
The almighty dollar, has got you out on the chase now you're sad as a piano, that nobody plays
But how much money keeps quiet your heart and soul I never thought you'd fall but now you do as your told
Why do you give it up so easy?
Why do you give it up so easy?
You could have it any way you wanted Why do you give it up so easy?
Why do you give it up so easy?
You could have it any way you wanted
Track Name: Wild With You
Veered from the road, wandered off the path Burned the only bridge that could take us back Roam baby roam, run for the woods
Wade down the river, oh ain't life good
We'll yell through the hills, Climb till we're dead Paint a pretty life we could hang in our head Embers from a fire, causin clouds of blue
Been thinking to myself you're such a beautiful view
I'd go wild with you I'd go wild
Thunder in our heads, lightening down our spines Hiding from the rain in a diamond mine
Howling at the man, smiling in the moon
Eating what we find in our Red Rock room
I'd go wild with you I'd go wild
Track Name: Suddenly Naked
I never wanted this of me, for you
But it's like you said, what can we do?
You showed me such pretty things Then came to paint them black
I want my freedom
Want my colors back
Trying to resist you, when suddenly your naked on the floor begging me to kiss you
But I don't want you anymore
i don't want you anymore
Track Name: Riverlust
Winter is retreating, Summer heat settles in I'm creeping through the tall pines
Where no one's ever been
I filled up all the pages, with poems of the sun Sweat's dripping towards my fingers
The cricket's start to hum
I've got a heart full of riverlust
I'm searching for the cool, cool water I've got a heart full of riverlust
I'm searching for the cool, cool water
There's bits of silver dancing, streaming past our feet Wild flowers where we're lying, fall sets fire to the leaves
I've got a heart full of riverlust
I'm searching for the cool, cool water I've got a heart full of riverlust
I'm searching for the cool, cool water
I lost my breath, as the water swept
over me
My blue lips and shivering turned into a calm relief
I've got a heart full of riverlust
I'm searching for the cool, cool water
Track Name: Tall Promises
Every time, I try to make it right, reaching out to find all the truth inside
Let's admit, part of us is wrong, part of us is right, we don't have to force it no
Half of what you're thinking, Isn't all of innocence take me to that darkness in your mind
Half of what you're saying, i can tell your faking Give me those tall promises that you said
The Strangest part of being half alive is you barely feel the crying, oh oh Can't ignore the coiling snakes at dawn poisoning your plans
Striking at your hands oh no
Half of what you're thinking, Isn't all of innocence take me to that darkness in your mind
Half of what you're saying, i can tell your faking Give me those tall promises that you said
Track Name: I'm Through
Cake on the makeup catch my eye, as you float on by tall tales and short replies, as you drift into the night When I caught you red handed, well it wasn't no surprise I always saw it in your eyes
I'm through living with a lie
I woke from sleep I was at peace

Looked out the window, heard the leaves Then I turned to see you'd gone
Or maybe never came home
You were out late with friends
people hiding from the sun well I hope you had your fun
I'm through living with a lie I'm through living with a lie
There was a time I needed you
to help me up and get me through the bad track record on my skin Kicked out my conscience, let you in i'd hurt myself and you'd just laugh come up with stories for my friends
I was waiting for the end
I'm through living with a lie I'm through living with a lie I'm through living with a lie I'm through living with a lie
Track Name: Dream Inside A Dream
It's a nightmare, waking up with no teeth
On some sinking ship, bouncing around on the sea With the captain's hat hung by your door
Wont be writing no letters no more
It's a dream inside a dream inside a dream Who knows which is which, or what it means It's a dream inside a dream inside a dream Who knows which is which, or where it leads
You want to fly, but you can't find no wind
so you just spread your arms and run till you lift It's all so much fun, until she takes off her face

And you want to run, but you're just jogging in place
It's a dream inside a dream inside a dream Who knows which is which, or what it means It's a dream inside a dream inside a dream Who knows which is which, or where it leads
Track Name: Troubles
Slam the door shut, baby don't look back You know that life did you no good
you were running off the tracks
Take a load off, let it lift away
Your friends aren't really friends at all You're better off this way
Change is gonna come
And you know it ain't too soon Creepin with the cover of the moon You're free as you'll ever be
When everything is wrong
These troubles can't last that long
It's time to repaint, and fix them up
All those kid things you said you'd do
are covered up in dust
It ain't over not even close
You've lived whole lifetimes in your head except the one that mattered most
Change is gonna come
And you know it ain't too soon Creepin with the cover of the moon You're free as you'll ever be
When everything is wrong
These troubles can't last that long
Track Name: Lines
Warm beer, cold women, can get your head just spinning
Sitting cross legged outside the county fair
Chain smoking cigarettes, while some ballerina pirouettes
A dragon tattoo running down her leg

The ferris wheel just blew a fuse, now they're stuck but what a view it's a red sunset, and the young ones try some tongue
I never thought i'd be the one hammered drunk at the house of fun Little kids, stepping all over my head
it never was in my plans, to be the kind of man
Outside the fortune teller, Cursing the lines in my hands

Didn't win no prizes, no not one
always got the worst water gun
and my date up and left me for the worlds strongest man
And all the animals have no rights and the carnies stay up all night Gamblin away, all their minimum wage

The cotton candy starts to stiffen as the lights cease to glisten Some frown faced clown, follows the last family out
I never thought i'd be the one hammered drunk at the house of fun Little kids, stepping all over my head
it never was in my plans, to be the kind of man
Outside the fortune teller, Cursing the lines in my hands
