That some people drown in primal urges brought on by the destabilization of life perspectives?

So primal urges being the drinking and cartwheeling and general partying that this guys getting into - also blaming woman and attacking the ocean bed.

Destabilized perspective being things like the ceiling flying away, clean dirt and behind being in front.

Partying out at sea provides the idea of an unstable place to drown.

Thats sort of clunkily stringing it together for me :)

twelve years pass...

I have to confess that I had to peak at the lyrics to finally hear “and so it was that later.”
