Little Black Submarines Lyrics

Little black submarines
Operator please
Put me back on the line
Told my girl I'd be back
Operator please
This is wreckin' my mind

Oh can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost
And out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody...

    Always heard him say, "should have seen it go" as in his mind exiting following in pursuit his mind. A "glow" is comparable, however in that it is just as likely incomprehensible as the certian path of the said "broken heart."

    It's about a guy in a coma. The operator is God and he's asking him to patch him back to his mind... The "voices calling me" are people trying to talk to him in the hospital.
