Hello Seattle Lyrics
In the hills and highlands
I fall asleep in hospital parking lots
And awake in your mouth
Hello Seattle, I am a manteray
Deep beneathe the blue waves
Ill crawl the sandy bottom of Puget Sound

This song is about Seattle, which Adam Young (the songwriter) often imagined and dreamt about.
He grew up in a small town in Minnesota, and had never travelled a lot, haven't even seen the ocean before.
I his blog he writes about his first trip to Seattle.
"I can remember staring out the window and daydreaming about this place during class when I was a freshmen in high school so needless to say, being here for the first time is indeed a bit surreal for me. And from the little I’ve seen of it thus far, I can safely say it’s enchanting."
In an interview with Female First, Young said:
"Hello Seattle is a song about growing up in Minnesota, imagining what the city of Seattle was like without having visited. It's about daydreams and imaginings where you are things that dwell in/around the Emerald City, thus giving the listener a first person view."

The song is about him experiencing the great city of Seattle in every possible way. He's dreaming about the experiences he had there (very powerful).

It means he was so excited to go to Seattle because he'd always dreamt of it and now since he's there he wants to experience Seattle at every perspective possible

I thought before reading the above that it was a wrong song... i mean 'i awake in your mouth' and 'I will disguise myself as a sleeping pill And descend inside of you' yea it seemed weird but now...i know the truth its about him dreaming about seattle growing up

It's about him when he arrived in seattle when he got his record deal.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Seatless could be the literal city, and it makes him feel secure being there, or it could be a metaphor for somebody who he loves, who makes him feel secure and right where he needs to be.
