Have you ever witnessed the sheer terror that envelopes a person as they anxiously declare, “I’M AFRAID OF WATER!” Of course you have, and that’s why “afraid of water” is such a visceral allegorical phrase to express unreasonable, overwhelming fear. This track cleverly employs the phrase to express an aversion people and social situations.
This alt-pop group from Northwich/Manchester, UK has that jangly Brit sound that I love and it’s ready to roll on on my weekend playlist!

Lyrics (My transcription, so no guarantees!)
Don’t push me , No, cos I’m not ready
I’ll spend money if I want to, and I’ll sit home if I want to
Sit this one out, Sit this one out, Sit this one out, Sit this one out
until the next one
When the next one comes, I’ll see friends if I want to
that’s if I have friends anymore, they’re not so shallow
all so shallow, all so shallow, all so shallow, all so shallow
So I’ll talk to myself, it’s only way I, the only way to be sure
those whose conversations, don’t push me, no
cos I’m not ready, ? ? ?
don’t push me, no, i really don’t think you ought to, don’t push
I’m afraid of water, I’m afraid of water, I’m afraid of water
I’m afraid of the water
