Matching urgent vocals with surging guitars and pummeling drums, "Swallowed By The Earth" provides a sonic lifeline amidst the tumult of life. Lyrically unpacking the search for hope and meaning in times of despair, the single proves Being As An Ocean remain at the forefront of insightful, socially conscious heavy music.

The band shared the following:

Swallowed By The Earth is a question of how we find meaning and significance in our trials. Do we let them wash over us, consume us, let them defeat us, or do we use them and our failures as tools for growth? It is about keeping persistence of mindset. We must not let ourselves slip into a victim mentality because of our circumstances, which are temporary, but rather, lean into the lessons that each experience has hidden within it. As long as we continue to have faith in a deeper meaning and the untapped strengths that we all have within us and embrace self-reflection, hardship does not have to be earth-shattering, but can become transformative for our souls and character.
