This song is about the experience of baptism.

"Speaking of the strangers" is the talk of the church people during the ceremony.

"Falls suddenly still" is the sound of their voices ceasing when you go under the water.

"Pulse" is that under water the sound of my heartbeat is strong.

"Voice of my will" is that I have chosen to acknowledge my natural state, which is dead through sin.

"Sounds I followed" are the voices of the world, and the prince of the air.

"Heart so stone and deaf finally knows how to hear" is that my understanding is now being enlightened by the Word rather than sense knowledge.

"Coming up clean" is being drawn up from the water symbolizing our resurrection in Jesus.

"Reflect a life no one has seen" is that the person seen in the mirror of the water is a new creature in Christ.

"Ringing of rejoicing" is the rejoicing of the people when he is drawn from the water, and mirrors the rejoicing of the angels in Heaven.

"Deep calls out to deep" is the Spirit of God calling out to his spirit.

"Sinks as I rise out of sleep" is leaving the old man beneath the water.

"Draw me forth" is being lifted from the water, being lifted from death to life.

"Set me on the sides of the north" ties to the state Lucifer tried to take for himself, as described in Isaiah 14:13.

"Strangers" is a counterpoint to the first line of the song, in that now these people are my family.

"Single sea" is the union of the Bride of Christ.

"Once so apart" is the disunity of lost people, who in striving for their own interest destroy their own interest.

"Flows into place" is that like water flows together to form a single unit, so the saved flow together into the Bride.

"Surrender turns and shines sudden light on my face" is the counterintuitive losing one's life in order to find it. By surrendering our right to go it alone, we are given back our true identity.
