To pull beneath the surface

Hello, everybody!

Could you please tell me what this expression means -

to pull beneath the surface?

(For example, in context: There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the surface)

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Sidle Jinks,

I’m afraid I’m quite at a loss to explain this as I haven’t heard it before. The context in which you heard/read it might help. The only thing that comes to mind is the expression: hit someone below the belt - to take unfair advantage of someone - but that’s all I can think of.


Thank you very much anyway, Alan.
These words were taken from Linknin Park’s song “Crawling”
And the context is:

There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self-control I fear is never ending
Controlling, I can’t seem
To find myself again,
My walls are closing in…

Maybe this will help :slight_smile:

Thank you in advance
