lyrics

I'll lay here quiet
as the waters rise around me
just rest a moment
as they consume me

I'll lay here quiet
and drink the oceans in
I’m already at the bottom
cant sink further than where I’ve been

I wake to the panic
the fear of drowning
I open my eyes
to the world around me
(this could really be the end)

I cry out,
but it makes no sound
just life escaping from my lips
I reach up,
but all I find is the sea
the cool night air evades me
I kick my feet,
but my legs have grown so weary
the pale moonlight will sing me to sleep

It’s sink or swim
and I’m tired of drowning
it’s do or die
and I want to breathe again
it’s sink or swim
and I’m sick of dying
it’s do or die
I'll learn to swim once more

I fear I'll miss the oceans
in my lungs
this watery grave was beginning to feel like home
