Turns out everyone was right
And lately I just don't have the strength left to fight
Legs fail, body folds to the ground
A sea of faces, I don't hear a sound
One last gasp, I'm going down
And I drown and I drown
Punchdrunk, taste my own blood
Fade out, I've had enough
Underwater, such comforting things I've seen
A young boy, he could hardly be fifteen
So excited just to make a sound
But he only sings when no one else is around
One last gasp, I'm going down
And I drown and I drown
Blink once, the images are gone
Squint hard against the light of dawn
Comes back in a rush of sound
The rules I've known are breaking down
What I put into this doesn't mean anything
If it hasn't yet then it's not happening
I can see it all so clear
I'm where I am and I was meant to be here
