Drowning

Album: Something Else (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Tech explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct: "With 'Drowning,' a lot of s--t was happening in my love circle," he said "'Drowning' and 'I'm Not a Saint' came out. It's like the people around me were blaming me for s--t, but I was only offering love. My love turned into, 'Oh, that's fu--ed up Tech!' I'm like, 'What do you mean? I'm just trying to help!' I'm drowning in their bulls--t. I'm drowning in my own Davy Jones locker. It's killing me inside. I'm suffocating with all of this bulls--t around me. You know what I mean?"
