  • I was drifting thinking
    You woouldn't let me go
    Why was reaching for
    Something that wasn't there

    Light in the darkest place
    Truth in a silent place
    Hope when it's hopeless and
    There's nothing left to save

    I'm all alone stuck in a bottom because you
    I'm all broken up all the pieces unglued
    I'm seeing everything that I had float away
    Thrown the side like a cast away

    Where are you now?
    Where are you now?

    You know it weighs me down
    Pressure building all around
    You said you'd never let me drown
    But now I'm dead in the water
    Time washing over

    The sacrifice
    Sinking till I'm out of sight
    You said you'd bring me back to life
    But now I'm dead in the water
    Time washing over

    Soaked to the bone and now I'm
    Drenched in a sorrow of the
    Tide that keep rising as my
    Thoughts pull me over

    Breathe when you suffocate can't
    See when you blinded by the
    Flood filling up my lungs
    You cannot hear me scream

    I'm all alone stuck in a bottom because you
    I'm all broken up all the pieces unglued
    I'm seeing everything that I had float away
    Thrown the side like a cast away

    Where are you now?
    Where are you now?

    You know it weighs me down
    Pressure building all around
    You said you'd never let me drown
    But now I'm dead in the water
    Time washing over

    The sacrifice
    Sinking till I'm out of sight
    You said you'd bring me back to life
    But now I'm dead in the water
    Time washing over

    Gotta get my head back above water
    Come and save me 'cause I'm drowning
    Gotta get my head back above water
    Pulling me under farther and farther
    Gotta get my head back above water
    ('Cause I'm sinking,'cause I'm drowning)
    Gotta get my head back above water ('cause I'm drowning)

    You know it weighs me down
    Pressure building all around
    You said you'd never let me drown
    But now I'm dead in the water
    Time washing over

    The sacrifice
    Sinking till I'm out of sight
    You said you'd bring me back to life
    But now I'm dead in the water
