  • Life looks different down here
    Inside my dying prison
    If I could reach the edge of this
    I'll take it somewhere if I could

    [Chorus]
    But I am slipping under water
    The tide oh it's pulling me much farther
    Maybe I am drowning, oh I'm drowning

    My Tsunami, my Katrina and my inner Sandy
    Man it will not simmer expanding
    If I swam seem like I would slam the damn thing
    But I'm scrambling, falling like I damaged my hamstring
    I'm deeply disturbed, so many things keep me perturbed
    Inside of me peeping this surge and I'm completely submerged
    My data wiped even if NASA had a sight
    Couldn't catch it with N.O.A.A.'s ghost satellite
    Storms at five with them I'm torn alive
    Hearing the horns from high
    Pain is for sure my eye
    Having a lot of blackouts
    Medics try putting me on medicine
    But I need light
    Just like the East need con Edison
    I'm dead again
    Drowning and everybody else is messed when
    I got troubles thats been pulling me down
    And jesting, water no breath in
    Look how it swept in
    To evacuate or not evacuate?
    Is the question

    [Chorus]

    Teach me to swim, keep me from them
    Eating the limbs and other body pieces from him
    I may be wrong not to, play these songs, caught ya
    When you got me drowning in my own Davy Jones locker
    It's caving in, it's over weight
    No saving him, he's freeloader bait
    And everybody picks him than sticks him
    But your rain ????? equal my shut down system
    Yeah

    [Chorus] Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
