  • Born with a scar far above my head
    I count the stars crowding my vision
    And I feel nothing instead
    I feel nothing instead

    Soak in decay, spoil into loam
    Give what I take but it never feels enough
    So, I give nothing instead
    I give nothing instead

    Take me to the water
    I am not free but I am sorry, I am stone
    You should know I would never let you down
    You should know I would never let you drown

    Loan by the skin, a vessel with two hands
    Touch what I can before I hand it in
    So, I touch nothing instead
    I touch nothing instead

    Born into debt, a line of no request
    Pay what I can but the rest, I have no chance
    So, I pay nothing instead
    I pay nothing instead

    Take me to the water
    I am not free but I am sorry, I am stone
    You should know I would never let you down
    You should know I would never let you drown

    Take me to the water
    Let me soak in slaughter
    I will sink into the bed like a stone
    Take me to the water
    Let me soak in slaughter
    I will sink into the bed like a stone

    Take me to the water
    I am not free but I am sorry, I am stone
    You should know I would never let you down
    You should know I would never let you down
    You should know I would never let you down
    You should know I would never let you drown Writer/s: Nika Roza Danilova
