lyrics

I bore the rising tide of fate
Agreed to bide the time in chains
But now these expectations weigh
And I can’t fight
This need, it builds, it breaks, it pulls away the equilibrium
I bleed, I feel, I need, I see, I take the last steps to oblivion

Oh, I feel the dam is breaking down
Oh, my head below the waters now

Just one breath to fill my lungs
And purge myself of influence
This water, black and thick as blood
It fills me up
This need, it builds, it breaks, it pulls away the equilibrium
I bleed, I feel, I need, I see, I take the last steps to oblivion

Oh, I feel the tide is rising now
Oh, I give myself away and drown

When I’ve
Run out my line
I find
Nothing waiting for me

So I
Drift idly by
And know
It’s breaking

Leave the floodgates open I want you to see
When the waters have closed over me

Oh, my feet have touched the bottom now
Oh, but still I feel I’m sinking down
Sinking down… waning now… sinking…
