lyrics

I fell into the water
I can't get up to breathe
I hang imbalanced,
my friend of misery

Can't tell which way is up
Walking circles once again
It's vertigo that twists and pulls
and I can't even stand

Can you see me sinking?
I tried to swim away
I'll be there tomorrow
But only if I live today

I want to hear your name
I want to hear this empty frame
And while the colors dry there's time to watch the world go by,
and think about a way to find a highway to the end of the game

The sun slides through the sky
But it's walled by blackened clouds
I know it's somewhere close
Just have to fly around

Through the broken window
Seagull flies over the sea
He can see what's up ahead
Just wish he'd come tell me

Can you see me sinking?
I tried to swim away
I'll be there tomorrow
But only if I live today

I want to hear your name
I want to hear this empty frame
And while the colors dry there's time to watch the world go by,
and think about a way to find a highway to the end of the game
